Strengths:    the wire bead

Weaknesses:    not being able to get said wire beaded tire off of my rim to change the tube

Bottom Line:   
If anybody has some advice on how to go about replacing a tube in this tire please let me know. I'm not a die-hard biker but feel like tube replacement is within my knowledge base...struggling.

Strengths:    Good grip, durable. Well designed tread

Bottom Line:   
One of the thing tire manufactures tend to not worry about is changing tires. It’s a real pain when you have a flat, and need to pop the bead off the rim and can’t do it without a lever. When I installed these tires, I had to use a lever to pry off old worn stretched out tires. When I put these Gators on (brand new and un-stretched) they went on like a breeze. Serfas nailed the bead size. It was a great first impression. I have not ridden them enough to really test the traction, but they gripped up well in my “trial” section on my commute. (I commute on my mtn. bike)

Strengths:    Good Tread Design works well in mud.

Weaknesses:    Wire bead breaks easily and quickly.

Bottom Line:   
When they work their great but the bead snaped during a ride with no warning luckily I was close in and didn't have to hike that far. If the bead hadn't snapped these are 5 chilies, but because it snapped its 2.

Strengths:    Good grip, price and pucture resistance

Weaknesses:    Only comes in max 2.1

Bottom Line:   
I went tubeless so I can't use them anymore. I put them on my back up bike which is a HT Giant. For the year I used them I never once got a flat, even on thorn infested So Cal trails. The wear is amazing! I om only a weekend warrior and atleast one ride during the week religeously. The rear really digs on the ups. If they came out with a tubeless version i would defineately buy.
