Round, black, hopefully hold air ;D . Really tho from what I've been seeing holeshots might be over rated. Might be only certain types, but they tend to wear quickly. Have seen good feedback on CST and Bazookas. Rockin' a set of Shreaders myself, along with lot's other tires, lol
 
JMHO, your results may, and will vary  8)

Holeshots are good tires for what they were built for, racing.  They are usable tires for general purpose use and not very good tires for offroading (read:mud).  I had a set and those blocked treads would clog easily rendering them useless.
 
Kenda Kutters are what I have on the back now and they clear a lot easier of mud and maintain traction where the holeshots didn't do as well.  They are thick tires and hold up reasonably well (freek has had his longer than I so he can speak better to durability).
 
From the pictures, Ray's King Slashers look to be good tires.  Not sure what they can be had for over here but they looked nice.
