I predict that this will bubble up as well. It looks like the tank is the semi-permiable type. It will not hold any type of paint.

other knobby options?

I don't have a GS, but I am buying a bike that takes the same size tires. Are there any options to the TKC-80 in the states, for a knobby type tire? I cannot seem to find one.
