Damn Greg, 22 in the rear? I didn't take a good look at your tire but did you shred it?

Yup, that's what they told me to run a "race" rear at before...22 psi and that info was from Racers Edge at the track.

I've never even heard of brand? Is it just a stock tire that came new on the bike or what? Never even heard of it.

Anyway, I've been running Pilot Powers and have been running 33f/33r on the street just to add a little life in them, but with the way these roads suck...I woudln't add much more. Track I was running 32f/32r on the Powers just fine.

It has some pretty good wear to it, not enough to trash the tire though. But that is what they recommended and it stuck like glue.

Shinko tires are mostly used by Dragracers.. I first heard of them when frequenting Busa Forums and that is what they would use.. I haven't heard of too many peeps using them for daily riding.. But they are inexpensive esp if you are shredding them at the track.. I haven't heard anything bad about them from the peeps that use them..

Power race and run 32F/22R for track days.

I'm curious to know what you think of the Shinko's and have you put them on the track yet? I have a buddy that picked up a set of Shinko slicks (I think they're more of a motard tire than a road racing tire?) for $100 so naturally I figured they weren't all that, but I still haven't heard anything about them, good or bad, and NEVER seen anyone at the track with them.
