I don’t condone the use of cheats, hacks, or mods in games that are free to play but with toca world, I can make an exception. This game deserves this and the developers deserve that this game is being littered with hackers since they basically are cheating on their players by using this predatory kind of tactic to milk players of their money. With this hack, the playing field is even and players can now be free to do whatever they want with the game and not have to spend any money on it. Or people can just switch to the plants vs zombies full game free.

Weakness:

It feels like cheating though.

Strength:

these are the tires to have!!!! if you ride either loam or mud then they are a valid purchase. these tires will litterally grip to anything due to them massive spikes.
these tires are not very weighty either despite what people say and they seem to be a heck of alot lighter than my specialized chunder summer tires ;)

Weakness:

rolling resistance but if your noticing it its probably time for a tyre switch anyway.
the price can be quite steep but check ebay for some amazing deals.

they are an amazing tyre choice for someone who likes to ride in the winter an not be all over the place. if anyone here says that they wear fast likr only getting two weekends then thats a load of bu**$^it i ride two and from the trails with them on (20 minuet cycle) and they still have the desired sharp edges needed to cut into the mud.
so if you antisipate some wet weather ahead and need some downhill tyres then look no further.

Strength:

Digs into soft soil and grass. Easier to mount on SUN Doublewide Rim for rear wheel. Good Rubber Spike Tips for traction.

Weakness:

Won't roll fast on flat pavement, go about normal speed or casual pace.

After my mobster tire wore out, this wetscream tire by MAXXIS was no problem mounting and applied the MAXXIS Downhill Innertube, went well on rim and put back on Banshee Morphine. Rolls pretty well and doesn't extend it's sidewalls like the mobster tire did. The mobster tire's sidewall expanded on a curve saying, You not gonna ride on me anymore, then gave out by the evening partially separating the valve on the innertube. I am more satisfied with the wetscream tire over the mobster tire and would definitely purchase the wetscream tire again because it proves to be a good tire to roll in mud, grass and dirt. I can still roll downhill on pavement faster than the other tire (mobster). I'm satisfied with it in a 26x2.5 width because there is more room than when I had the mobster tire in reference to clearance on both sides of the tire. The MAXXIS WetScream tire is a proven performer.

grip, grip, grip, and more grip thats what its all about !

Weakness:

rolling resistance.. but you won't do like me and use it in a cross country ride right ? and i could say heavy but its a DH tire is supposed to be... and its a bit expensive...

great tire for mud and wet conditions, rolled right trough some deep mud with no slip, climbs like a beast but its for DH... nothing will make this tire slip its insane I never thought I could roll trough what I did with this tire, cornering grip is amazing even when everyone else is sliping... but plz don't use it for hard pack or dry conditions its not gonna last... its more than excellent for what its supposed to do, to me its a no brainer...

Grip on hard-wet surfaces

I've bought a pair in june, and waited for a extremely muddy week end to try them.

So i had 2,7 SRY Minion DHF at the front.
Before the first run, it started to rain very heavy (pacific rain =P) for about 30min.. So I changed the front wheel (always keep 2 wheels with you, one with mud tire, one with nonmud tire).
I crashed 2 times in the first run, both on wet but hard surfaces.

Yesterday i tried them on a non muddy terrain, but very soft (i was the first to ride on this new trail). It grip like heeelllll !!!!!

I have to try Swampthing and michelin mud tires, but Black Turtle are better than Wetscream.

Strength:

CRAZY grip in mud and snow conditions

Weakness:

little on the narrow side of the claimed 2.2"

These things give you that extra edge you need in winter/muddy conditions, but I certainly wouldn't ride these things year round. While some have commented on the wieght of these, I really can't say that I've noticed it, like I said, I've been riding in winter conditions here so everything slows down considerably. These things HOOK UP on climbs and RAIL corners, especially over snow or mud; I'm actually surprised how fast they are having just come off of my summer Nevegal set-up. These things are worth having in your quiver for special conditions and at $5 each, you can't go wrong!
