You'll need a diameter with that, Sir.
And more importanty a weight - or Load rating .. most dirt tyres are for small bikes with less weight (and power) (and speed).
Should look some thing like 120/70 17 V 67
17 being the diameter
67 being the load rating.. the larger the number the more weight it will carry.
The V is the speed rating .. closer to Z = highter speed ..
Most people find the more dirt oriented the tyre the shorter the distance it lasts. There is also not much difference in traction between a road tyre and a Tourance for example .. you need to go to a TCK 80 for a lot of difference .. and then you'll have half the life..
