WTB: Used dual-sport tires

Front: 110/80 19
Rear: 150/70 17
50/50 Street/Dirt or 40/60 Street/Dirt

I am looking for a set of dual-sport tires for my '12 Suzuki V-Strom DL-650 to use at the upcoming March Moto Madness. I did it with street tires last year but am wanting to take some off-road classes and would like to be better prepared. As I'll only be using them for a short time I was hoping to be able to find some used ones... anyone have anything laying around they would want to sell?
Thanks!

Re: WTB: Used dual-sport tires

You'll want pretty good tires for that 525# pig to learn off-road. Forgo the used tires and pick up a set of the Shinko 804/805 knobbies. They're not that expensive and they work pretty well on the street, too.

That was my back-up if I can't find used.
