I dont recommend it, but I got almost 8K miles out of my rear tire.
Nylon was showing.
Cost me over $180 to replace (86 for tire, 90 to install, tax).
I decided to let stealership install it....too much trouble to pull wheel.
Dealer would not give me bike back due to mandatory recall...so I had to wait two more hours for them to put a new fuel pump on. :-(
FYI Front tire has not hit the wear marks yet.

I only got 9819 km (6101 miles) out of my original ScootSmart tire but at 8121 km I picked up an industrial staple. I unknowingly rode 60 km home with a deflating tire. It was flat the next day. It was plugged until I got a new tire 1698 km later. Michelin CityGrips are hard to get here. They have to come from Montreal and Canada is a big ass country.

I got 16323 km (10142) out of the rear CityGrip but that was down to the wires unfortunately. Hard to get again, you would think I would learn, cheap Welsh father to blame.

Letting the wires or nylon show through tires is very dangerous. BTDT unintentionally. I have a replacement tire in my shed now for when I need it. I bought tire irons and will try to replace it myself when it is time.

My rear IRC tyre are wearing down kind of fast, I might get 6,000 miles from them. 10k miles from your CityGrips is quite impressive, I might consider those for my next rear tire.

I don't know why but I'm currently at 15,300 kms (9500 miles) (1 year and 2 months) on my stock rear IRC tire and I haven't touched the center wear bars yet. I will change as soon as it touch them wear bars.

the front seems like they would last twice as the rear.

I am on a Forza 300, you I suspect are on a PCX.

I am 200 pounds and I bet you aren't.

Dave, good luck with the tire irons. I found it near impossible to get the rear completely out of the rim using them- only to discover that sawing out the bead with a little Dremel made it very easy. Dremel is Magic.

I know this was referring to the Forza, and I have a PCX, but where tyre types are concerned:
I had no issues with stock tyres - rear lasted over 3yr's and 13,000miles, I now have a CG fitted to the rear and still stock on the front. IMHO, CG is ok, not much better if any than the stock tyre as it seems people love it for 'tiliting the scooter round turns' and the CG may have the edge there due to the tread pattern, but for normal forward rolling, the CG does not have any advantage to my mind (wet or dry). See how long it lasts compared to stock.
