Mongoose Kos Kruiser

Dis the right forum? Had this guy for 20 years+ ,mint, never off road and it needs new street tires. The rims are Araya 26 x 1.75 riding on Bullseyes. The tires I originally installed are Ritchey 26 x 1.9 ;80 psi units. Of course they are dry-rotted so I am looking for some replacements for street only use and would like some recommendations for a size and particular brand/model. Suppose a high pressure slick may be in order but I have been out of the business for a while and am not sure about the best tires out there currently. Is there any interest in these old Kos units anymore? Got this one as a frame/fork NIB in 1985.

Try Commuting. BMX is mostly 20", with a few cruisers thrown in.
