oh boy! here we go again, ANOTHER tire thread! this getting to be as bad as "oil" threads!
anyways, a lot of people here have the Shinko tires and like them. they may not last as long as tires that cost more, but they seem to be good tires.
also, the Pirellis are really good tires.
me, myself, I won't cut corners on tires. you only have TWO tires between you and the pavement! I buy the best tire that I can buy to put on ALL my bikes. because I don't trust my life to "cheap" tires! (how much is your life worth?) but, that is just me. to each their own.
what ever tire you buy, it will be a good move to go with the next size up for both frount and rear tires.
