Strength:

Not a bad training or commuting tire. Low rolling resistance, descent grip. Inexpensive.

Weakness:

1200 miles and my rear is gone. Got flats the last three rides. After 500 miles the red and black rubber looked like it was going to come apart. Lots of cuts in the tread.

These tires are not Bad but not all that great either. If you get them really inexpensive then they are okay for a while. I expect more miles out of them and I never felt perfectly comfortable on fast descents. You get what you pay for and my old Michelins still ride better give better feel and last quite a bit longer.

Strength:

Cheap,unlimited thread life,high tolerance for abusing,minimum flat,9 bar pressure can be pumped up!THUMBS UP!

Weakness:

WTB is not that famous for road racing but it worth my respect after compared to other tires which cost x2 =)

I had used this pair of tires and were abusing it(hitting potholes all the time).The grip was well but not the best.In rainy situasions when racing I need not worry about it at all.After a pair of them used for about 3000miles the thread life were marvelous and the flat were around 4 times in a year use!!!Finally yesterday my front tire's side wall broke out.I would rate 5 star for this and willing to buy again.

Strength:

Tough casing. Long wear life. Roll decently enough to hold the wheel of your local pros if you can muster the HP. Can run up to 130psi.

Weakness:

Not the smoothest ride of the bunch. The name might deter some people.

WTB on a road bike is a faux pas in some circles, but it shouldn't be. These roll decently and are tough tires. I have ridden on them for a year now with 0 flats. They are not as supple of a ride as some other tires that I have tried, but are also quite a bit less expensive. If you want a great ride, get a Vredestien Fortezza. If you want a fast tire the Race Lites are great. If you want a do everything tire that will hold up to mileage, not leave you stranded and leave enough money in your wallet for a power bar or two, the WTB might do the trick.
Value gets a 5 because they are worth every penny.
Overall gets a 4 because they could be a touch more supple.

Similar Products Used:

Hutchinson Top Speeds - Wear out way to quickly.
Vredestein Fortezza tri-comp - smoothest ride I ever had.
Bontrager Race Lite Silica - Fast sticky wears quick (race only).
Michelin Carbons - unimpressive until you realize that you have 2500 miles on them and they are still going strong.
Vittoria Rubino Pro - Did nothing especially well or badly. Might be a good thing?
