Green laning tyres

What's the latest thoughts on green laning tyres? I have crf250x. Looking for reasonable wear rate but decently chunky. I'm not worried about them lasting forever.
I have Ac10s at the moment which I've used for enduring/rally type events.
Thanks

Are you doing a lot of road miles? The tyres that perform best in the dirt will disintegrate fairly rapidly on the road, however for green-laning you don't need the best tyre and you can even run pretty worn out tyres with little ill-effect

I'm a relative newbie, having only had a little experience over the last year.

I've got a Yamaha ttr 250 that has Bridgestone trailwing 301/302 fitted, and tbh they've been fine for my level of experience. As i tend to do a fair amount of tarmac en route to any BOATs they seem capable enough and haven't destroyed themselves either.

Maxxis IT all day long, best trail tyre out there, with good road maners, go see Derek at Simply Trail he's a TRF member and a good source of info, you may even get a brew.. 8-)
