More About Scooter Tires

You already know how much gas money can be saved by zipping around on one of these little machines. In fact, your scooter is already well on its way to paying for itself! A new set of scooter tires will ensure your ride stays as economical as the day you brought it home.

Scooter tires donít have wear indicators, so donít rely on this method to judge whether your tires are worn out. Keep an eye on the tread area running down the center of the tire instead. This area will wear out the fastest. If you can see the top of Abraham Lincolnís head when you stick a penny into the groove, itís time to replace your tire. Donít wait until the tire is bald!

What does this have to do with saving money? A scooter tire that is worn out or at the incorrect tire pressure will lower the gas mileage you get out of your scooter (and increase the liklihood of an accident).
