Shinko 005 Advance Front Tires
Short time on bike
Just got this tire mounted so can't speak to tread wear or wet traction yet.
However I can say that the handling is noticeably better than the stock Bridgestone on my Ninja.
Turning is much sharper and easier.
If it gives me a reasonable tread life I'll definitely try Shinko again.

bought the front and back set together when they were on sale, and I can say I do not regret it one bit. the grip is all there as these are soft tires that you can leave your finger nail imprint on them, but, in contrast I find that they do not wear as fast as I thought they would, I still have hairs on my pair and I ride every single day. I have to say I am very pleased with these tires and how quickly they arrived. I will definitely buy them again from revzilla.

I had the 005 rear tire for about 6000 miles and was very impressed. I have just put the front tire on and rode it for about 250 miles and I will have to say it is a very hard tire. I replaced a Dunlop and I can feel every bump in the road now. Im hoping as the tire wears in it will soften up a bit but I guess I will find out. The price is unbeatable and the tread pattern looks very good but if the ride doesn't improve I will probably not order another front tire.

Great tire for the money!
This is the second 005 Advanced tire I have put on my M109R. I have over 30K on my ride, so I have tried many, and this tire has lasted the longest (10,000 miles). I ride my bike aggressively and this tire performs well for its price.

I have 1000 miles on this tire so far, it's on a 97 zx6r i use to commute to work. I've done very little wet riding but when i did the tire worked very good. hardly any signs of wear yet. i'm not a racer but i feel i'm fairly aggresive in the corners and the tire holds the road great. I mounted it myself with no weights or beads and had no balance or vibration problems, at least to 100 MPH.
