I like these tyres but they took some getting used to, they roll smooth and fast plus their light but they don't grip as well as some other tyres out there, dunno whether or not it was because they are new but there was a few times on some less grippy surfaces that I slid out but on say car park type Tarmac they were all good.

If I had to give em a score out of ten I'd give em an 7 or 8 and I'd buy them again,

I've heard a few people say they ware down quite quickly, if anyone has these how long do they last on average! Say if you used them everyday?

They s seem to get blowouts and pitch flats a lot. I've never ran them but a friend of mine did and he hated them.

I know quite a few people that have had them, they'll probably last 2-3 maybe 4 Months if you ride everyday from what I've seen.

I heard from people that the sidewalls are quiet thin, so it's easier that you go through them while grinding some concrete ledge than from normal wear.

I've had Machetes and Demolitions. When you wear them down, they get thin and get punctures real easily. Sidewalls are also thin as mentioned above. I need to get new tires. If it were not for me to trade my Fit FAF, it would've not had a flat since May 2012....

Tread pattern is definitely better. When you start getting down to 80% tread, I immediately suggest getting a tire soon. I traded one with 85%. When it got to 80%, I got 2 flats in a weeks' period. I ride a bunch of duct tape and a stop flat tire liner inside now with a thicker Hutchinson tube.

Nice. Just today I did a wallride into a bunch of gravel and glass and it held up fine.

Nice, Aitkens are some dope tires for sure, also heard good stuff about GLHs.

I ride mine at 70psi 2.35 front and rear. They arent too slick once they wear in some unless you ride like 100 psi, i love them so far. ive had my front for a month or so, and the rear for like a week and a half. They grip nice for wallrides and stuff. My buddy also rides them front and rear, he has had them a few months, no flats or anything....but he doesnt ride everyday either. In my opinion, theyre a good all around tire. (I ride everything with them...park, street, dirt, ive even taken them to the track.)
