hi, i have done 200miles on my speed kings and they are already wearing away and losing traction. I ride about 50/50 on road and off. Is this normal for this tyre or am i doing something wrong?

    Something wrong I'd say. I'd expect 10 times that at least.

    They do have plenty of life left in them, and they grip well, but noticeably less. THey're just not very consistant i would say.
