Looking for some advice

I am looking at getting some whitewalls but am struggling to make a decision, I prefer the older traditional tread, I currently have the original tyres and I really don't like them even though i know they will last forever!

Any advice, recommendations will be much appreciated

Cheers

try SAVA MC20's they have a more traditional tread and SAVA are a good tyre for wear and durability. hope that this helps ;)

Continental do a white wall tyre . The. K62. It has a traditional block tread but has a modern compound so they also have good grip too.
Just make sure that you specify K62 white walls as they also make the K62 in standard black.
As for the Mod references , I think it is known as "friendly banter". :?:

Ps. If you decide to buy the Contis, shop around for them as the prices can vary a lot and if you are buying two or more at a time you may get an even better deal.
Good luck,
Nigel.

Hi Becks, if you decide to go for the Sava's give Grayspeed on this forum a shout as they were the cheapest at the time I bought mine...;)
Only for mods?.....don't think so they are for people who like to detail their scooters they are certainly not for the "rat pack" who like to have their scooters all oily and dirty :D
Just remember, you bought it, you can do with it what you like & I like whitewalls, a bustard to keep clean though ;)

I concur they are a good quality all round tyre . I actually quite like Whitewall tyres and I am certainly not a mod .
Dont like mods at all .

Seriosly though the K62s are good in all weathers though are a bit skittish on white lines but having said that my Yokohama Profire,s are,nt much better and they are stickier than Kerry Catona,s gusset .

Whitewalls rock Hippriest's world!

I've had Contis on for about 3 years now. Dunno which ones coz that would entail getting off my fat arse and going to the garage and that's too much like hard work tbh.

Look great & grip well.....but I seem to get thru them like socks, so not sure about durability.

Oh, and btw, I'm a sort of ageing indie rocker / Mod / Nigel Normal hybrid....if that helps in the Mods debate :? .

I've had the Racemans (whitewall) and the rear delaminated after about 8k. They're known for it.
I wouldn't mind if you got some warning, because there's limited whitewall sport patterns available, but it deflated like it was a tube puncture. In fact worse because the tyre weld couldn't even re-inflate it.
Therefore they defeat the purpose of going tubeless for safety.
As for cleaning, bleach and Brillo pads is the best. It's true that they need cleaning often but certainly not difficult. The rear gets the dirtiest. I've settled for whitewall on the front, black Dunlop on the rear.
White walls are a style option nothing to do with mods as far as I know... Whatever a Mod is!

I used Sava whitewall for years, good tyre and clean up with slight abrasive like paint polish or cif liquid. Rear tyre wore out about 18 months but scooter was always heavy laden for rallies two up and daily commuter.

Just get whatever tyres you like, and if you want white walls- how about these?
