I was given a Piaggio Mp3 250 last year and I recently had to replace the rear tire. I'm wondering what tread level the front tires should be replaced at since I'm very unfamiliar with wear on scooter tires
Thanks

There are mandated tyre wear indicators in the threads. However, front tyres often age out before those are even approached! A good rule of thumb is to consider front tyre replacement every two rear tyres. If they still look in good condition with no cracks, good tread and good shape, maybe they'll last until a third rear tyre.

As above, also take into consideration less tread makes tyres more prone to punctures.
