Kutters or Klaws?

I am about ready to buy some new tires to replace the stock tires and have done a ton of research and have decided to either get Kenda Kutters XC or Klaws XC. But I have a few questions maybe someone with experience can help me with.

I live in Northern West Virginia and I ride mainly on rutted forest trails, hard pack dirt, some pavement and creek beds but I also like to do hill climbs and hit mud holes. I think I'm going with 22" front and back setup but was wondering which would be the better tire for me the Klaw XC or the Kutter XC? I have read were some say to put Klaws on the front and Kutteras on the back. Also were can I get the Kenda Klaw XC, I see Rocky Mountain has the Klaw MX but not the XC.

Thanks

Thanks for the information, I just wonder which tire is better in the mud, Kutter or Klaw? Here is a picture of my bike from last weekend, the rack has held up pretty good for me so far but had to tighten the hell of of the bolts and used loctite.

I got kutters as well, and I really like them, for that price I don't think I could get any better performance. They do really well on any type of riding, mud, snow, water crossing ftw

The kutters do pretty well in the mud, the fronts actually clean out well because of the bigger goods, very good tire imo

Thanks for the info, seems not many people are running the KLAWS. I'm going to order the 22" Kutters next week.
