Am using them predominantly on-road, but should be at least as good as my old Dunlop Turanzas (which were fine) off-road.Have strengthened side walls, so should be good for both towing and air down. Am looking forward to the snow in August!

Luv 'em.

Love them. But might be changing to H/T-S next since the Foz will be spending its life 95% in the city.

What Tyre Brand are you on?----------------Bridgestone H/L
What Size are they?-------------------------205/65/15
What type are they - wet/dry----------------Both
Are they grippy or not?-----------------------Grippy
Are they noisy or quiet?----------------------Quiet
Are they good for offroad or just onroad use?--They do well in mild offroad
What Life span are you getting out of them?---I do not know, I only bought the car in the last 9 months and have driven 15,000 km's. They do need changing
Do you like them or not really?-----------------They are ok. I would like bigger tyres.
I am looking at either Bridgestone 694's or Perilli Scorpions. Preferably 215 or 225 / 65 - 70 / R15's. I need to speak to a tyre expert. Bridgestones are Good and my Inlaws swear by Perilli's. They may be more expensive but they have found they last longer.

What Tyre Brand are you on? Sumitomo
What Size are they? 205/60/16
What type are they - wet/dry Both
Are they grippy or not? Not bad
Are they noisy or quiet? Pretty quiet
Are they good for offroad or just onroad use? Good in the sand but really only a street tyre.
What Life span are you getting out of them? Hard to say but no signs of wear after 3k ish
Do you like them or not really? Probably go for something stronger next time but no real problems. I just fitted my new Dobinson springs & newer struts in and took the car for a thrash around an industrial area in the wet and considering the wheels are all over the place we had some nice controlled slides & drifts, the new computer is great lol.

What Tyre Brand are you on? Toyo OPHT
What Size are they?
215/60/16
What type are they -
Highway Terrain LT construction
Are they grippy or not?
Not bad
Are they noisy or quiet?
Pretty quiet
Are they good for offroad or just onroad use?
Good in the sand and dirt, but really only a street tyre.
What Life span are you getting out of them? So far I've covered about 50,000km of highway, dirt, rock and sand driving. I think i should get another 10,000km from them.
Do you like them or not really?
I really like them yes. They have never had a puncture (touch wood) even out on the punishing roads in the Flinders Ranges.
Would I buy them again? Probably not, only because I want an All Terrain Tyre, so I'll probably go with the Yokohama AT/S.
