Has anyone used Shino tires I found a really good deal on a set and want to know a little more on them.

How good a deal? I've gone to the darkside and paid $58 for a car tire that will last me 40 to 50,000 miles. You'll never find a better deal then that on a MC tire.

My Hyosung GV250 came with Shinko's as the original tire. I have 17,000 kilometers on them and they are still in good shape. No complaints!

I got the Shinko 230 tour master rear tire. The 150 variety I believe. Have 3k miles on it so far. No complaints yet and it was a good price.
