Tire Expires

I swore to myself I wasn't going to second guess myself on this; Conti Race Kings are great tires. Roll super fast, tough, good on rocks, decent in the wet. Loose and loamy, not so much.

Well I guess I pushed the limits of their longevity.
Just riding along and my front end washes out in soft but close to perfect conditions.
Okay, I'll just take is easy. Only problem with that is Race Kings work best when going fast. Within 3/4th of a mile I'm laying next to my bike on the side of the trail. This would be fine if we were having a romantic picnic, but I forgot to pack a basket and blanket.

So I have no choice but to swap tires.
Ignitors, Crossmarks, or a comb pack?
