So I have Kenda Nevegals and have gotten many flat tires with my setup. I attribute this to weak/thin tires. Can anyone give me a reccomendation on a stronger tire? I do not care about weight.

Thanks,

Steve

How are you flatting? The Nevegal is not particularly thin or weak, and "strong" tires do not necessarily reduce flats. Neither do tubeless setups

IMO it's just a good year for multiflora roses and blackberry bushes. They must like the heat or something. Every time I ride it seems like I have a flat to fix when I get home.

I'd have to concur with Shiggy, the Nev is a pretty darn "strong/thick" tyre. As asked, how are you flatting, are you getting thorns or pinch flatting? If it's thorns, then tubeless would be the way to go, if it's pinch flats, then tubeless would maybe help but you still have to watch how low yor pressures are with that too. If you want uber stoute/thick then check out the WTB Stout and for more the Dissent.
