Continental Race King for street trials?

Calling all you 26" street rollers out there. Anyone tried the Conti Race Kings, front or rear? I've tried the Cross Kings, but the edge knobs are too abrupt and don't hold odd ledges well. I'm currently running Maxxis Ikon rear and Michelin Pilot Slope front.  The Ikons are great, too expensive at the moment and the Slopes are very quick wearing and hard to find.

I found them a little too lightweight, I had to run pretty high pressures and it made the bike feel pretty harsh. I also tore a sidewall blasting a pumptrack berm. Grip was pretty average too.

Tread is terrible on the race kings, I found it Just breaks off after 1 or 2 rides. I have a couple of pairs of ikons to test out this year. But atm I’m currently running the schwalbe racing Ralph’s (tubeless) There great grip and decent weight around 600g.
