I need to get a new front tire, it is right on the wear mark. My last tire was a Michelin pure sport; I got just over 7,000 mi. on it. Has anyone (with a trike kit) gotten more ?

I haven't put enough miles on my trike to really know. I still have the Pirelli Diablo on it that was there before I did the trike conversion. It was almost brand new at that time.

No trike kit. Later SW came with IRC tires. My front lasted 6,500 miles and still had 3/32 of tread but was noisy on turns so I replaced it, others have gotten more mileage from this tire. Trike not so much leaning should last beyond 7k.

Dealer seems to have the best prices on these , strange but true..

Since your scooter was not deigned to be trike, think side forces/extra weight---and no steering damper or different rake fork-----look for tire with high weight rating/speed rating of S or higher, or refer to trike maker for tire recommendation.

Hi to all
Soon I will have to put new tires on my new SW. In the front has Bridgestone Battlax and the rear a Pirelli Diablo
I see that some members also have different brand of tires in front and rear
In a motorcycle I have always installed same brand

Pirelli Diablo is a good tire wear is good mine seems to be wearing evenly a little noise in turns. Tired a Diablo Rosso rear it is good tire but didn't last long and others have said front wore unevenly.

I'm currently running a Pirelli Angel rear but only 1,400 miles so to soon to judge how long it will last.
Oddly they don't make a Angel front for SW. 120/80/14 but they do make a rear in that size but not the same speed or load rating as a front SW tire and tread patterns are different front to rear.

Wife's Swing came with a worn out IRC front tire and I replaced it with a Bridgestone Battlax tire while waiting for the trike kit. Have not put much miles on the trike so I have no idea how many miles the tire will do, and the trike kit adds a bit of "weight" to the front end.

On my SW-T600 was before Michelin Power Pure in front and rear was Pirelli Diablo. I didn't liked that combo. Michelin was poor because it was so sensitive for road grooves. I bought Bridgestones Battlax SC2 to the front and rear and I liked very much. Smooth riding now. I've been driving now about 8500 km and tyres are very little worned. I think that Pirelli Diablo is little bit better than Bridgestone Battlax because the tire body is harder. I think it's better suited for sporty driving.

What surprises me is using different brand of tires in front and rear; (in theory) both from the same manufacturer would be a better match
BTW I have never seen a SW trike!

In the good old S of Africa we only have 2 makes available - mostly it's whatever you can get if anything? But in 200K worth of riding the Swings; I have found a Mitchelin Power Pure for the back and a Pirelli on the front to be best of a dud lot.
A Mitchelin tyre follows road groves on the front (whoa) and Pirelli wears out too quickly on the back. Mad Mad
