Question Need mega durable rear tires?

Just spent the last hour reading former threads. Looking for updated and specific guidance. I have a multiday ride next weekend and need an extremely durable tire. I just went out to check over the XX and found a flat rear stocker and a low front stocker. They had been holding air fine. I am confident that I heard when they were damaged last ride. A pretty good rock clunk that I noticed. Sure enough it did damage.

I ride extremely rocky terrain at high speed.

I don't care about mud performance. I need long tread life and extreme flat resistance. After reading all the other threads I'm thinking I may have pinched the sidewall instead of a surface puncture.

I would like to stay at 22" but will do 20" if it guarantees better durability. For reference, I have went through a fourth of the stock tires tread in four days of riding. Holy shit right!

So it looks like my choices are:
22" Kutters
22" Razr
20" Razr 2's
20" Xrecs

Just came across these. http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...sw=false&cs=22
Can get them in a 22x8 rear on a 10 rim

Anyone run these?

I ran 20x11x10 Kenda Bearklaws XCR . There a Kenda 6 ply tyre which I have found to be stronger than other 6 ply tyres. I am using them next weekend in an 8 hr enduro.

I saw the Bearclaws and they look aggressive. Very open tread pattern though. Not sure if that wouldn't just increase face puncture opportunity. I think they had a 22" as well. It seems more of a mud tire in design upon second viewing.

Sorry buddy, I meant the Kenda Klaw XCR 20x11x10 not the Bearklaw. You are right the bearklaw is more of a mud tyre.

I have a set of Razr 2's. They are tough, much more durable than the orignal razr's I ran on my past sport quads. In fact, for my area, they are just too much. I usually run my stock tires because the Razr 2's grip too good. I haven't had to plug them yet, and I would expect them to have longer tread life than the standards.

So we have a site sponsor - Discount Tire
Do they only sell GBC brand? I have been on there site and thats all it will bring up. Why would they only carry one brand? I would like to support them as a sponsor, but have decided to go Kenda Kutter most likely. Disappointing!

Just made the purchase on RMATV. Bought the Kenda Kutter front & rear. 22" all the way around. Gonna put them on my stock rims. Hope they work out well.
Thanks for the input everyone!
