Try the Maxxiss IT's for a durable long lasting tire that works reasonably good and usually isnt too bad on the price.

My experience with low cost tires is that they universally comply with the adage that you get what you pay for. That's less true of middle to higher priced ones, though. The thing you have to keep in mind is that ultimately it will boil down to a question of what works on your bike for the dirt you ride in in terms of traction and durability, and the tires I choose for desert racing in SoCal may very well completely suck in the Tennessee woods.

If you had a S12 , try a m12. It mite last longer ? It seems to work good in mixed terrain , sand to medium dirt.
