WTB Wolverine AM TCS Tubeless Tire

DESCRIPTION

Like its Wolverine siblings, the WTB Wolverine AM TCS tire is a sure-footed gripper in most conditions. Its angular, staggered knobs are sure to bite when you want them to. Center knobs use a lower profile design for reduced tread squirm when you're upright and truckin? along at speed. This ensures a fast-rolling tire. When conditions get dicey and you lay the tire over into a loose corner, the progressively taller transition and shoulder knobs dig in, getting you around the bend without fail.The AM TCS designation means that this tire is like Wolverine -- he's a blend of man and metal. This AM TCS Wolverine is a blend of the lightweight 60tpi Race casing and the superior sealing UST bead. You'll get the best of both worlds. Of course, you can run this tire with a tube, but you'll realize the most benefit when you install it tubeless and use liquid sealant to safeguard against punctures. It also features Inner Peace, a narrow strip of nylon inside the casing that does two things -- for tubeless applications, it stiffens the sidewalls and when you use tubes it reduces the chance of pinch flats.The Wolverine AM TCS tire is available in 26 x 2.2". Its GMS dimensions are 54/52. It features a UST approved aramid corded bead. The fast rolling DNA rubber compound has a 60a durometer and is known for its performance and durability.

Strength:

Grips well in dry, compacted conditions. Doesn't bleed air. Mates very well to UST wheels. Good cornering grip.

Weakness:

Middle tread disappears faster than your paycheck at Whole Foods. Horrible tread life! $60 tire lasted 15 rides. That is completely unacceptable. Very heavy tire.

I used this tire as a rear along with a Weirwolf up front. Rear traction was good in compacted soil, but lost grip in loose dirt, especially when climbing. I am 205 lbs and 6'-2". The sidewalls felt plenty stiff. Cornering felt good. The only thing that this tire didn't do was grip on loose dirt and last long. Due to this and its weight I wont be buying it again.
