    Just got this new tire. If anyone is interested it's a little heavier.

    Web site says 800g, scale says 954g... tread looks nice though

    Anyone know the weight of the 2010 weirwolf am in 2.3 ust?

    And the lime green/gray in cursive looks worse than an Ardent.

    Side walls feel strong

    So, WTB comes out with another version of the Weirwolf that they say is compatable with tubeless systems. I can't help but think that this is nothing but marketing for them.
    I've used a number of their tires with homemade brew without any problems. Even the seepage through the sidewalls has never been a problem.

    Am I missing something here, or is this just a way that WTB can say that they now have a tire that can be used tubeless with their blessing?

    Got these because the new tread and rubber seems to have good support. It better for $50

    My dhf minions like to slide a little on some turns before they hook. It's a tall order, but if I can get rid of the slide in that part of the lean then I might have a new favorite.

    Never used another WTB tire.. except for a vraptor back in the day, and the tread on the old Weirwolfs don't look like anything special to me.

    There's a huge thread over in the 29er section called "Best Tubeless Brew". I'm using his basic mix.

    Basically it's:

    1 part Latex mold builder (I get mine at Michael's)
    1 part Slime (I use the ATV/Mower type with the black granules in it.)
    2 parts Water

    A lot of the recipes call for Anti-freeze as an extender to keep the brew from drying out. Since I live in Michigan I don't have the drying out problem that riders in hotter regions have.
    I've run this for a year now without any problems.

    I just checked into the new WW more and really like the new tread pattern. It looks like they cut down the outside row of knobs from five to three.
    They also stepped the knobs for better grip. Now if they can make this available in 29er sizes!

    That is pretty heavy. I have run the Stout, Prowler, and Mutano 2.2-2.3 tires tubeless. All of them were 800-900g. At 924g that is UST tubeless territory, heck even a bit heavy for that in a 2.3 size.

    It is a little heavy. And the side knobs seem really soft when I push on em. I want to find out the actual weight of the UST version.

    On these, the extra weight comes from the sidewall. It's seems like there's a stiff insert supporting the side knobs. When I unfolded the tire and flipped it right side out, it made a weird, almost cracking noise.

    I recently converted a set of Wolverine's (non-TCS) on Mavic 717's without much fuss. For the extra 140g per tire weight gain with the TCS version, I'm not sure what the point is.

    954g is pushing it a little, kind of bummed about the extra 154g's that shouldn't be there.

    How much do you and your bike weigh?
