Kenda Kutter Sliced Side Wall on 2nd Ride

I live in Knoxville, TN and ride on real rocky trails.

I was 15 minutes into my second ride with the Kenda Kutter 22x9-11 rears and my Buddy pulled up and said my right rear tire was flat.

Anyone else having problems with the side walls holding up in rocky terrain?

Nope, i ride dried up creekbeds and really sharp rocks, not a problem. But you have to ride wisely and know to try to stay off sharp ledges.

What tire pressures are you running?

I dropped down to 4.75psi in the rears for the ride, since it had rained a bunch the night before.

I've read that more pressure prevents flats, but I would think if the sidewall has more give, it would be Less prone to puncture... what am I missing here?

I agree with you all the way. As far as reading higher is better, I don't belive this or can I understand it at all. If tire has less pressure there is more give, and there for less chance of a puncture. I run my rear Kutters around 3-4 lbs. Higher if I am just going to be on the blacktop, for better speed but only like 5lbs.

I am thinking of using my damaged tire as a tubed spare for out of town rides.

I have a question for you guys that have used a tube on an offset wheel like our rears. What type of valve stem did the tube have...

1) Was the stem offset on the tube (to bring the stem more to one side of the tube)
2) Did the stem have a 90 degree bend?

Thanks.

More psi does prevent punctures.

Most punctures are caused by the sidewall flexing ,hitting a sharp edge and bingo you have a flat. Running a higher pressure makes the ride a little harder and skittish on hard packed greasey surfaces but the sidewall flexes less.A small price to pay for never needing to change a flat tire.

I never run less than 8 lbs in my tires whether it be 2,4 or 6 ply , I have cuts in my tires but in 8 years of racing , never had a flat. I flip the tires over now and again , so the outside becomes the inside but I am saying you are wrong. IMO.
I got this info from 2 guy's I know that have 16 British Titles to there name.
Sorry but I race most types of racing , just have Supermoto and supercross then I have tried everything except desert racing. This will be an expensive one as I may have to come over to the US.

How ever you try to explain this it makes no sense to me. And I have yet to cut a tire, and I'm sure you have seen the videos of the terrain I ride. I would rather my tire flex over a sharp object, than not flex and then bingo there's a sliced tire. Hell I ran my stock tires till they were almost bald in the mountains of West Virginia.

After reading this again, I guess I understand what your saying as far as higher pressure prevents a side wall cut. But I would think it would dbl your chances of getting a tread side flat. IDK I just like to ride...

I am not a racer. But I have been riding atvs for 20+ yrs. I always run between 3-5psi in pretty much all tires I have ever had. I don't have flats. My stockers went over a year with no air added, almost 2 before I went to kutters. I would still put stockers on and go. I have never run over 5 in the kutters. I run jeep trails, rock ledges, creek gravel, freshly broken trails, pretty much anything. But since I don't race or have a trophy i am bullshitting. I am not comparing myself to anybody. But i have been born and raised a farmer, raised around dirt track racing, truck pulling, tractor pulls, rockcrawling, mudding, drag racing and have never heard more pressure is better.
