    Full Bore Tires

    There seems to be a new brand of budget tires out there, 'Full Bore,' which appears to be a Shinko under a new name. Anyone have any experience with these?

    Can't help on full bore tire. Buy what you want but my Shinko Raven 009's are as good as any other tires I've ever had.

    Pros/cons Shinko!

    My lighter bikes(KLR) love the Shinko brand, no issues. They came out with a GSA1200 tire, I tried it and it failed the first 1000m last Summer on a road trip. Tread started coming apart in the valleys of the treads. Looked very nice, comp to many others as new, but not so good after all for my GSA. I tried it, liked the idea of dollar savings, BUT got ugly soon after. Buying tires on a road trip is always more pricey too, so it cost me. Randy
