With the country’s many traffic jams, potholes, and other road hazards, scooters have quickly become one of the best options for getting around. Yet to maximize easily getting in and out of tight spots, it’s important to choose a tire that can handle the worst road hazards even in the big city, like stones, dirt, and potholes in wet and dry weather.
CST which stands for Cheng Shin Tires, and is the parent company of Maxxis Tires, offers three scooter tire choices that meet these criteria. These are the C6501 Magsport, the C6528, and the C6577 Adreno.
All three are designed to deliver excellent performance and traction on wet roads and corners, thanks to an engineered tread pattern specifically designed to maximize grip and reduce the likelihood of a slide. The hybrid compound, tread pattern design, bead engineering, and casing structure of CST Scooter Tires allow for a versatile and engaging riding experience for various uses and road conditions. They each have their own particular specialties.
The C6501 Magsport is designed for city use, particularly slow-speed maneuvering and stop-and-go driving while still performing on the occasional joyride outside the city. The C6501 is available in 70/90-14, 80/90-14, and 90/90-14 sizes for tubed and tubeless configurations.
The C6528 is a hybrid sport and touring tire. Designed for both short and longer distances, it’s ideal for a quick sprint to the café but can also handle a days-long road adventure out of town. The C6528 is available in the following tubeless sizes: 80/80-14, 90/80-14, and 100/80-14.
Finally, there’s the Adreno C6577. These tires are designed for performance, even for use in race tracks. It’s made of a special compound and unique tread construction to provide a wider contact patch. It’s high-grip construction also makes it an ideal hybrid sport-and-touring tire.
