Sorry to resurrect this post but I like the kenda small block 8. Very grippy dual compound, but roll well and find grip on wet roots and rocks. Mud is a no no however, and the sidewalls are very thin, therefore vulnerable to big rocks...

A smmothish centre for the road and PLENTY of grip for offroad.


The 1.8 with decent pressure would be perfect.
