Best DH tires for the price...

I need a set of DH tires that won't cost me a lot of money. My problem is that its an old logging road of which is 5 miles of complete downhill. In some spots its extremely steep and there is many sharp rocks. I have ridden the road like three times (Still haven't go bored w/ it...its insane), and haven't got any flats, but I am just waiting to get one cuase my tires are cross country tires. Whats the best deal??

Maxxis is going to be one of the cheeper ones....still good tires though. Is all you want tougher sidewalls? Or are the XC tires sliding on you. A good set of Dh tires is gunna run you upwards of $80, usually more than that even.

You can find maxxis for 50 cdn. I love maxxis and personally never had a problem. I know Kona had an issue but again, I have been running them for 3 years and love their strength, weight and wear time.
