Buy the type of tires that will make you most safe on the most difficult surface you'll be on. Who's ridden the Trans-Labrador and can advise this "beginner-to-average riding skill," rider?
Mitas E07 is another good choice along with the Heidi K60, also the Conti TKC70.
Knobbier tires include the Conti TKC80, Kenda Big Block, Shinko 804/805, Metzeler Karoo3, Michelin Anakee Wild.
Keep in mind that there is no standard for what is 80/20 or 90/10 or 50/50 or whatever. The numbers are whatever the marketing V.P. wants to publish.
