Good Street Tire

The Good:

Fast rolling, great price and tread lasted a long time

The Bad:

I kept blowing out the sidewalls of K-Rads for years, about a pair a year. I discovered the Kiniption tire from Kenda with the tread wrapping from bead to bead and my sidewall issue stopped.

Overall Review:

Good tire for street and dj riding, but I found a tire that suited me and my riding a bit better.

Fast, fun and inexpensive

The Good:

Fast rolling, fairly high volume, pumps up to 80 psi, great on the street, very good on hard-pack, fair on loose over. Doesn't puncture easily. Lasts for ages.

The Bad:

None found.

Overall Review:

I've commuted on many narrower, slicker tires with less volume in the city and had more aggressive tread in the hills. Although I wouldn't use this outside of hard-pack or light dirt I love it around town and on BMX tracks etc. I found that having a narrow slick tire doesn't make you that much faster in the city and wow you can have fun on nearly any surface if you go wider and with a bit of tread you can go almost anywhere if it hasn't rained recently. Pump 'em up, don't narrow your hoops! Might try Schwalbe Table Top next time, but these have been a blast.
