Why are Tires Important?

Tires play a vital role as part of your motorcycle or scooter, determining elements like geometry and equilibrium, and playing a critical role as the only links between the ground and the vehicle.

Did you know?

Your bike's footprint is not much bigger than a credit card.

And we ask a lot of them!

  • Transfer the power of the vehicle onto the road
  • Absorb irregularities in the road
  • Carry the full weight of the vehicle and rider(s)
  • Provide excellent grip on dry and wet surfaces when driving
  • Respond to the demands of braking and accelerating
  • Steer by mirroring the movements of the steering system
  • Last while providing good mileage


Your safety does not depend solely
on your vehicle or other drivers.

It also relies on your choice of tires. For your peace of mind and that of your loved ones, take the time to choose quality tires that are the right match to your motorcycle or scooter. Taking the time to choose the right tires is just as important as choosing your motorcycle or scooter.
