    I installed the Shinko 705 rear tire 140/80-17 back in May of this year at 10850 miles.

    Here is the same tire now at end of Sept(4 months of hard riding on & off road) with 8544 miles on it.

    I have not been easy on these tires. I have pulled many of the mountain passes in my area with and w/o touring loads wide open throttle during the heat of our summer. I mean long hard pulls for many miles to the top. I have also spun it many times off-roading(mostly on purpose), though never on the pavement. There are no signs of "lifting" or cracking in between the lugs.

    So far i have been very pleased with the Shinko 705's. The front 705 has about 5k on it currently and it barely shows any wear at all. I will now be replacing the rear 705 very soon with another one for my trip to Alaska in June 2020! :{)

    Shinko 705

    I will update this post with a picture of my worn tires but I installed them at 20,500 miles and just replaced them at 30,190. Nothing but regular highway commutes and 400 miles of rough dirt and rocks. Think had 2 punctures on them. The 705s went up in price so I just replaced it with Shinko 712s. The front 705s still going strong which have been on since 9,830 miles. I say these are some really good tires!

    based on my experience that will be very soon. I have 4k on my 705 150.70 and it's toast. wish someone could tell me why. I don't ride that hard, but have the misfortune of living in MIchigan. The front is SUPER loud. probably will go another way when it wears out. already got a 712 for the rear at change.

    sorry thought this would post by post #8 that I was replying to. about his tire becoming less tall like stock as it wore out.

    Hey Cozy that is a good looking wear pattern. Good job on keeping an eye on the weight carried and psi used. I check mine often(not every ride though, but often). Only on high mpg test will i air them up high(for lower rolling resistance). ANyway, i'm sure happy with both of mine. You mentioned a lot of noise on your front tire, i don't see that with mine. I get some humming about 18-25mph and that is about it. :{P

    Or how the (at least 2012 MY) NC700 came with Metzeler Z8's. The rear was just a "normal" tire, but the front was an "E-Spec" which supposedly specially designed for the NC700, but is also a little more expensive than the "M-Spec". I think I remember reading it had a different profile specifically designed around the steering geometry, but I can't seem to find any reference to that anymore.
