michiganteddybear my shinko 230's required no additional balance weight. just make sure the pink dot on the sidewall is lined up with the valve stem. that dot marks the lightest point on the tire from the factory

Wolfie Hay RB.....the way tires are made nowadays, they dont need balancing....the wheels however do....used to be the other way around.....

VN rims aint bad, unless ya plan on ridin over 60mph a lot.....

romeobravo172 Got the 230 TM,s today. Was ordered on Monday just before noon. Got them from MC Superstore. Much satisfied so far with purchase. Thanks dyllansant, had heard about fast wear on here but I,m not an aggressive rider so these tires should last me until they dry rot again! My originals only have 4k on them!! We'll see, hopefully better ride now with new rubber. Hopefully can get them on soon. After reading other post, think I will go the old fashioned route and do the wheel weight balance thing---

you emailed me a year ago?!....hell, you know I've got "CRS"! lol
I bet, I also told you to let me know when you where going to make that trip and I'd see if I could ride down there and meet up with ya. the roads down there are better for riding then the ones up here. you wouldn't like the roads up here. too flat, too straight and the traffic sucks. all the cagers drive like aceholes. not as bad a NYC cagers, but still bad.

Come across on Route 6. It's a much nicer ride. Unless you REALLY want to be going 75+mph the entire way.
yup. besides, RT 6 is closer to me anyways.

dyllansant I had Shinko 230 TM's and had no problems. Good grip and smooth ride, though they wear quickly.

romeobravo172 Thanks for all the replys, I ordered Shinko 230 Tour Masters today and should be at my door on Wednesday. Getting the wheel off the rear won't be a problem as I'v done that one for the spline lube, am sure the front won't be a big deal. Not having tire irons and the like will prob take them to a local shop for mounting and balance. Am thinking with new rubber I should get a better smother ride as my old original tires were bound to be a little on the harder side! Thanks again--RB
