    Kenda K908 Pathfinder Tires

    Hi,

    I'm looking for opinions on the Kenda Pathfinder tire, especially if anyone has also tried the Kenda Kross Plus tires. I have true mountain bike tires on my bike and have found myself riding on pavement and carriageways / rail trails more than anything where the worst surface is loose stone or a little mud. A friend of mine let me ride his bike with Kenda Kross Plus tires on it. Of course, it was a HUGE difference. I came a across the Kenda Pathfinders though and they look like they might be more versatile and as fast. I'd like to get some opinions to help me decide. TIA

    I don't know if this is still the case, but Kenda used to be a low-end, low-quality tire. I've only owned one set, at least 15 years ago, and one out of the two was so out-of-round i couldn't ride it. I could feel the bike go up and down as the high spot hit the ground. Certainly it's an unusual problem, but I've never had another tire do that, and I've been riding since the '70s.
    There are lots of options in tires these days, and the price difference in the midrange isn't huge. Tires aren't a good place to cut corners if you have an option. Go look in a bike shop.

    I've put Kenda Kross Supreme tires on my hybrid and have had great performance on or off road.

    My friend has been riding the Kross Plus for a while with no problems so maybe they have improved. I think I'm going to go with the Kross for now.
