    Im in serious need of new shoes and looking at either the Kenda K335 or the Duro HF307.

    I have used the K335 as a pusher and really happy with it. I ride 90% dirt/gravel (and winter snow/slush/mud) only using pavement for connectors so im looking to put the same tire all the way around and not sure the K335 is a great choice up front. This got me looking at the Duro 307.

    Anyone have any first hand experience between the two?

    I believe the 307 is narrower (which for me is a minus) but I could be wrong. I was once before :D


    thanks,

    I've run both, the 307 lasts longer, other than that they are pretty much the same, both wear uneven on the front.

    The 307 might last longer, but the 335 is a better off road tire in mud and snow( in my opinion.)

    Thanks for the opinions and replies.

    Ive been happy with the K335 as a pusher. That and the fact that the 307 is "out of stock nationwide", means the 335 wins. Even though that means changing tires again in 3 - 4K.

    Now I have to decide whether to go with it up front or not. Ive read alot about it wearing "funny" up front.

    I like a 308 in the front, and a knobby tire on the pusher. Any knobby tire will wear funny up front.

    Hell my 308 up in front wore funny. I've got a 335 up there now, will report back on results. Initial impressions are that it's iffier on corner feel but Stops Real Good in crappy weather.
