Kutter vs Klaw Front Tires

My stock front tires are well overdue for some replacements. I have narrowed my search to Kenda Klaw XC 23x7-10 or Kenda Kutter xc 22x7-10. I initially wanted to go with the Kutter but then realized they don't come in a 23" tire, but I did find the Klaw in a 23". I was curious how the tire height will affect the ride. Of course it will have increased ground clearance but how will the increased height affect corning, turning radius etc....of course the stock front tires are 21". Any knowledge, opinion or experiences with any of these tires will help, I also looked at the Maxis Rzr 2's but don't want to pay for them. I mainly ride in the coal region of Pennsylvania, mostly trails(open and tight wooded), some rocky areas, hill climbs and pretty much everything other then sand.

23" will rub some nerfs. I'm wondering what you have on the rear? The Klaw will be better in mud, and the Kutter will be great in all the conditions you mention above. I have the Rzr II's and they are sweet. I herd the Kutters will rattle your teeth at high speeds on the black top.

I am running rzr's on the back. I don't have nerf bars so I am not worried about the tires rubbing if I went with a 23. One of my concerns about the kutters is what you mentioned, I wonder how the kutters would be on a hard packed dirt road. There is still coal mining where I ride,there are large dirt roads in the mountains where the equipment can get around. I wonder how the kutters would be on those roads at higher speeds.

I was hoping to hear from someone who is using the kutters up front.

I've had both kutters and the Razor IIs. I prefer the Razor IIs on the front of mine. The kutters do seem to slip on wet rocks/grass a lot easier when in technical sections compared to the Razor IIs.

Rastled- Did you find that the Kutters cause a lot of vibration while riding, other then blacktop.

Thanks for the link I will look into the GBC's

I have a 21" pair of these and a 23" pair of Razr II's, both work great!

I have heard nothing but good about kenda so I myself will be putting them on the back of mine. That is when the stockers wear out.

Any one know where to get them cheap now a days? I know Rocky Mountain jacked the price up on them awhile back. I'm glad I got mine when i did for under $75 each!
