Great tire for the budget minded shopper that wants a reasonably fast tire (When run at the upper end of the pressure rating)

Size wise the 20(406)x1.5 mounts a little smaller than Schwalbe Marathon

They were easy to mount and i have been satisfied due to the low cost

I didn't know they made a 20 road tire. I run these on my cargo trailer and at 300 miles they still look new. They are very puncture resistant, I do have a very small hole somewhere as one tire goes flat over 4 to 5 days, but that's it for a couple of months now.

I have found that the Kenda K193 Kwest 20 inch Tire (406) to be the smoothest and easy rolling tire, of all the different tires, that I have used on my Tri-Cruiser in 26,000 miles. I use mostly on hard surface Rail to Trails and local streets. I will be getting 3,000 miles or more on the tires. I have experienced 3 flats, one where the side wall was scored by a sharp grate end that was exposed on a bridge crossing. One where a thorn cut several cords and the tire failed. One puncture that posed no future problems. It is the best tire buy I have found for my Tri-Cruiser.

A better rolling recumbent

This tire is mounted on the front of my 2004 Burley Canto. I replaced both tires and both tubes at the same time (a similar tire & tube on the 26 rear, only because all were over 7 years old). I noticed that the sidewalls appeared more robust than the old ones. To my surprise and delight, performance improvement was immediately noticeable, for far less effort greater acceleration and speed. I love my bike anew!

I own 2 long wheel base recumbents, 1 with two 20inch wheels and one with a 20inch and 16inch.i

In 2 years I had to replace 2 20inch tires and a 16inch due to bulges from internal cord separation.

I due not recommend inflating anywhere near the max rated pressure.

Perfect for Bike-E Rear

Looking to restore that Bike-E recumbent? This is the size you need for the rear wheel. White letter tires look better than the white or gumwall as they give it a more contemporary appearance. Rides well and smooth with good traction. I went with a size narrower than stock for a little more speed. Just as comfortable as before so good choice.

These are so bad. They have 20inch written on the packaging and the tire and even the kenda tubes, but they are definitely NOT 20 inches diameter. More like 18. Don't waste your time or money.

You are probably looking for an ISO 451 size tire, which is also labeled as a 20 inch tire. These are not the same size. Please call our customer service agents if you are not sure which size you are looking for and we can assist you.

This one came as stock on the front wheel of my new Sun recumbent. After less than a year, it developed an ominous bulge, which told me blow out was imminent. The 26 version on the rear did not do this. But neither are what I'd call particularly flat resistant or durable, both succumbed to the dreaded goat head several times.

I suggest you FIND the extra money for one of the Schwalbe Marathon variants...you'll save money AND trouble over the long run.

Because you did not have the marathon greengaurds I wanted at the time, you recommended the kwest tire temporarily. it only lasted 2 days before I got a flat.
