Shinko seem to be increasingly popular in the USA (for average use, not roadrunning or racing) due to very low pricing. Favourable reviews from riders across numerous different bike forums pointing to good road handling and wear rate. Shinko bought out the motorcycle wing of Yokohama tyres and use their technology and moulds to make the tyres in South Korea. Old or new technology ?? Anyone using them for everyday use here in OZ ?? Curious as may try them on my old Max later in the year.
