Don't get this front tire for racing. Or anything, really. I have a good amount of experience with this tire off-road on mostly dry desert terrain, and I absolutely hate it. It has no side-to-side/ cornering grip. It just won't turn. You have to set up perfectly for every little micro adjustment you try to make with the front wheel. You can't steer the bike around under you. It generally has good straight-line braking traction, just don't try to turn or dive into a corner or you'll wash out suddenly and be in pain. Not too great on-road either. Brake very slowly, or the knobs will become ramped fairly quickly. Just not a good tread pattern in my opinion. I liked the Kenda Budds Creek, but they discontinued it. :'( I'm a little confused at all the good ratings here. The rear tire is decent. It hooks up well, and lasts a while, if you get one from a good batch (I have had one that lost all of its side knobs somehow). But the front just bums me out. It's just a bad tread pattern for anything other than traveling in a straight line on flat dirt. Would not recommend it to anyone. Beware the fake reviews!! :)

Well I paid for this tire a month ago tomorrow, and it still hasn't arrived, M.S. refused to refund my money after being 2 weeks late, so I'll just have to wait and see!

Tires performed well in the mud and traction on rocks was good. My problem was i put them on and went to Jericho ATV festival for the weekend. Got a flat. Hole was in the sidewall. I limped it to a dealer shit and got it repaired. Went on a 4 day trip to Maine. 2 separate occasions I ripped holes in the sidewalls there. Thank god we were prepared with plugs and a compressor. Used at least 20 plugs. Large holes. They held air after. The first one I kept riding the second one I went back to camp and in taller my stock tires but ended up riding a friend's backup ATV. Really pissed me off after spending so much on tires. Especially since out of our large group of 10 wheelers I was the only one getting flats. I ended up trading my beautiful bead locks and piece if crap zillas to a friend for his stock wheels and decent off brand aggressive tires. Lost lots on that deal. Wouldn't buy these or refer them ever. Just go get yourself some Kendra executioners. PS Maxxis. I want my money back you sold me junk!

Shipped fast thanks motorcycle superstore. This is my second tire. Tread life was pretty good I got about a year out of the tire. Between main road dirt road double track and singletrack they held up very well .
