Strength:

Bling Bling on the front defines my favorite bike and the bike I choose first. Fast rolling with stiff edge blocks.

Weakness:

Every other tire I try is worse. So I wreck a lot trying to find something better. This tire will end your search for a good front tire.

Buy this tire for the front if you can stand the weight and go around corners.

For the back if you want something rounder buy something else. I run pythons,earls, larsen tt, vertical pro, holy roller, or yellow kirin in back.

Strength:

Strong and fat, great for dusty dry trails. Confident cushioning for jumping...

Weakness:

Dodgy on wet mud, central knobbles slow the bike down a bit

Great tire for dry, sandy conditions. Grips like snot on a hanky! Just don't take them where the conditions get sloppy!

Strength:

Looks the part. Awesome cornering. Great grip on dirt tracks.

Weakness:

Rubbish in wet deep mud...Wheelspin like f**k. If you go on the roads with them the tread runs down super fast.

Good Overall. Looks Tread fast on roads. Crap on wet mud. Good cornering for DH riders. If you like wet mud then don't buy these.

GRIP! Large volume. Looks good. Crazily Sticky.

Weakness:

prolly wear fast.

This tire sticks like hell. U can really hear it. Its like the sound of a vans shoe. Its cushy and comfy and takes hits. Not to mantion ultra cheap. I hav the 60A compound so i guess it won really wear as fast but still sticky as hell! Buy it!! Its cheap too ^^

Strength:

Snot to a hanky is an apt description. These are the best Moab tires I've used so far. Low center knobs lessen the rolling resistance, and the larger side knobs help get thru the sand. The 42 durometer compound allows you to climb or descend an almost verticle surface. They stick so well they probably save me from sliding into several nasty situations. Those familiar with the Toilet Bowl should try it with these tires.

Weakness:

Not the best choice for muddy conditions. Even though the knobs are widely spaced the rubber compound seems to hold mud moreso than a harder compound.

Buy this tire. Put it on your new Quasi. Go to Moab!

Strength:

When at High Pressure it rolls super smooth. Very Good grip on off road. when fully inflated, it looks as big as my Highroller 2.5.

Weakness:

SUPER TACKY!!!! I use this tires from my street rigs to my downhill rigs. Wears off to fast.

Good tires, affordable, valued for money. Different sizes would be a plus point though.. what a waste... But non the less.. If you are in the market to get new tires you might wanna try these blings on for 'size'. You wont regret 'em.

Cheers..
