The best tyres I,v ever had on a Scooter were Yokohama Profires, grip was fantastic, filled me with confidence every time out no matter what the weather, worst I,v had lately are S1's, I just couldn't cope with them tracking white lines, but dont dismiss S83's as an allrounder, they are a lot better than they look.

I'm on my 2nd set of City Grip Winters, I like them, decent grip in all weathers (I ride all year round) and get up to 3k miles on the rear.
That is good. You're not five stone soaking wet are you? :lol:
:lol: If only, 6'3" and 16 stone

I'm glad this topic has popped up.
I'm a brand new rider, got a PX125, scoot has got Michelin tyres. I'm using the scooter in all weathers for going to work. I was wondering which tyres would be best. That tracking thing when riding is a pain especially as i'm still pretty much learning to ride. I didn't know tyres could affect that so definitely would like something that will help eliminate even if just a little.
I would recommend Michelin City Grip Winters, great all weather tyre with decent wear rate

I'm using Heidenau K58. I've been very impressed with them.

1000k on the WAW ride on the City Grip Winters in some fairly hefty rain on occasions - no complaints
