Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Beautiful ride you got there - love the color. I'm curious, are the Shinko tires new or do you have a few miles on them? I went with Kenda but they don't offer a whitewall and Shinko are similarly priced around here. Just wondering how they wear. mileage, etc.

Thanks, I installed them yesterday 4/30/18.
I have put a few hundred miles so far today.

My last set was a Dunlop D404 same size. I have to say the Shinko 777 is alot smoother. It turns with ease compared to the Dunlop. That probably comes from the tread design, the shinko doesnt have a center line. The Dunlop did. My dunlops got 7000 miles. Im 6'5" 285lbs. My wife (100lbs) rode probably 3500 of those miles.

I will do an update after a few thousand miles on the shinko.
