Howdy gents, my current hack is eating rear tires... Like 1 every three months. I've tried to lean the scooter out to the left more but can't seem to figure out how with the Cozy attachments. Any suggestions?

Mine eats them too. It's normal. I have built 5 sidecar rigs for Stellas and they are all hard on rear tires. But, look at the good side. The sidecar tire will last forever Smile

Try a different brand of tire. That is the best you can do. What are you running now?

Thanks, right now I'm using Shinko white wall tires. The Primas don't fit the rear and I don't know if the Contis are any better for wear in the rear? They are twice as much so...

The Shinko is a good cheap tire, but they have never been known for their longevity, but the price is right ( I have them on my 50 ). I run the Michelins and get "decent" life on the sidecar, better than the shinko, but that bike still eats them . I got 2200 on the last one.

After reading your post. Are you keeping white walls? If so, you have many less choices.

I heard the Prima was wearing okay. Did it rub the clutch cover?

Keeping the white walls yes. I am lucky if I get 1k miles on the rear tire. The Primas do wear the cover on the Stella 4t...
