    Opinions about WTB EnduroRaptor tires?

    What opinions/experiences do you have about WTB Enduroraptor tires?
    How do they perform on:
    -Hard packed dirt
    -Pavement
    -Gravel
    -Mud

    The only two things I've seen is that they grab dirt to then throw it on your face and on your bike, and that they're extremely noisy on pavement, which doesn't allow me to achieve high speeds on pavement.

    Since they do say "WTB" and "Raptor" on the sidewalls, my mountain bike tyres are probably an earlier version. I picked mine up, in near-NOS condition, for $4 each at a yard sale, and since all of your observations are spot-on, I do not plan to buy any more of them, unless I find another great bargain. However, I do like them better than my old Specialized Ground Controls, which had extremely poor sidewall durability, even when maintained at full 65psi pressure.
