Shinko 705s

Time for new rubber-10000 kms,mostly city.Want to go less aggressive than the original Dunlops.Dont do any off roading.Dealer recommending and giving me 25% off the Shinkos.They seem pretty decent.

I just had some put on and I like them much better than stock. I have around 150 miles, no complaints.

I love them. Cheap, easy to mount, decent performance, decent lifespan.

Iíve ran a set of Shinko 705ís and was generally satisfied. Actually still running the front. Canít seem to wear it out. Probably last as long as the Tourance rear I have on now. For the price though I found the Kenda 761 to last a little longer.
