The sparks also help your visibility when riding at night.

Default maximum age of useable tires

this brings up a question in my mind...how long would you use street tires on your hoss before changing them out, regardless of tread wear? what it the maximum use-life of street tires?...

Three to Five years, depending on Environmental Conditions. If they're starting to crack, check, or craze - it's time for new tires.



Actually, - scratch that. Tire manufacturers are going broke as we speak; if you haven't bought new tires for your scoot within the last..... oh, say...... 45 minutes or so - get your order in..........

Yeah, almost forgot: Most tire manufacturers will work with you to keep you supplied in toroidial rubber bladders. I'm sure you'd get a substantial Discount if you have a Standing Order of 50-200 sets a week from each of the Major Manufacturers.



How many sets should I put you down for?
