Today’s link is:  SmallTires.com

I have been sort of, as you may say, fanning the flames a little, over this topic on Modern Vespa about super-sizing the rear tire.  What I found was that people are experimenting out there with different brands and different sizes of tires.  Some like it fat and wide for better ride quality; while the others like a little taller tire for better steering, or cornering feel.  After all, no matter how powerful or remarkable your engine, variator and tranny maybe on your scooter, it is through the rear tire alone that this brute strength is put to the road and how.

Today, Fuzzy on MV posted yet another scooter tire site, SmallTires.com, so I decided to check it out.  Hey!  A dedicated scooter tire page (score!), large selection of brand names with easy-to-search options (nice touch!), 100,000 tires for a wide range of purposes in stock, and pretty dang good prices and fair shipping rates, too (excellent)!  BTW, it has  already been bookmarked in our ever-expanding Resource Guide, filed under Parts.  Now, that you should definitely check out!–Lorenzo

Our other favorite tire sites include:  Americanmototire.com, Motorcycle-Superstore.com (RG‘s new fav), BikeBandit.com and DennisKirk.com (with the “Beat Everybody by A Buck” offer).

    Thanks for the link. I’m going to order new tires for Riva through them. A great source for all scooter tires.
