Got a question. I bought the maxxlite 310 for my rear wheel w/ light weight inner tube. It made a huge difference compare to my Panaracer tires w/ regular tube. On Monday I switch my front tires (panaracer) to Kenda Kross (slicks in the middle w/ knobs on the side) that weights 504 grams and noticed how quiet this thing was. Now my rear maxxlite 310 seems loud. I mean you can actually hear the rear tires and it seems like there's a car behind you all the time (40-45 psi on road). Now I'm thinking of switching back my Kenda Kross that I have in my garage and let the maxxlite take a break. Will this make any difference since I do 80% of on-road and 20% of off-road?
Kenda Kross => actual weight 504 grams/ very quiet onroad
Maxlite310 => 310 grams/ biker next to me can hear the road noise
What do you guys think?
