"Trials Universal"style tires????

I'm looking for some tires for my old CL350 Honda that I'm bringing back from the dead. Preferably the original style "scrambler" or "trials universal" type. I can't seem to find anything like that anymore, even in old reliable JC Whitney!!! Any ideas on options here??????????

Google 'Cheng Shin C 186', that's the one you want. The Dunlop OEM might still be around, but you're gonna have to check the tire sites, didn't show up in a search.

Just dont ride on wet bitumen with them unless you have disconnected the brakes first ------.

The modern tires that look closest are trials tyres , the sort the Europeans use for observed trials.

They look very similar but are made with super sticky rubber with tremendous wet grip.
