My tire turn :? The above link takes you to a SHINKO SE890 Journey 160/80R-16 81H.

Is this one of the tires I hear you guys raving about? Even an opinion would help as I'm changing brands, good bye Dunlop.

I've never used that one, but I've heard/read good things about it. They don't them them in the 1200 size.

Thanks bro, I could have searched for a review but I have always counted more on anything said by one of OUR members.

Okay, pulled the trigger. :BigGrin: We'll just see about these Shinkos.

Going to do Joel's trunk flip, and I also plan to try the zip tie trick to get it mounted myself. I will also use the Dynabeads I was talked out of using last time.

Who talked you out of dyna-beads? The set that I had in my 1100 tires had been reused so many times they were more black than white. I loved them.

I thought detdrbuzzard had mentioned that he wasn't sure about that tire on his mighty st? May be mistaken.

Randy that is the tyre that I am running on the rear of Val. It is a little harder than the A230s which I would of preferred but they are not available in my rear tire size. Theoretically the harder compound should translate into longer lasting.

Nice thanks Ansimp, as for the Dynabeads I was with george(vegaswingnut) and he doesn't really like them and the tire was mounted at a harley type shop and that guy started talking about bouncing wheels. Together they spooked me. The thing is I know they are great. My 1100 never handled better until I used the beads.

Beads saved my bacon when I was on I95 heading for Florida on the Standard. Grandma and Grandpa slammed on their brakes is front of me and I rear-ended them doing about 35 to 40. The forks were compressed so thankfully I had no damage but, it shook like a bitch for about two seconds and just stopped. I'm not sure that I would have had the same result with lead weights on the wheel.

Beads or weights, as long as your tires are correctly balanced I don’t think that you can go wrong. I always wanted to try Ride-On as they claim it to be a dynamic balancer and tyre sealer that doesn’t make a mess of your rim or tire.

Aren't beads dynamic? They move.

Yes, so you tires stay balanced under any condition.

I got the best mileage, and the least road hazzard damage from the Shinkos on The Turd, compared to the Dunlops or Bridgestones. I went with Dunlops on the 1500 for various reasons, but if they turn out to be less than expected, I'll replace them with Shinkos.

The E3's do very well on the front, on the rear I'd say just at the upper end of "good mileage."

Shoot, when you consider the weight of these behemoths, do any of the companies really make an adequate tire for the rear? Also, why would they if they could? They are all laughing all the way to the bank.

The E2 my 1100 had on it when I bought it looked nearly new. I replaced it and the wheel together. Recently I put it back on because I didn’t want to get a new tire at the time. It performed well, and was still almost new in tread but over 10 years old. No cracks either, so I’ve found the solution to tire wear. Buy VERY old stock. The rubber gets super hard, and resists both punctures and wear!







Just kidding.
