Strengths:    This is a really durable tire that rolls well on all terrain. It's also really easy to install. I have Stan's rims and installed with just a hand pump.

Weaknesses:    It is heavy, but it's great not to have to worry about my tires.

Bottom Line:   
I've ridden this tire on technical rocks, sand, mud and packed terrain and it worked well in all of it. I'm not going to win any races with these, but they just handle whatever I throw at them, which is more important to me.

Strengths:    Low rolling resistance. Grip in all conditions, really good in the Pacific Northwest roots. Cornering. Easy tubeless setup. 2.3 width is perfect for AM / XC riding. Durability. Tubeless feel money.

Weaknesses:    Not the greatest tire in mud. They do really good in medium wet, but cake up pretty easy in medium - heavy mud. In dry conditions knobs seem to give under heavy braking.

Bottom Line:   
I've got maybe 40 rides on these tires and really love them. The low rolling resistance is instantly noticeable, the grip on wet rood is good to great, and they corner very stable with grip and hardly any sidewall give. In heavy mud they do cake up, but not enough of a concern to change tire during the wettest months. In dry conditions knobs seem to give under heavy braking. Durability seems great so far with maybe 500+ off road miles, many fire road climbs and very little degradation in tread. I like!

Strengths:    Strong, grip like mountain goats, easy setup, sidewall traction

Weaknesses:    Slightly heavy, not cheap although not near as expensive compared to some other tubeless

Bottom Line:   
I have 50 miles on these now and can say they grip unlike any tire I have used before. They were super easy to set up tubeless on WTB TCS wheels with a floor pump. After 50 miles on the rocky hard surfaces here in AZ they show zero signs on wear which is more than I can say for other tires Ive used. The desert out here just eats tires but they hold up great and they greatly reduce vibration on the trail compared to tube setups. Overall I am very happy with these are will buy again.

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 »

Sun Ringle Charger Pro mated to WTB Bronson TCS 2.3s

I'm looking to upgrade my current wheelset on my Steel On-One 456 at the end of the month, and after doing a bunch of research I think this is the set up I'm going to go for. I was wondering if any one else has run this set up before, or had any experience with the wheelset or tires and could give m ... Read More »

Love/Hate Bronson TCS

When they're brand new, they work well. But they wear super quick and the side knobs tear off. They dont hold air very well when set up tubeless, and the torn off knobs leak fluid. Anyone else have these problems? Wondering if I should warranty them.Read More »

Bronson TCS, Wolverine UST, Weirwolf. Oh my!?

I'm currently using tubed Kenda Nevagals on Stan's Crest rims (lumpy...) and would like to try tubeless. Which of these tires do you guys recommend? Mostly hardpack, occasional rocks. roots, and some mud. I'd prefer the lighter of the three if WTB's weights are accurate. ('09 GT Force Carbo ... Read More »
