Out of all the vehicles that come under motorcycles, the moped and scooter are the smallest in size and power. Both these bikes have low ground clearance and a rigid body that doesn’t mix well with a bumpy road.
As these scooters and mopeds are designed to be more nimble, they have a compact size. The compact size demands smaller size rims. The standard rim size is thirteen inches, and the scale goes both ways. The small tyre on the scooter lets it use less energy to move around. The smaller tyres make it easier to maneuver and turn, making it ideal for use in a cramped urban environment.
For scooter and mopeds, there are independent tyre manufacturers. Most of these manufacturers produce tyres for the trailer, atvs, and motorcycles. There will be hardly any names that deal in car and motorcycle tyres – including moped and scooter tyres.
Moped tyres face another even larger difficulty. Due to the select number of user and the limitations of its range the tyres are not able to manage a lot of conditions. Scooter tyres come in off road and all season variety as these bikes can commute longer.
Where To Buy Moped And Scooter Tyres?
The safest bet is a motorcycle tyre shop. Since the majority of scooters have a standard rim size replacement tyres should be easily available. The other option is to search online. Buying tyres online can let you have them delivered to your door. It is also easier to go over the tyre specifications and draw a comparison.
