Can I have some advice?

Well, I'm bringing my bike out to my lake cabin this summer and I'm planning on using it on the dirt trails in the woods in back of our cabin. Right now, I have street tires on my bike and sometimes they slip on some of the trails. I'm looking to get some aggressive tires. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Is it used? And doesnt it cost just $5 more new, and since your going to pay shipping, then it will be the same right?

I would never buy tires on Ebay, haha
