    Bought the 2.3" for a front tire after hearing some people raving about it and complaining that it was discontinued. I upgraded from a 2.1" but this is a much bigger tire, and I actually noticed how much harder it was to get good brake force out of my mechanical disc brakes before I adjusted them. On loose, soft or sandy trails this tire will do everything you want but in dry dusty conditions it can get a little squirrelly, and you'll be dropping the pressure to as low as you feel comfortable with. If you ride where the trails are usually bone dry I would look at a different option, but if you ride loose trails or damp conditions very often you'll love it. Durability is good,they plow straight through any rock garden you meet, and the tread wear has been minimal.

        Comments about WTB Prowler MX Race Folding Tire:

        Great tire but only lasted me for about 400 miles. The grip is great and they roll pretty quick. These tires look good but just wear out way faster then anything I have rode on before. After 400 miles (just over a year of riding right now) these tires are coming apart. Got a flat and when changing it I found 5 side lugs off both tire and almost off of them are separating, the armor rim guard is letting go of the rubber and rolling up under the rim when re-inflating, and the tread depth is minimal remaining for only 400 miles.

        All and all this was a good tire while it lasted but it didn't last as long as I thought it should.

        Comments about WTB Prowler MX Race Folding Tire:

        Used only on the rear. Durable & wears? My wife skids, a LOT! (sinner). She wore one out in 1/2 season (30 ish rides). Mine lasted full. Even worn,(hers looks like a semislick now) the rubber grips surprisingly well (except in real loose sandy soil). New, wow everywhere. Personally would like about 1-2mm more tread on centre, for more bite on loose climbs! But that may affect the surprisingly smooth roll for such an open tread. I have recommended these, as my top choice to several people, and I've run about 5 different treads on the rear in the last 2 years. Hey WTB! Bring it out in TCS format. Mine is currently tubeless (not recommended by WTB). Yeah I really like this tire!

        Comments about WTB Prowler MX Race Folding Tire:

        Ran a set for about two months. Only lasted around 150 trail miles before the rear was shot.

        Tread is fairly low profile and the rubber is sticky. They are light, fast and grippy when you first put them on - just don't expect them to last long.

        I've switched back to Kenda Nevegals which I find have better traction and wear at the expense of a little speed.

        Excellent tire for the money

          Best Uses

          • Hard Pack
          • Loose Dirt

          Comments about WTB Prowler MX Race Folding Tire:

          Replaced my well-worn Kenda Nevegal tires with these, and was pleasantly surprised. Strong performance on the curves, and the aggressive tread held up well in the loose stuff. My Nevegal's lost a few outside tread "knobbies" on sharp rocks. So far, the Prowler's seem to be holding up well. Time will tell, but very happy with these tires thus far.

          i would say this is one of the good tires but no best but it does the job. i have the 2.3 front and back its pretty fat for 2.3 than my friends maxxis ignitor. the only thing i dont really like is when going uphill on a loose dirt the traction arent that good but its all good i can keep up with it. overall good tires!

          LIke the way these tires grab and just about any surface. Wet rocks and roots traction is just ok but there are not may tire at this price that do. They corner well too. They do wear down quick but that is the trade off for good traction. I bought 2 more sets after riding 2 months. I will buy them again and recommend them to anyone looking for a good all around mountain biking tire for not too much $$$.

          • Spring And Fall Xc

          Comments about WTB Prowler MX Race Folding Tire:

          I got these as wet weather tires. They've filled that need very well. Good traction in the damp conditions normal in the fall and spring, without much (any?) extra rolling resistance.

          Sealed up tubeless very well, and rolled very fast and quiet tubeless. With tubes, they don't seem to roll quite as fast, and they buzzed on pavement.

          The 2.1s came in narrow for a 2.1, compared to the other tires I have.
