    Wtb Exiwolf race tire

    Can anyone tell me how the Wtb race tires hold up for everyday trail riding? I have a chance to buy a set cheap, but am worried about the light weight casing. I wouldn't be racing them just riding the trails.

    Everyday riding where? I have a 2.3 Exiwolf (which I think they've quit making) on the front of my SS and it's held up pretty well. The only time it let me down was on some sharp rocks, where got cut all the way through. It's not a real rocky area tire, but works well in mix, hard pack, roots, etc. - and it wears well.

    I run Exiwolf 2.3 Race tires front/rear on my SS 29er, been holding up fine. No flats, cuts, etc. Exiwolfs are a fairly low tread tire, you might look at Wolverines if you want a more aggressive/durable tire. WTB has stopped offering the Exiwolf 2.3s, might be why we're seeing close out deals on them. Never tried the 2.1s, prefer larger volume tires.

    I liked the Exiwolf's performance on my local Northern California trails, but wasn't so pleased with how fast they wore. The tread knobs are rather thin and tear off really easily. I got barely a month out of a rear, and not much longer for the front tire.
