I only got 1600 miles on the first Perilli rear tire on my new LX150. After visiting my local Vespa (Vespa Rehoboth) today, I noticed that many of the new LXs are coming with Michelin Pilots on them. Anyone getting better mileage with them? FYI - it's nice to know that both are making the unheard of 11" front tire!

poor mileage...........
Wow I can't believe you got that mileage. Was that with the Pirellis ? I was lucky to get 2500 on them with my ET2.

I don't ride two up and I keep the rear tire around 30psi. So maybe I had a bad tire?

Point of interest.........it the glove box they suggest 29-30psi on the metal badge (just under the headset facing the driver) it suggests 41psi rear! ??
