Strengths:    Nice fast but meaty enough tread pattern.

Weaknesses:    Thin sidewalls, once you get it on a rim it's nearly impossible to get off. NOT a 2.5

Bottom Line:   
I had high hopes for these to be fat, fast rolling but biting tires. They do roll and bite well, but they aren't that fat. The sidewalls are too thin if you ride around rocks at all- I've had flat after flat running more than my usual pressure. These tires replaced some Exiwolf tires and I prefer the Exiwolf, they had a better profile, stronger, and I could actually get them off my rims (WTB Laserdisc).

Strengths:    great tread design. nice rubber. good overall quality. TCS

Weaknesses:    this tire is NOT a 2.5 tire. It is at BEST a 2.3 tire. major mounting difficulties, depending on rim

Bottom Line:   
This tire is noticeably smaller than my Exiwolf 2.3 I'm replacing, but rated as 2.5. This tire is going back for a true 2.5. Mounting on a Bontrager Duster 29" is virtually impossible. Expected more from what should be a premium tire.

WTB Weirwolf TCS Failures?

I normally wouldn't make a post like this but I was wndering if anyone else has had issues with the 2.1 TCS Weirwolf tires. 2 months ago my rear tire started bulging out where the bead enters the rim, almost like what you see when the sidewall fails on a radial tire. I thought it weird the tire ... Read More »

Weirwolf 2.1 TCS 120 TPI casing XC . .What the hell are you?!

OK.... I've been out of this for a minute so help an old man out. I bought and ran Weirwolf UST tires on my 26 inch wheels.(on Mavic Crossmax)..Bought them in 2009 or so. Love, love , love these tires, (even though I had to pump them before every ride) They seem worn out now so I looked to r ... Read More »

WTB TCS Weirwolf wont mount on Bonty TLR rim

Darn bead is just too tight. Can't get the second side mounted more than 3/4. Busticated 2 tire levers. I have tried soapy water, Vaseline, leaving it out in the sun.....nothing works. Every time I try and push up the last 1/4, it pops off somewhere else. And to make matters worse I can't ev ... Read More »

WTB TCS Weirwolf vs Bronson

I've been running 2.3 TCS Weirwolfs for a couple of years now and think they're awesome! Grip, roll fast, and not one flat. Fantastic tire 95% of the time. Issues I've had: [LIST=1] [*]Slow speed technical DH wash out's. At speed these tires never fail because I get into the corners hard. ... Read More »

WTB Weirwolf 2.5 TCS 29er tire - which rims are compatible?

I just bought a set of these and dinged a rim (American Classic MTB) trying to get one on. These things are crazy tight. I did manage to get it on a different rim (velocity blunt) and it was still crazy tight. The other odd thing was that a 2.2 Racing Ralph was a touch fatter than this 2.5 Weirwol ... Read More »
