    Michelin City Grip Tyres

     Wonder if these items will be sold in Oz?

    Good range of sizes too...including Honda SH300i

    MICHELIN CITY GRIP


    MICHELIN’s first PST siped scooter tyre

     

     

    Can't get by without your scooter?

    Thanks to MICHELIN's new Progressive Sipe Technology (PST), MICHELIN City Grip helps prevent sliding on hazards such as wet roads and manhole covers.

    MICHELIN City Grip helps you stay in control, whatever the riding conditions.

    At last, your scooter will be able to revel in the rain!

    Been out for a few months now.  We've put them on GTS Supers (and they seem to come standard with the Super Sport), and no complaints at all.  They have a nice solid band of rubber right round the middle, so they seem very smooth when on the straight.

    I've now had mine for a few weeks, and they are really good.

    Haven't done a good bendy session yet, but I'll report back when I have.

     After a minor off in rain last week, and quite a bit of sliding around before that, my Ruby is in at Scooter Shop (Ace weren't making me coffee any more Wink to change from Michelins (another type). I was offered the City Grips but decided to stick with my old favourites - Pirelli GT, partly because I know & are comfortable with them but also because they are Italian. Cool

    Ruby & I are both fine after the skid, fishtail & off, however she's also having an exhaust gasket changed today as she's sounding like an old diesel 4WD. Tongue Tied

    You should always have the same compound front and rear.
