Scorpions are an OK tread. Not great. Not terrible.oilerfan30 said:I'm thinking of buying a pair of Hutchinson Scorpions off a family member. They are the lightest weight tires out there, unless you buy custom. They are 1-3 years old (i'm not sure) but seem like great tires. They are barely worn, and I was wondering if they are a good purchase and what they are like. Also, what do you think for pricing on them?
I use Wildgrippers comp SL right now, but are running both with tubes because i managed to pop both of them.
I have never heard of Hutchinson "Extra Light" version tires. There are Air Lights and they are common and not expensive.
I seriously doubt if the tires you are looking at are the "lightest weight tires out there".
I just received a pair of Panaracer SpeedBlaster SonicLites - 343g/360g
I have a Schwalbe Fast Fred - 368g
Kenda claims 345g for the Klimax Lite
Maxxis has a 320g tire.
