Question on tires

Hey folks,

I need to replace the very worn original tire on my old Miyata 24 and I want to get a blue one that looks similar to the OEM. I found one on Ebay (http://goo.gl/zyAc8c) that has a BMX tread pattern and it made me wonder if there is any noticeable increase in rolling resistance when using an off-road tire for road work. This may be a silly question - there might not be any difference in feel between a knobby tire and a road tire - but if there is my thought was that I might get tired a little sooner because I'm working a bit harder to pedal. Almost all my saddle time is on-road distance riding - should I just go with the knobby and not over think it? :-)

Thanks.
