What Tires Do You Use?

I have a late 90's Dyno Zone that needs a rear tire and was wondering what other people use. I haven't ridden the bike in probably 5-6 years (been riding my mtb and road bike) but am wanting to take it out to the trails a little and do some jumps. The trails I ride are dirt and have multiple single and double jumps up to 4ft high.

It's original tires, which are still on the front tire are the old GT tires that have GT written on the tread, and I loved those tires, but just can't seem to find them any more. Any Ideas? Here is a pic of the original tires.

I'm a fan of the Maxxis Max Daddies, though I think the Holy Rollers would probably work better for you. Kenda makes the Small Block 8 for BMX, now. Of course, there's always the venerable Tioga Comp III.

Yours look to be in better shape than the Haro Catapult tires that look like the original issue on mine. 2.25 x 20 front, 2.10 x 20 rear.

Thanks for all the help. I think I am going to go with the Holy Rollers once I get some money to put into that bike. Like I said, I haven't ridden the bike in like 5-6 years and it's going to need a set of rear breaks also at the same time, so I'm gonna need close to $70 to get it back up and running..... but it's time is coming.
