    New question here. Duro Tires

    So I was browsing jensonusa and came across 2 Duro tires Matador and Gremlin they were relatively cheap but when i looked for reviews on them they are nowhere to be found.
    I was wondering if anyone here has ever used either tire?
    If you can't fix it with duct tape, you aren't using enough.

    I don't know about mtb tires, but Duro's RV tires are about the worst there is.

    If you see nothing about them, and they're cheap, stay away. I stay away from cheap tires as it is. The rubber that's contacting the ground is very important, and I'd rather spend a few extra bucks for a nice tire that will perform well.
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    Just put a 29er Gremlin on a Stan's Arch and it beaded right up with the juice and soaping the sidewalls. Holding air. Yet to test ride.

    Edit: The Gremlin is a 2.2 for sure (measured with calipers) but the knobs are not as tall as the Duro website depicts. Looks to be about 1/2 to 2/3 of the tread depth that's depicted. I have a Geax AKA on the front and when that wears down I'm gonna put a Matador on the front. Hey, for $28 why not?

    My only experience with anything from Duro are the 26"x3" Razorback—they’re super-freakin’ heavy, but have never gotten any punctures or pinchflats with them. These things can take a serious beating.
