    Wolverine 2.2 or Weirwolf 2.55 LT for front tire ?

    I have two of these 2 tires but one has to be given to a freind. They seem to have the same case volume but the 2.55 Lt's tread is a smidge wider (small for a 2.55). Any opinions as to which would make for a better front tire ? Thanks.

    Really like the WW LT, but if the volume is almost the same for the casing, then I'd go for the Wolverine since the tread looks to be more aggressive than on the WW, especially on the side knobs. Now if yo were talking about the new WW, then different story, but we all know they're not available yet.

    If you have a rigid, I'd keep the WeirWolf. If you have front suspension, keep the Wolverine.

    Having both, I would concur

    Reba U-turn set @ 90mm of travel. The Wolverine does have a more agressive pattern .I didn't think the Wolverine would have so much volume and the WW Lt would have such short tread.

    Keep the Wolverine and call it good. Too much analysis......

    I'd be riding and trying them myself instead of getting opinions off others with unknown experience, different setups and trail conditions.
