Going to try the Shinko brand this time.
Good Luck with the Shinko. FishHunt has had very good luck with them. I tried them for the first time recently, for me it took a lot of fine tuning air pressure before I could get them to handle and feel stable. Now that I have the air pressure, shock and forks dialed in I might try them again, just because it was a nightmare dialing the bike in to the tires. I run the 009 ravens, I got around 5k out of first rear and I am on the second with 3k on it, the rear tire is holding up much better now. I have around 8k on front, center is like new but the sides are feathered and about to the wear indicators. Like I said now the bike and air is dialed in I probally will try them again. For $160 for both tires it is hard to not use them.
Good Luck with them.
