Jared Mendham: I'm Jared from Tyre Review
, and we're here on the west coast of Tasmania for the Tyre Review Winter Adventure
. I'm with Leeson, who has been driving in the 200 series on the Falken Wildpeak M/T
this whole weekend. Leeson, could you describe some of the tracks that we've been driving on.
Leeson Moulton: We've had everything on the tracks we've been driving, Mount Huxley. We went Montezuma Falls. Yesterday, we did Climies Track and here we are today on Henty Dunes. They've had everything. They've had mud, rock, granite, and the sand here. It's been, yeah, some hectic trails.
Jared Mendham: Yeah, cool. So on mud, how do you feel that went?
Leeson Moulton: I was really impressed in the mud. I didn't get stuck at all. Yeah, super impressed.
Jared Mendham: And on the rock?
Leeson Moulton: The rock, I felt really comfortable on the rock. Yeah, I was actually surprised at how little [inaudible 00:01:29] we had on the rock. We just crawled up everything at point shoot.
Jared Mendham: And a bit of fun in the sand?
Leeson Moulton: Lots of fun in the sand. I'm looking forward to a little bit more fun actually.
Jared Mendham: Cool.
Leeson Moulton: Yeah.
Jared Mendham: How'd it handle on the road?
Leeson Moulton: Really surprised. It's the first time I've actually driven on mud terrains on the road. I was expecting that mud terrain hell, but they're really quiet and confident because we were up to speed 100/110 on some wet roads, and they felt really good.
Jared Mendham: Cool. So, overall impression of the tyres?
Leeson Moulton: I'd definitely buy them, yeah.
Jared Mendham: Yeah.
Leeson Moulton: Fantastic.
Jared Mendham: Awesome. Cool.
Leeson Moulton: Cool. Thank you.
Jared Mendham: Thanks for coming along, Leeson.
Leeson Moulton: Thank you.
Jared Mendham: Cheers.
