These look like a more aggressive Shinko 703, which is what I am running now. No personal experience but I may give them a try in the future.

I heard they are the Shinkos rebranded. I ran the Shinko radials on my bike and liked them fine. The rear didn't get many miles, I think around 4000-4500 but the front did about 16000 miles. Pretty sticky and a little more agressive than the tourance.

which is a pretty good tire in my experience

Every link like this I have seen has been at least two years old. Anything out there more current? I can't find anything.

Is it possible Shinko has fixed these problems in the last two years? Is it possible he other tire manufacturers have had a similar issue in their years of production? I am new to this so I don't know.

Properly typed title... Small hyper linked pics that are spaced just like they were pasted of another forums post... And a post count of 1...

Why not just be honest and say you work for the manufacturer? Come on out of the closet hero...

You are right, that photo is copy pasted from website of one tiredealer. I just asked if anybody has any experience with these unknown tires. I appreciate your professional knowledge - it helps a lot.

I have a Full Bore M40 radial on the rear of my 1150GSA. It has 7500 miles at the moment and looks like it will get another 1000-2000 miles. I have not compared it to the Shinko, but I have heard the lug spacing is a little wider on thie Full Bore. I am very happy with it and am up in the air if I switch to the Tourance or stick with the Full Bore. The only reason I would switch to the Tourance is I am a 95/5 rider and the Full Bore does let loose when it is really wet and I lean too much. If I ride a little more reserved in the rain, I have zero issues with it. It is a great tire for the price.

made in the same plant as the Shinko's...

but uses a different mold and tread pattern. (look closely)

I have a set on my bike currently and a new rear sitting beside me as I type this.

expect to get maybe close to 7k on the rear by the time I swap, on a bike that is basically always loaded. (myself and three boxes of gear) took them on a recent trip to the rally in Oregon.

I do have a vibration from the front.. don't see any strange wear and it "appears" ok BUT I balanced re-using the dynabeads from the last install and that might be the issue. I expect to be removing the tire this weekend sometime to inspect, remove beads and reinstall. maybe it will be the beads...

performance wise... they are "ok" on the road. I'm not pushing them as hard as I would a more street oriented tire and in the dry they seem ok. can handle a sport ride fine but I wouldn't push them past that either. I had them in rain but drove conservatively and did fine. off road, haven't had them in the wet off road, only dry dirt and sand. they worked as well as one could expect such a tread pattern. which means they aren't knobbies, but are still a far site more meaty than most. air em down and ride appropriately.

anything in particular you are looking for?

honestly I was thinking I should've just gotten an K60 set but wanted to get the tire NOW and for some reason when I order these I get them the next day. (I ordered this rear tire Wednesday night and it was at my house Thursday early afternoon) and I was thinking of swapping this weekend... but honestly I have other things to do and the front tire takes precedence so now it might wait till next week to install.

the thing is... the price. hard to beat that price. but if I can get 10-11k miles from a hedeniau K60 (if) then the point is close to moot since it removes the time and bother of a tire change. then again... that price. a full set for less than the price of a K60 rear. hopefully it is the beads in the front tire, removing the beads and a normal balance might resolve.

wanted to add something...

hopefully the front tire wobble is nothing, because I want to like these tires even more than I wanted to like the Anakee 2's. (they ended up disappointing)

for one thing, the front tire is a lot quieter than the Anakee 2.

and they are far better off road.

(in the rain, where the anakee 2 is supposed to really shine, I highly doubt the Fullbore could come close, but I don't know since I didn't see much we with either. or even for all out sport riding on road... where the Anakee 2 was slightly more confident. but like I said, for what it is the fullbore does fine on road)

fyi the set of tires I have on the bike have made a trip up 395 to 89 to 5 into Oregon up to Portland, over Oregon 36 to the coast, down the coast to yet another 36 (how strange is that? California 36= Curves Next 140 Miles ) back to 5 and down to san diego. (with a few side trips like up 120 over the sierras and back) beside a few trips to the local mountains and deserts of socal.

they handled it just fine. fully loaded and leaning over. lol

edit: what I thought might be a front tire wobble was nothing.

the tires are working out just fine.

no idea why somebody living in Finland is looking at them... are they sold there?

8500 miles on the rear with at least another 1000 before the center of the tread is gone. I would not be surprised if this thing does not make it close to 10,000. I almost regret buying and mounting a set of Tourances on my second set of wheels. They are just sitting there and will likely sit for another month before I swap them. I have not had Tourances and wanted to see how they handle in the rain. The M-40 can slip a bit in rain. Overall though, super deal for a solid performing tire.

I've got about 1000mi left on my rear TKC and think I'm going to try one of these. It was one of these or an original Tourance, but for $85 I figure it can't hurt to try it out
