The Kenda Karma has been a long time favorite. The Karma features small, square, low profile knobs. This tire can be used as either a front or rear tire in almost any condition.
This version of the Karma features an upscale version of the L3R rubber blend used for performance motorcycle tires. With the L3R Plus you’ll enjoy longer tread life, and a lighter tire

Kenda is pretty outspoken they don't endorse setting their tires up tubeless unless they're specifically built for it. I usually still have good luck, but this tire starts burping off the rim pretty easy even after a solid tubeless setup. I've been running tubes in mine just to avoid the hassle.
CONS: Not Tubeless Ready
PROS: Durable, Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Lightweight
BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Casual Riding
Since this is my first mtb I'm not to sure on the milage these tires should give but it seems they ware out a bit to fast. Just about need new tires on my bike after 375 miles, just wish they last a bit longer.
Overall they grip well in all types of dry AZ terrain. I'd like to try them again.
PROS: Fast Roll, Easy To Install, Lightweight, Attractive Design, Durable
PROS: Lightweight, Very Fast Rolling
BEST USES: Racing, Best Suited On Hard Pack
