I've never seen anything like that.  I assume just the one knob chunked.  I would replace it to be safe but I'm not sure whether or not that's urgent if its only one knob.  What tire is it so i know not to buy it  ;)

Kenda trackmaster IIs. I mean that is after almost 4000 miles. Its weird how every other knob set was worn all the way down. The set of threes were worn down to about that. Thats only one that got that bad but all other of the 3knobs are worn down that much. I do ride on pavement probably a majority to but idk I'd say they help up good for a while. All spring and summer

Probably hit the brakes just right and the knob grabbed enough to tear off.

I think you might benefit from a more street orientated tire.  All the little "hairs" or whatever they are called from the molding process are still there on the side lugs, so those lugs have seen almost no use, even after 4000 miles.  Even though it is a dual sport tire, it might be better if you switched to a more street oriented one.

Your bike is now ready to sell on craigslist.

And five minutes later I'm still laughing at this!

No actually there is a new product the tire companies are coming out with, it looks similar, they are going to reduce the number of lugs on the tire because the weight zelots have told them they would be the next world champion if they could reduce the weight of their tires!!!!!!!!!!!lol

I'm just going to get new tires. I did a decent amount a dirt riding and I did really like the tires. I'd say that's pretty good for 4000 miles out of the decently cheap kenda trackmaster IIs I mean if anyone else knows of any good dual sport tire that has good traction like that off road and still no problems on road let me know I need to change them no matter what this winter

I've got a set of those with studs in them.  The tires are cheap, but honestly i'm not a big fan of them.  I might even stud up a 606/MT21 for this winter and pass the Trackmasters along to someone else.
