    Weirwolf/Stout/Rampage 29" specs on 35mm & 24mm rims

    Since I just received new samples of the WTB Weirwolf 2.55 LT, WTB Stout 2.3 and Panaracer 2.35 tires, and a set of Salsa Gordo rims I took the opportunity to measure and compare the tire differences on wide and narrower rims. My control rim is an Alex Adventurer (24mm wide outside. 6mm deep from bead seat to rim outer edge). The Gordo is 35mm wide and 5mm deep. Used my usual measuring methods, and subtracted 1mm from the tire casing height for the Gordo measurements to even out the rim depth difference.

    Panaracer Rampage 29 x 2.35 (actual weights 752g & 783g)
    Rim: Alex 24mm / Gordo 35mm
    Tread width: 60.1 / 60.7mm
    Casing width: 55.2 / 59.0
    Casing height: 51.6 / 51.9
    Volume index: 28.5 / 30.6

    Weirwolf 29 x 2.55 58/55 (actual weights 756g & 793g)
    Rim: Alex 24mm / Gordo 35mm
    Tread width: 58.1 / 57.3mm
    Casing width: 58.1 / 60.7
    Casing height: 53.7 / 55.0
    Volume index: 31.2 / 32.8

    Stout 29 x 2.3 55/60 (actual weights 898g & 914g)
    Rim: Alex 24mm / Gordo 35mm
    Tread width: 59.5 / 60.7mm
    Casing width: 53.8 / 57.9
    Casing height: 51.4 / 53.2
    Volume index: 27.2 / 30.2

    I did a similar comparison with 26" tires of different widths some years ago.

    Will we see these updates on MtbTires.com?

    Serious inquiry, not trying to be an @#$%. Status on the site updates would be nice for those of us that got addicted to it years back. Thanks.

    I got a weirwolf lt about 1.5 years ago and I remember it weighing a lot more. Has WTB changed something to make them lighter?
