Kenda Kontacts are what most people use...at least the people i know...i use them because they give you pretty good grip and also don't make a humming noise when you are riding....and they give you ok grip in the dirt

Kenda Kontacts are ok but its a Kenda.....I got 2 new Maxxis Holy Rolllers...PM if interested. I got M Treads on my bike and they are great. Maxxis makes a hell of tire. Kenda is a base level one.

I've been riding primo walls ever since they hit the market, ages ago. While a few of them have taking serious beatings, most of them last a really long time. Kenda uses a pretty soft compound, riding street they'll wear down really fast.

I doubt Haro makes tires. I'm sure they're Haro branded tires made by Cheng Shin or some other huge factory in China.

Actually, Haro tires - like every other Haro product - are outsourced to the ROC, dumbass.

For the record, S&M/Revenge tires are outsourced to IRC in Korea.

LRY,

Don't tell someone to learn to spell correctly when you don't know the difference between "your" and "you're"
