I have been riding wtb riddlers for 1,200 miles. I really like how these tires handled the gravel from Illinois to Michigan. After this month I will need to replace rear tire. I am currently open to any suggestions. 

Terravail cannonball 42c
using wtb riddlers again 45c
surly knard 41c
wtb resolute 42c

I just tried the cannonballs.  Loud and sluggish on pavement, sketchy traction on the gravel we have in Ohio.  I went back to resolutes, my favorite so far for all gravel conditions and pavement.

Resolutes are top notch, really fast but not much flat protection... so, good for a lot of courses but not those with major big gravel.

are the knards tubeless compatible?

According to Surly's web site, only two versions of the Knard are listed as tubeless compatible, and they're not the 650b or 700 x 41 versions.

I prefer the Resolutes over the Riddlers. Hard to comment as I don't know your specific riding conditions but the reasons I prefer the Resolutes over the Riddlers are:

Considerably lighter
Better traction if there's any mud or sand
Longer wearing (only slightly though)
Slightly better protection overall (bigger knobs)
Equally as good rolling resistance IMO
No toe overlap :-) I was getting a bit with the 45s

Since the Maxxis rambler 45 size is sold out I bought another riddler. Don’t fix something that worked for type gravel I ride.
