I'm not gonna lie. This video review sure makes it sound good, and worth considering. The price is good, too.

Ok tires but the Kenda Washougals perform just was well as Dunlop and last a lot longer.

Tried a set two years ago. They did what they were desinged to do: they lasted long, the grip level was just a little lower than the 32s and they didn't do anything unexpected. One thing I found: the rear only worked well at low air pressures

The Pirelli MX32 Pro is absolutely awesome for the rear tire. It tracks straight and has awesome traction.

I've been running this combo for years. It does what it's ment to do. Lasts well, versatile on a range of surfaces with no surprises.
I ride on tracks ranging from sand to hardpack and they just work.

Hard pack dirt.
Here in the summer months, the tracks get rock hard packed, with a layer of loose powder on top.
Has anyone been out on the hard pack with these tires?

X2 on this. Wears just as fast as the Dunlop and hooks up great! Ridden on everything from soft to hard pack and it works awesome on everything. Even raced an off road race with it. I'm due for a new tire and I'll be getting another MX32 Pro

I was always told a tire that is not wearing is not doing its job. These tires are bullet proof but I find them to have poor traction. I will try another set of Pirelli tires, just not the extra x

This is exactly what I've been wondering.
Tires that hook up well, generally tend to wear out faster.
I'm curious if there's some kind of wizardry going on with this compound and thread pattern that allows hook up and less wear.

I hated the Kenda Washougal front tire I had, that thing was pure evil. Wildly inconsistent....if I had to describe it with one word it would be "wallow". The rears aren't bad though.

They have a new Washougal front that just came out but I never heard anyone complain of issues with the previous. You could also try the Millville.

Ran a set a couple years back. Lasted a good long time, but traction in anything semi soft is less than amazing

The newer washougal's are good tires I always ran the 90/100 front. I tried the older 80/100 front and it used to have slightly different side knobs than the 90/100 and it sucked. The newer daul compound washougal front has the design the 90/100 had all along. The 90/100 was much closer to the old 756 design the 80/100 the second row from the middle used to have a pointed edge now they are square.

Just ordered the extra X rear.
Didn't order the front, a little bit hesitant as I like my Dunlop mx3s.
