... but I'd like a tire suggestion please.

My stock XC hardtail came with Bontrager ACX 2.2 which is pretty much their more aggressive XC tire. I had two problems with these tires. #1) the back tire wore really fast. Eventhough I do about 30% paved, I've never had a tire wear out this quickly. #2) Kind of sketchy in high speed fireroad turns... I've taken a few major wash-out spills. I know its not my ability - I think I know what I'm doing :D .

Then I tried IRC Mythos (cheap version) 2.1's. The wear is better, but the front tire seems just as sketchy plus the narrower profile seems trickier on singletrack decents.

Any ideas for maybe a sub $30 tire? I see them all over the net (Nashbar, PricePoint) but I'm not experienced enough to know which are better for the above mentioned conditions.

Thanks!

Under $30 means mostly looking at closeout tires.

Some I have seen on sale:
IRC Backcountry 2.25
IRC Beartrack 2.25

Maybe look for tires in your price range and ask about them.
