hey guys,
my kenda k-rads on my giant stp zero are wearing out and i have started looking for a new pair.
so far i've looked at maxxis holy rollers, maxxis larsen tt's, maxxis lopes bling blings, keda kniptons or a new set of k-rads. i don't want anything to street oriented for example hookworms or something but i also want a bit of grip for the 4x track and so on. So far i'm leaning towards the holyrollers or larsen tts.
any advice?

I like my bling-bling duals, I use them for street and dirt and they're still going strong.

I've been riding the holy rollers, they do well. The bling blings look good too. I just saw some tires, by DMR I think that looked really good for this too.

I third the holy roller suggestion. I'm not too hard on tires, but mine have seemed to last for quite a while.

I've heard the Larsen TTs are really good for dry 4X tracks.

The bling blings are pretty much the ultimate hardpack DS/4x tire. Holy rollers are ultimate urban tires. 'Nuff said.
