    Strength:

    Cheaper than you would expect
    Look Good
    Work quite well on loose stuff

    Weakness:

    none at the moment

    I went for these tires after I wore out the Tioga's because the tioga tires were after a while really breaking down fast. Once the first few nob's came of, the rest quickly followed suit. So far I've had no problems with this happening with these tires.

    I have however had a little trouble with them when it comes to gripping/cornering on roads, but I'm willing to deal with that since they work so well offroad.

    Strength:

    its great for the the ever wet mogs that never dry out. not only the soup like stuff, but the tacky-stick-to-your-tires clay that is found anywhere their building houses or have taken the top soil. i have taken these tires everywhere. local trails, farm hopping out at home, terrorizing a nieghborhood, running around town, even repeated times on beaches and georgia marsh. heck ive raced on these things.

    Weakness:

    wear kind of quick, but with the kind of rideing i do, which kind wouldnt.

    great tires for the money, perfect for the go anywhere do anything kind of rider. wheither its a race, urban assualt, or spending the day on the trails and farm. if you are a pro racer, well, there are better tires for raceing.
