Strength:

Cheap, black, have a tread.

Weakness:

Lumpiest tire ever,. Won't seat themselves and run round. Chain reaction cycles tried and so did I. I'm not going to overinflate them - tried that with a pair of shwalbe studded tires a few years ago. The worst tires I've ever come across. They both exploded off the rims while I was holding them after many many attempts to get them to seat properly. My hearing was destroyed and now I have to wear hearing aids. True story. BTW I'm a bike shop owner. There are so many other brands good tires on the market.

Strength:

Got this tire straight when I purchase my full bike (Polygon Xtrada 6). I use my bike mostly on asphalt, and very rarely on off-road tracks. Overall quite satisfied with the tire for my riding type.

Weakness:

Very poor when climbing on wet asphalt/pavement/concrete, especially the rear tire...almost no grip at all.

It's probably designed to conquer off road or technical tracks. It's okay for daily, but NOT for climbing on wet asphalt/pavement/concrete.

Strength:

I think they'll probably wear well

Weakness:

Dangerous in the wet

I suspect these work well in dry US conditions. They don't in UK mud. Since fitting to my front wheel, I've had several falls this winter, slidng sideways. Now taken off bike to keep for dry summer conditions only - shan't buy again!

Strength:

As front tire

Weakness:

As rear tire

Found it good in front and bad traction because of the same reason : the thread pattern being straight line.

I use Nobby Nic as rear tire , better traction.

Strength:

Allrounder: at least some grip in any conditions, suitable for jumping and touring with heavu gear - it's extremely hard to make a snakebite on them. Suprisingly good for off-road&mud touring at medium pressure - they really get well through mud and sand. These tires are sort of "lazy" - if you block the front wheel during hard-braking at the wet pavement, the tire starts bumping instead of just slipping aside - there is a second to release the brake. Rather hard to puncture.

Weakness:

Rolling resistance is pretty high under a heavy rider (>90 kilos) or under a rider with a heavy luggage pack on the bike due to contact between the road and the latheral knobs even at maximum pressure. Virtually no grip at any wet&hard surface, especially during cornering. The middle flat knobs tend to tear off at high pressure (rear wheel only).

Good almost for everything except asphalt and pavement. Good for off-road touring and XC, but I hate? commuting on them.
