What's one of the higher end rear tires I can get for my. 09 SWing? Looking for comfort, grip, tread life. Thanks in advance!

I put a set of Michelin Power Pure SC on mine about 1200 miles ago and I have been impressed with the ride and grip.  No significant signs of wear so far. I put these on my previous scooter, a Honda Reflex and they were much better than the Bridgestone tires that were stock in my opinion.  I even bought a replacement one for the future when I saw them on sale this winter.

I am sure if you search for tires on this forum you will find many recommendations...

I too have had matched F & R on my current SilverWing....but I found previous IRC front with Power Pure on rear worked better......feeling and possible cornering.

Power Pure rear on both SilverWing and Burgman 400 have lasted 10,000 miles....which I think I pretty good.

Power Pure front appears too square to me after 5,000 miles right now....was that way from start

I have a set of Pirelli Diablo tires on mine and haven't had any problems with handling. They have almost 8,000 miles on them and aren't looking too bad for wear. The rear is showing the most wear but that's to be expected. I should get this season out of them and change at least the rear this winter. I had them both mounted and balanced at Larson Cycle in Cambridge, MN. I put Ride On in them when I put them back on my SWing.

There was a Metzler Feelfree on the rear and a Bridgestone Hoop on the front when I bought the S'Wing, I replaced those this spring with a set of Dunlop Scooter Time tires, we shall see how they do over the summer.

I have a City grip on the back of mine, and the front could use a new tire (a bit surprising at 4 years old and 7k miles)
Am contemplating Power Pure, on top of the other good things I've heard about them, I think they're known to be easier to mount than most other scooter tires (someone correct me if I'm wrong there)
