Question Tire Poll

I haven't been able to find one using the search engine... but what about a Poll to see what is the best tire, maybe three different polls, full road tyre/road and trail/full off road.

Make it easy for us newbies to instantly see what is generally used without trolling through thousands of 'Yet Another Tire Thread'

I'd start one but as i'm new to the strom I have no idea what tires anyone's using...

Just a thought...
