Chunky off road tyres?

Hi all, after many punctures in the wheels of my quinny buzz I'm looking at getting some chunky off road tyres (specifically these, but I'm curious as to how they will affect the ride when on the street, we do a lot of dog walking but I want to keep the nice smooth ride it currently has when on pavement.

My other half thinks it will make the ride rumbly / bumpy, does anyone have any experience using these types of tyres? What are they like for street use?

Puncture resistant inner tubes will also help. I upgraded to these following numerous dog walking punctures and haven't had a problem since

Have you got slime in the tyres you already have? If not, it's about £5 from your local bike shop. It works a treat.
