in a word......no

on a soft terrian tire, the lug will be huge, becuase to get traction in those conditions, you need penatration, to move lots of dirt, to make you go foward

hard terrian tire contact area is much more important. the more lug touching the ground and any givin time the better :thumbsup:

will a soft terrain tire get worn down much more quickly if you run it on rocks and hard terrain?

yes and the nobbies are huge. also they have a sticky compound that doesnt last and is just a softer compound of rubber.

I blew a Millville out in one ride on very hard and rocky terrain. I called Kenda to complain and the lady overnighted me a Carlsbad for free. I put it on and I swear it's the best rear tire I've ever used. It hooks up great on the tracks I ride and it lasts forever.

If you're switching from MX tracks to trails regularly, I'd try a Kenda Carlsbad.

No, it's for professionals only, your bike won't run a tire like that.
