I am going to a Michelin Desert front for my next one. Not saying you are wrong, just saying they are not a great front if you want to run under 34 psi in the front.

I run 24psi front off road and have had no issues.

You're lucky. I too have destroyed my front wheel. Even running 34psi.
Never got a pinched flat with a tkc. I have however with the D606, desert and the D908 front.
I now run woody's wheels. They have taken some serious hits and still holding up.

From my trip to Albania last summer.




In 2009 I tried it already but that ended on a car in Croatia.
