    That is odd. I would not expect a pinhole puncture through the casing of the tire. What kind of tubes were you using?

    went to install my new pro 4.5's today. mounted both tires backwards. twice. I hate getting old.

    so maybe instead of having to pump them up yet again, maybe I can just ride backwards....

    I am 146 lbs and have them on a 20 lb bike. I am running 6 psi front and back. Here is a link to yesterdays race with them. I had to drop to 6 psi to get the corner traction I want. The beginning is the warm up. The wooded section is the best part to watch.

    did not indicate a casing puncture. The Kenda tube in my 4.5 Pro recently developed a pinhole leak, successfully patched, along a sidewall well away from the valve stem with no corresponding tire puncture. A manufacturing defect in the tube, exacerbated by stretching to fill a larger (than 4.0) tire casing, is suspected

    I'd like to hear about that as well.

    I'm using the 4.5 pro and so far they are awesome in the snow!

    The casing was punctured. Tube punctured same exact spot as the casing.

    All I did with the tires is ride them on gravel.

    Never again will I own Kenda Juggernaut Pro tires.

    I'm having a hard time setting the bead on 4.5 Pros tubeless. Any suggestions? I'm using a compressor and the bead isn't moving at all.

    I set up my 4.0 pros and D5's very easily with a hand pump and generous supply of windex

    What I do:
    I first mount it with a tube , making sure one side is well seated.
    I remove the tube on the non seated side
    Put the valve and sealant before putting the tire back on

    Then , here's what might help you , I put the wheel horizontal , the unseated side down , while putting air , I "push" the tire so that the seating gets closer to the side of the rim.
    I do it alone but a third or fourth hand might be helpful for the first time.


    Hope that helps

    Kenda Juggernaut 26x4.0 (and 4.5)

    Since I know there is a little of negative sentiment on these....Just wanted to say that I've been impressed with my 4.5 sports in up to 5 inches of wetter snow. 3psi up front and 5 in the rear ( I weigh 200) and I've never needed more grip, even over snow covered, wet roots. At those presssures, pavement is torture. Pump them up to 15 or so and they actually roll along pretty well. Have had them set up tubeless on non-tubeless rims for over 3 months with no issues.
