One of the most reluctant things I found when buying the Scrambler was the 18 inch Front tire. I like tire choices and found the size limiting. I want to ride my Scrambler to work and I can't let a little rain or cold weather slow me down. After sliding the rear on the brakes in the rain it was time for tires that actually stuck to the road. a set of Michelin Road 3's feel great and are nice and sticky on the pavement. Out with the old and in with the new.
