Kenda K335 vs Duro HF307

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


thanks,
-Brian

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.
