    Shinko 705 long miles tread wear w/pictures

    Theese were installed at 38200 miles, bike currently has 48641 miles a total of 10441 miles on the tires. Keeping them at 36psi all around for a highway commute of 200 miles round trip and about 100 miles of dirt riding on them at 25psi. Front looks like they can last another 5+ thousand miles maybe, rears are done....

    Front 130/80/17

    Rear 150/70/17

    I知 currently at 16,000 miles on my front and I知 pretty sure they値l make it 20,000. My rear lasted me about 10,000 but I had to change it before a major trip so I think I could have squeezed 12,500 miles.

    I don稚 think there are better value tires than these shinkos.

    I have a set of 705s coming in the mail for this summer. Figured I壇 give them a try. Hoping to explore more gravel around here.

    What size fits the rear? Or am I better off getting a different tire for the rear?

    I just ordered my first set of them and went with 150/70. Others have used the 170 size. I think most use the 150 because it is a little rounder and should lean a little easier. I値l find out after I get them installed.

    The 150/70 is also cheaper than the other close size (I forgot what that was).

    I, too, like the Shinko 705s. The only odd behavior is that they get very squirmy on tar snakes. Does anyone else notice that? I think it may be due to the diagonal tread block design.

    any clearance problems with the 130/80 front? I thought that was listed as a tube tire too.
