Grippy tire suggestions?

I currently have some pretty worn-out Kenda tires that came stock on my bike. Today at the skatepark, I slid out and fell twice. Once was when I was just turning on flat ground because of a small amount of sand. So, could you guys give me some suggestions on some good, grippy tires? I ride mostly park and some street. I also would prefer for the tires to be under $30. I was thinking maybe a Fit FAF for the front and a Demolition Momentum for the back.

Just got a 2.25" Demolition Machete and it seems to be faster and grippier than my Aitken. I'm more confident with it at least.

demolition tires have extraordinary grip. machete's grip everything. momentum dont grab slick wood/concrete so well but fine anywhere else


I'm on the vital legit list!

Thanks, guys! I'm thinking Momentum in the back and Machete in the front.

I've heard a LOT of good things about Gum Top/Black Wall Cult Dehart Tyres. I'm pretty sure i am going to get myself a set!

I don't really like the way they look, but I will consider them.

Love my Aitkens and have a ross in the rear just bc it was mad on sale. Heard good thing about the demo machetes though

Everyone I know that has had Momentums say they are terrible, and they wear out really fast.

Recently I tried some gum dehart tires and they feel weird but still very grippy

I just replace my front undertaker for a fly rubben. The undertaker last long and is very grippy. The rubben is more grippy but wear faster.

And for the back tire just go with some hawks
