 Great tire for loose/mud. It does not wash out. I first rode it for a week in super silty conditions and it just at it up. I wouldn't recommend them for hardpack though, just on account of the added rolling resistance. Let it be known that these tires aren't for those who are super weight conscious.

 I have been using WTB Timberwolf tires for 2 years now, and I can say without a doubt they are the best tires out there, for any riding style or conditions. I have used several other tires including Nevegals and there is just no comparison. These tires have a Motocross style tread which makes them stick and climb just about any surface imaginable, rocks, roots, they eat it up. They stick like flypaper while cornering from there large outer sidewall treads. The best part is they are not front or rear specific nor due they have a specific rotation, they have no nonsense repeating, mirrored tread that digs like a shovel. The tread knobs protrude over a 1/4 inch out from the tire, and their spacing allows for even better traction. I have used the same set for a season (150 miles) and the treads are still near mint, so they hold up very well to rock abuse, no tread knobs missing or chunked out, unlike other comparable tires. Amazing, Amazing tires, I can not say enough good things about them. Do not hesitate to buy a set. WTB knows there stuff, I pray they never stop producing this tire.

 i trashed a pair of t wolves pretty quik last summer. the soft compound doesn't do well with hard braking on tough dry dirt and rock. but get these puppy's in some loose dirt or mud and they hook up like nobody's business. definitely my winter tire of choice.

 This tire is by far the best tire I have ever used. The traction is amazing, whether going up or down a steep hill, on all types of terrian and even punches very well through sand. People say the knobs bend and are weak. Bull crap! Inflate the tire to the recommended 35psi and you wont have any problems. The tire also seems to last forever, it wears down very slowly.

 Not the best on wood, but as a front tire it's pretty amazing. I ride in the Pacific NorthWET and trails get pretty sloppy around here. This tire keeps me dialed in. I like to run a 2.3 Nokian Gazzalodi Jr. in the rear with a 2.5 timberwolf in the front in the winter/wet season and feel that I have nearly as much traction, grip, security in the mud/rock sections as I do in the spring/summer.

Will also note this tire grips pretty damn well when curving very loose sandy berms East of here.

WTB Timberwolf (MSRP $60) — The Timberwolf features a deep, moto-inspired tread that is well-suited for steep, loose and moist conditions. Its big, square-block knobs pierce loose and sloppy terrain to provide optimal traction. Boasting powerful braking and climbing characteristics, these dual-directional tires provide instant go-big confidence and authoritative cornering ability.
