    No more Pirelli Diablo!

    Pirelli Diablo Scooter tire does not come in 16 inch anymore.
    What is the next best tire for performance on twisty roads?

    Avon?
    https://www.avontyres.com/en-us/tyre...ype=motorcycle

    Continental?
    https://www.continental-tires.com/mo...res/contiscoot

    Metzeler?
    https://www.metzeler.com/en-us/products/tires/feelfree

    Michelin?
    https://motorcycle.michelinman.com/m...elin-city-grip

    or something else?

    I wanted the 140/70-16, but I could go with that.

    Or back to ebay:

    About 3 months ago I just got a set for Bubbles Blast. Maybe it's a result of the virus thing? Not 'essential' to ship tires? That Pirelli seems to be the go-to for Blastards, and she really likes hers.

    I have not found a website with 140/70-16 Diablos for sale. Revzilla has them listed too but not available, bikebanit has Diablos up to 15". The Angels seem to be more wet weather oriented compared to the Diablos. But if they are the next best I might try them.

    Both of those last links let me put them in my cart and theres plenty of other E-bay sellers. Are you in an odd area or something?

    I find that Amazon is pretty understandably busy, but e-bay mostly comes from smaller businesses and I have had no problem with them.

    Oh well good luck buddy. I can only let you know the oversized Pirellis work great on a Blast

    I am in New York, about to move back San Diego. americanmototire.com lists the 140/70-16 Diablos as Sold Out.

    I think I will go with the 120/80-16 Diablos you found on ebay, thanks Cooter

    Bubbles has read so many of your posts, she thinks she knows you, LOL.
