You could try www.rideonadv.com or revzilla for the heidenaus as well... they are worth every penny, and will outlast shinkos by a substantial margin. The first set of K-60s I put on my 800gs went almost 20K miles. I've got almost 5k miles on the K-60s I mounted on my Super Tenere 6 weeks ago... they still look almost brand new.

Nice thing too with mc superstore is the tires are really fresh usually within 6 months of manufacture.

Has anyone tried any of these tires?




Also I think in terms of conversion:
90/90-21 is equal to a 2.75 or 3.00 21. ?

Fairly old thread, but I have one question that I guess goes here. Where are ya'll shopping for Mitas tyres? I tried browsing around http://www.mitasmx.com/ but the site seems to be a work in progress. Search does not work, browse isn't working, I can't add stuff to cart etc...

I am specifically looking for more info on the Mitas E10, and if they are decent tyres, thinking of fitting them on this week. Any pointers? Are they even available in the US?
