Default Ultra Performance tires and gravel

I'm looking into buying my rex some new shoes and i'm thinking of Dunlop's Direzza star specs. My question is how do these kinds of tires (with large tread blocks, performance compounds and few grooves) handle on dirt?
My house is off of a 1mile dirt road with hills and a usually loose gravel setting. Do these tires have less grip on off-road surfaces? dangerously poor traction, or just less than awesome?
Thanks in advance.
