This has been the best front tire I have used on my 530 EXC. I ran this to pre-run the Baja 500 along with the Kenda Trakmaster in the rear. The tire combination was perfect for hooking up in all desert conditions. I ran 14 psi with bridgestone ultra heavy duty tubes and slime in the tubes and never had any issues. They hooked up from the soft sand to the rocky hardpack. The side lugs ended up with minor chunking, but did not cause any issues. My front end felt solid and never felt like it would wash out at all. I am extremely with this tire and will not consider another one!
