Strengths:    Extremely durable

Weaknesses:    EXTREMELY HEAVY

Bottom Line:   
I wish I would have compared these to other tube options before I ordered. I just bought them because they were cheap as hell, did not notice that they weigh over a pound each. They really put weight on the wheels, where weight matters the most.
