    So...I bought the cheapest "GNCC Tread Pattern" tire I could find for my Blaster (10" ITP Rear Wheels)
    These set me back about $93 for the pair and were shipped to my door in about three days from Amazon.

    Let me start off by saying they were a pain to seat the bead.

    The first tire I had to spray brake cleaner inside the tire, around the bead, light it on fire, and then keep spraying until there was enough gas inside the tire to seat the bead.

    The second tire I just manhandled and used my air gun with the trigger taped.

    First impressions, I like the tread pattern a lot. The tread goes all the way around the tire and tapers slightly into the sidewall, so you got a lot of mechanical grip regardless of how tipped over you are.
    Also, they list the metric equivalent size on the tire (not that it's that important).
    These are also 4-Ply, so they seem fairly strong.

    Here is a link to the tire: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WHQK7QY/?tag=jyj356j5-20

    I will let everyone know how they do this weekend since I'm riding in Michaux State Forest with the girlfriend and her family.

    So I rode in Michaux State Forest (Fayetteville, PA) and these things GRIP and I mean they grip hard.
    It might be the fact that I got used to bald rear tires, but I like these things!

    Psh, I wish we had snow. I only go to go snowboarding once this year.
    It's been cold-ish, but not on a daily basis.

    I highly recommend them. Seating them is a pain though.

    Yeah, I kind of forgot Florida is pretty swampy.
    I'm trying to get the old lady to ride dirtbikes with me. I made progress; she got herself an XR100 to learn on.

    She would probably be good on one of those or the CRF150F
