I was riding around last weekend. Did a 10 mile spin. All on the original tires. Kinda crazy.. Last year I was looking for new tires at the local dealer. Waited 2 months.. he couldn't get them, & winter came along, and I forgot about it. I see them on Ebay.. One day I'll do it. After I fix my carb problem....

This tires are all original. Never had a flat, nothing.

Yes, DT175. The original tires served me well :) I'm looking for more of an Enduro tire. I no longer go trail riding. Just out for a weekend spin through the neighborhood.

If you want original look in a new tire, cheap, Shinko SR241 are visually correct and come in appropriate sizes for that bike:

There are a bunch of other options in the 18" rear 21" front to get better performance.

Kenda K270 are a really good all around tire that performs great on the street and will be capable of taking you almost anywhere off road.

If you are doing street and gravel roads only (no mud/sand/goop) then the Shinko 705 is a very nice tire with long wear.
