Why choose your scooter tires carefully?

Unlike other types of two-wheeled motorcycles, the scooter is intended for city driving. The comfort of the driver is therefore what concerns manufacturers the most. To do this, every aspect of the vehicle, including the design of the wheels, has been ingeniously thought out. This is why the dimensions of scooter tires are significantly smaller than those of classic motorcycle wheels. However, although this characteristic allows the driver to be more comfortable on the road, it can quickly become a handicap when the tires start to wear out. Moreover, if your scooter's tires are not of good quality, you will have difficulty driving in rainy weather.

That's why it's important that you choose your scooter tires carefully. You should prioritize quality over the price of the tires. One of the best ways to achieve this is to opt for tires from recognized brands: Michelin, Dunlop, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Metzeler… By choosing the tires of these prestigious manufacturers available on, you are certain to obtain superior quality parts that you will use for a long time.

Apart from the brand, other equally important criteria must be taken into account to find the tires suitable for your two-wheeled vehicle.

Scooter tires: take into account the dimensions to make the right choice

Before choosing any tire, you must first know the dimensions that correspond to your scooter. If you cannot check the dimensions on the original equipment, you can find them in the scooter's user manual.

It should be noted that the two rims of a scooter do not have the same diameter, therefore, the dimensions of the tires are also not the same. If we take the example of the Honda Forza (one of the best-selling scooters in France), the tire dimensions are 120/70-15 at the front and 140/70-14 for the rear wheel.

The first number in each reference designates the section width recommended by the manufacturer. Thus, in the case of the Forza, the recommended width is 120 mm at the front and 140 mm at the rear. However, it is possible to use wider tires, as long as they do not rub against the frame of your machine. On the other hand, narrower tires can alter the performance of the scooter. Do not hesitate to inquire with your mechanic before choosing alternative size tires.

As for the second number, it corresponds to the ratio between the height and the section width of the tires. In the case of the Honda Forza, the normal height should represent 70% of the width. Finally, the numbers 15 at the front and 14 at the rear designate the inner diameter of the tires.

These dimensions differ from one scooter to another. Remember that the designer's recommendations must be respected if you want to drive safely. Indeed, a significant modification of the tire size can have an influence on the top speed of your scooter, and even its fuel consumption.

Know the load and speed indices

Just like the dimensions, the load and speed indices are information to take into account to choose your scooter tires correctly. The first indicates the maximum load that the tire can support.

As for the speed indicator, it is an alphabetical code that allows you to estimate the maximum speed you can reach with your tire. For example, the K index on a tire means that it can travel at a speed less than or equal to 110 km/h.

To know the load and speed indices that you should choose, the best solution is to refer to the original tire.

Choose your tires according to weather conditions

For safe and comfortable driving with good road holding, you must choose your scooter tires according to the season. To choose its tires, you have the choice between:

  • Summer scooter tires;
  • Winter scooter tires;
  • All-season scooter tires or all-season tires.

As their name suggests, summer tires are designed to ride on dry roads in summer. These tires are often very durable when well maintained.

As for winter tires (which often bear the M+S mark), they are made to be used when the temperature drops below 7 °C. The rubber is soft and prevents skidding on a wet or snowy surface. Note that this type of tire is less resistant than the first, especially if you are used to riding in the city.

Although it is not as efficient as the winter or summer tire, the all-season tire is the choice to make if you do not want to change wheels between two seasons. It can ride on a dry, snowy or wet surface.

Where to buy scooter tires?

Once you know the type of scooter tire you need, all that's left is to find a point of sale. For this, several options exist:

  • Purchasing from a brand-owned store;
  • Purchasing from a physical store specializing in the sale of spare parts from several brands;
  • Online purchase.

The first option can be convenient if you already have your brand preferences. In this case, you just need to go to the nearest Michelin or Kenda store (depending on your choice), equipped with information about the scooter tires you are looking for. However, the purchase cost can be high.

The second and last options have common points. In physical stores as well as on e-commerce sites, you can choose between several brands. However, online shopping is by far the best solution if we take into account the multiple advantages it offers.

How to properly maintain scooter tires?

Tire tread wear is the main enemy of a scooter's tires. To extend their lifespan, certain precautions must be taken. How to do it?

Balance the tires during assembly

It is common to see individuals replace their wheels themselves, without using the services of a professional. Certainly, it's a solution that reduces your expenses, but the slightest mistake can cost you a lot. For example, if balancing is not done correctly, your tires will wear out quickly and you will be forced to replace them again after a few months. It is therefore essential that this adjustment is done very well during assembly if you want to use your new wheels for a long time.

After mounting the tires, we also advise you to drive gently for some time so that the running-in of your tires can be done effectively. Indeed, new tires are unstable. Therefore, you need to drive for about 50 to 200 kilometers before they reach an optimal performance level.

Regularly adjust the air pressure of your equipment

The level of air pressure affects the lifespan of the tires and even the road holding. If the pressure is insufficient, the top speed of your scooter will be reduced and this will lead to high energy consumption. In this case, the wear of the tires will be very fast. As a reminder, it is recommended to inflate your tires with a pressure of 1.9 to 2.5 bars for the front and 2.5 to 2.9 bars for the rear (depending on the type of scooter).

The air pressure of scooter tires decreases quickly when they are used. Therefore, remember to check this factor regularly after having traveled long distances.

What to remember about a scooter's tire?

Riding with smooth scooter tires is a violation of the Highway Code. They also increase braking distances. If you notice that your wheels are worn, change them without delay. In the catalog, you will find different models and brands of new tires that will match the dimensions of your two-wheeled vehicle and have a good lifespan.
