Shinko 005 Advance

I see one review on the board about these tires. Anyone else tried them? The price definitely seems right. ~$180 a set. The vendor's site reviews are good, but I was looking for reliable feed back.

They Aren't bad tires,have run them on my other bikes (not the V yet) and I wouldn't be afraid to run them on my Versys.A riding partner of mine ran em on a ZX14 and liked them and he rides like a madman.

Love mine so far. About 7000 klm's and lots of tread left. Mind you, the streets are wet up here most of the time and I'm not pushing the tires that hard. Fit the 170 rear and 120 front without issues. Just wish they would wear out so I could try a DS tire for a while.

Falling down is your bodies way of saying you just screwed up.

Not to thread jack but I've got mine at 40/38 lbs rear/front. Wear is very good, not flattening out and even out to the edges. They heat up nice in the cold but in the heat they are like chewing gum. Rain sheading is good up until about 2 inches. Like I said, we get a lot of rain up here.

Bike Bandit just informed me that the front I ordered is shipped. Cost was $72.98 plus shipping, total $80.98.

I'll write up my impressions when I get it, and 'spoon' it on....
