What Tyre Brand are you on? Yoko ATs
What Size are they? 215-65-16
Are they grippy or not? Great in all conditions
Are they noisy or quiet? Quiet, only hear them on rough bitumen, when you would hear a road tyre anyway.
Are they good for offroad or just onroad use? Great at both

What Life span are you getting out of them? Ive done 21K on them they would maybe be 1/3 wear with no rotation
Do you like them or not really? Love them, bit pricey though, for a small tyre

What Tyre Brand are you on? Maxxis Victra 510.
What Size are they? 225/55/17.
What type are they - wet/dry both.
Are they grippy or not? quite grippy in dry, haven't tried them in wet yet.
Are they noisy or quiet? Better than the geosquealers, not as good as the dunlops I had before.
Are they good for offroad or just onroad use? More on-road but will handle the gravel and fireroad runs towing the dirt bike or mountain bikes.

What Life span are you getting out of them? no idea, only done about 200km so far.
Do you like them or not really? so far so good.

I think these two are important to add too -
Cost? $200 even a corner - much cheaper than a cooper or dunlop in the same size.
Where from? Springwood Tyres Blue Mountains.
