Okay, I just went ahead and ordered 1 front and 2 rears. For that price, its worth it. My total with those 3 tires was $199.97. $.03 shy of $200. I went ahead and added a $1.99 Replacement Drink Valve for JP3 Suit - SKU# 184751. This put me over $200 and then I was able to use Coupon Code - C509CPNPAGE20 for $20 off $200 or more.

My shipped total was $181.96 for 3 tires!

There is a $5 coupon code off $100 if you just order two tires. - C509CPNPAGE5

[Edit] I just brought my order up to verify and the 3 tires say "On Order" vs "In Stock". Hmm, I might have to call them and see whats up with that? Their web page says in stock for these tires. It did have a delivery date of May 21st when I first checked out. I'll update this as I find out more.

Okay, I just called and she said tires show up as "On Order" when they come from one of their warehouses and since UPS classifies them as "oversize" they have to go by truck which takes a bit longer. We'll see how soon I get them. Crossing my fingers for the best.

I'll be leaving for a trip on my Vstrom at the end of June. I'll spoon these on at the beginning of June and give an update then.

I just bought a set for my Wee-Strom.

Frankly, at that price, I couldn't resist!

They should arrive later this month (05/22).

wow, that's cheaper than i expected.
quality rubber/compounds cost $...
and thus i'm not expecting much rear life from these.
i do like the look of the tread!

similar thing happened with rear maxxis detours.
great tread, cheap prices, life sucked...and then they pulled the tire.

now this front tire could be very usefull:


tread could have enough bite to be effective on dirt.
even if the life is less than others, fronts usally go 2x vrs rear life, so these could be a 1 to 1 usefull with a tourance or anakee rear.

guess on the flip side the rear could match a 1 to 1 (3-4k mi aprox) with a tck-80 front, for a nice combo

i'm really interested in seeing what those heidenau k60 will sell for this summer.

If the rear gets me 6k-8k miles and decent grip in the wet and gravel, I will be more then pleased. That's less then half the cost of Anakee's ($266) or Tourances ($290) shipped from the same place.

It would probably be worth it to order 2 rears and 1 front all at the same time.

110/80Q-19-TL - $55.99 (Actually listed in the same drop down as the rear)
150/70Q-17-TL - $71.99

71.99 + 55.99 = $127.98. This qualifies for free shipping so that is is $127.98 to my door!

My dealer got my 705s in today, I'll pick them up tomorrow. $125 OTD and they look like a great tire. Time will tell.

Awesome. Did your dealer give you an additional amount off of their "list" price or is that what anyone would pay walking in and getting them! That is a good price for a dealer.

Shinko 705s!

Can someone confirm for sure that the tires are tubeless in the 17/150s and 19 inchers.

They are listed as TL on MSS sites which means "Tube Less".

Old and slow but I got them spooned on last night.

Sidewall is stiffer than the Trailwing but not as stiff as the Trak Masters.

I'll ride them as soon as these thunderstorms pass thru.
