Has anyone tried the Motoz Tractionator GPS tyres?
They are reversable between 50/50 or turn them around for mostly offroad use.
Apparently they perform exceptionally well and deliver superier mileage, according to most reviews. In excess of 20 000km are typical in mixed on/offroad use.

See this video review: jump to 3m18 to go directly to the Motoz section




I spoke to the importer who says their next shipment is due to arrive approx mid-November.

Keen to meet and ride.

I saw a post on FB yesterday that these tires are only now coming into the country.
I have seen that vid previously and he rates them highly.

Pricing is claimed to be comparable to the Mitas E07 RRP except that the E07 seems to be available from various dealers at somewhat below their RRP.

I can get an E07 front 90/90-21 for R975 while the Motoz Tractionator GPS same size was going for R1295 from the last shipment. Difference of R320.

Does anyone have an opinion on the Continental Conti Escape?

Sharwoods have the front for R584 which seems like a good deal.

I have the Continental TKC 70's and I'm quite happy with them, use them all round as a 50/50
These looks even more 50/50
Well priced too

Yes. Were you planning to drive down to PE for a tyre?
