I've put about 100 miles on these tires (front snd rear) without any issues. No chunking or cracking and decent traction. They're mounted on a KTM 500 exc and seem to be better than the Continental TKC 80's that it came with. The rear tire can be mounted in either ditection. Ond way for intermediate to hard tetrain and thd other way for soft terrain and sand. If you mojnt it for soft terrain but use it on hard, I could see issues with chunking.
Highly recommend this tire for sandy to medium hard pack conditions. Raced 140 miles this last weekend in NM and the tire worked flawlessly. I don't care about wear, just performance and this tire passed. KX450
My son and our team mate have run many tires but always gravitate back to the Millville. We have tried Washougals from Kenda and they are pretty good but... We have also run Pirelli Scorpions, Dunlop Geomax, and Michelin Starcross. The Starcross comes in second behind the Millville.
Put this and another kenda on my front on a CR250 traction was awesome, Probably best traction tire i've bought. But its half way through the summer and maybe 4 track rides on this tire and a dozen or so ride around my farm and the lugs are tearing and edges rounded. If you race and get tire discounts i recommend it but not for weekend warriors.
overall im happy with the tire. I run a highly modified kx450f on mostly soft terrain. The tire seems to hook up well and launches straight. cornering is consistent with little washout. so far the only down fall of the tire is the leading edge of the lugs are peeling off rather quickly compared to a more expensive tire. But overall great bang for your buck.
This is the first time I tried a Kenda tire, and it is not good. I rode for a total of about 2 hours so far in nothing but mud, and I might get another 2. This tire is already chunking badly, and all the knobs are rounded right off.
