Front yes, rear no, just use a 150/70-13.

I am still waiting for my tires. Fort 9 says that Canada Post is supposed to deliver one on Wednesday.

My local dealer keeps on saying soon.

My rear tire is bald!!!

There are only four tyres available for the Forza 300 rear in the correct size.
None of them is a Michelin.

My stock rear was toasted and got replaced at 4600 miles. I installed a Michelin City Grip sized 150/70-13 last December. It has been a better tire in every way, despite for being stock size. Mind you, I’ve only put 2300 miles on it, but so far, so good. I’d say to go ahead and get the 150.

I ordered mine from Cycle Gear and got it in good time. Then, early in June when I had to plug it, I ordered another rear just in case the plug wouldn’t hold. That one also came in good time, but now it sits in storage waiting to be called into service.

Pax et bonum,
Michael

I have had two rear City Grips. The first one lasted 16,000 km and the second got replaced at 15,000 km.

I got another one yesterday and need to phone my dealer to get it mounted.

12,000 km on the rear Michelin Power Pure rear tire but it is bald right now.

Both are good tires but the City Grip is better in the rain and mud.

The factory Dunlop ScootSmart was worn out at 10,000 km.
