    Busted Rubber

    Happens to all of us.

    540 miles on a Small Block 8 and the sidewall/bead interface f@gs out.

    Like aenema says: I'm done with Kenda. So long as they keep making toy tires that is.

    Had the same issue with a 2.4 Mutanoraptor. Wouldn't stay on the rim. Lots of tread left too. Blech.

    I lost a number of tread blocks on contis. My latest set of tires has been IRC Mythos which were super cheap at performance. They have held up well but the standard tire wont stans on 819 rim. I grabbed a bontrager jones something and it is running great as a stans on ust setup. Seems like middle of road tires run better than the highend stuff.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?

    Let's face it TC

    the rubber manufacturers base their designs on AVERAGE use

    you must be using yours a lot longer and harder

    Rubber Rememberences

    Check your PM's Mine always say: "stop posting f@cking @$$!!!""" rubber i remember fondly A Few Of My Faves:

    Kenda Flame 3.0 (a great trail tire except for mud ice and snow AND you don't need suspension also this is one of the best sand and hard rock tires EVER)

    Kenda Short Track 2.5 (I haven't ridden this tire or used it i don't own any yet i LOVE the way it looks in the catalog)

    Kenda Kiniption 2.35 (did I spell this right? since i myself often throw kiniption fits i love the NAME of this tire a lot also it is fast as lightning turns like a hockey skate and absorbs a lot of shock Weird that for an "asphault" tire it totally rocks anything but the aformentioned snow ice and mud)

    I could just go ON AND ON but i have a luncheon date with several milfs and a bottle of black velvet I don't want to miss this luncheon date I really really want to make it I should stop typing now and go to my luncheon date Stop Typing And Go To Your Luncheon Date With Several MILF's And A Bottle Of Black Velvet!!!
