Strength:

A good all-round tyre for fatbike purposes. Ideally mounted to the clown shoe 100mm rim. Light for its size, long wearing, impressive to onlookers ;)

Weakness:

Will spin up if pushed in snow or mud. Relies on its size more than the grip.

As OEM equipment on the Surly Moonlander, the Larry's tend to serve its intended purpose: a general all purpose tyre that can be ridden on tarmac, dirt, mud and snow. Its quite proficient on beach sand which is its ideal environment. If your after a tyre that can do anything, then the Larry is a good choice.

Surly Lou and Bud. Better tyres if your after traction and a dirt bike look..

Strength:

Snow, sand, loose gravel and other soft surfaces

Weakness:

Not all bikes will fit them, they tend to wash out on some slippery surfaces, they are terrible in mud.

I bought these for riding on snow, and they are excellent for riding on snow and sand. They have few knobs, so they do not dig in very far and so they sometimes wash out on loose surfaces. They are reasonably light for such huge tires.
I have used these on large marge, rolling darryl and clown shoe rims, and I would say that they are too wide for the large marge rims. They have great flotation on clown shoe rims, and this is the configuration that i would endorse.
