I would say screw it to be honest. I rest my life on tires responding EXACTLY the same way consistently.

Kiss the new expensive tire goodbye.

A handshake is probably good enough.

Factory's aren't too expensive, and they're not that nice. I was going down a garage with dimpled ground for traction and when i turned (I go hands-off-brakes often now), my front washed out on a highly grippy surface. It's no trail, but dayum, it left a big scar on my left elbow.

There are plenty of cheap tires that will likely perform better than a wire bead Tioga factory. I've used the DH and XC versions and they're terrible in anything but mud and soft dirt.
