New tires


I just put on a set of Shinko 777HD white wall tires on my 2006 Silverado 1100. I think the white walls bring out the chrome or vice versa.

Come on, let's see a real good pic of the Shinkos. I bet the white wall is great.

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.

Gorgeous! Jealous!

I regularly ponder getting mine repainted to two-tone: white/? and getting whitewalls for the nice vintage look...

I actually hate the paint job. I like the color but when you get close to the bike you can tell an amateur painted it. The previous owner painted it and I haven't got around to painting it. I was thinking about painting it black but the white walls do look good with the blue.

IMHO, if you're gonna repaint anyway, nothing looks better than two-tone...

Having said that, I do quite like the blue you've got (admittedly can't really see quality/not of it in photos...)

IT is a good look with the Schinko's. I have thought about whitewall for my black La Madrugada 1100 but the wife says "NO SIR" in Spanish and I listen.
