    A screaming bargain, a little short-lived
    These tires handle great, and they stick fantastically well in all conditions wet or dry. The only downside is that they're somewhat short-lived compared to far spendier options.

    Since I don't put a ton of miles on my vintage bike, that's perfect -- I get to enjoy a new set of tires just about every year.

    I also mount my own tires; if you're paying someone to mount yours, then the equation might change.

    Shinko Front tire
    Used this on my Honda Shadow 1100. Handles great and getting great wear. Not much driving on wet so only gave a 4 because i don't know but i think it would be good.

    I won't put more than 500 miles a year on these tires. They will dry rot before I will wear them out. (I really need to sell this bike....) With soft rubber they grip like glue. Softer rubber gives this bike a smoother ride. If you can change your tired to save the fixed labor cost and realize you get lower tread life then this is a good tire at a bargain price. Remember these are not a high performance tire and the faster you ride the lower the tread mileage.

    Can this be used with a tube, on my 2003, 250 Yamaha Virago?
    A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use them with tubes. In reality, any tire can be used with a tube. If your wheel is not a "mag" type wheel (mag wheels are generally tubeless type) then it has traditional spokes and you must protect the tube from being damaged by the spoke ends protruding through the wheel with a wheel rubber band or duct tape around the inside diameter of the rim. This prevents the spoke nut ends from chafing the tube.
    I would not hesitate to use this tire with a tube on my spoke or mag-type wheel. Some mags Tubeless wheel) develop a leak through a porous casting defect and must be remedied with a tube installation.
    I believe the tire is quite a value, especially considering its cost.
