Thanks, will give them a call when I'm changing my PCX tyres.  thumbup.gif , Price is not primary concern. Just the availability is.

Anyway, how's City Grips on your NMAX? hmm.gif

They should have sizes and tire models available for all popular scoots.

As for my City Grips: 2100+ km so far and they're amazing. Way better grip than the standard tires in the wet, which was why I swapped to them as soon as I could.

Hopefully they have. At the moment, I'm using el cheapo Maxxis, the only option available in 2016 sweat.gif . Ditch out stock tyres after using it for less than 6 months. Too slippery if wet. sweat.gif

Hi guys,

Need opinion on which tyre is great for daily commuting and sometimes crazy weekend ride. Looking for size 70/90/17 front and 90/80/17 rear. Main priority is grip and safe to ride in rain. Your opinion on these 3 tyres below is appreciated.
1. Michelin Pilot Street
2. Pirelli Angel CT
3. Metzeler Sportec Street

From what i heard from my fried, he said he's using Timsun 692 and the grip very nice because of the tyre using soft compound if not mistaken

These tires r good...

Just that mostly made in Vietnam/China .. but still good...

I am using Metzeler Roadtec01 HWM version made in china.. flawless during rain and good grip during corner, however Michelin tend to give you better mileage... (last longer)..

what's your mileage like for s21? my friends all reporting in the 10k~ range only...

and in the group, those riding sport touring tires can easily keep up with hypersports users, so not sure if it's even worth it..

No.1 and 2 is the same level of grip and mileage. I never tried no.3.
