Depending on how many miles you put on your bike a year, you may just want to select a good 50/50 tire in your price range and go with it.
I do caution you to do some research as some tires are tough to ride on (riding on marbles sensation, e.g.). For example, the 244 is still a good tire off road, but really catches grooved pavement/asphalt. And it's inexpensive.
The other side of the spectrum are the Heidi's, Karoo's, TKC70's, Mefo's and T63's. All fine tires.
I've had 8 different tire models on my bikes and all have their strong points. It's been my experience that the Shinko's and Kenda's are great tires.
There are two rules for being successful in life.
Rule 1: Never tell others everything you know.
