I just thought I'd give my 2 cents on the SR series SR 568 Shinko set I put on last fall at 11,000 miles. I have put on about 4000 miles on them. They are quiet, wear round, ride very well and smooth. The rear has plenty of wear left and the front looks hardly worn. I do a combination of highway, side roads and do the speed limit, generally; only occasionally do short bursts of 120-140 km/h. I check tyre pressure every 2 weeks or so. Only had to top up once 2 psi front and rear.
I am very satisfied with these tyres and plan on buying another set when the time comes. No need to go another brand, these are very reasonably priced. I haven't ridden in the rain or in wet weather yet. I don't plan on doing so deliberately but I do carry rain gear, in case. Given their tread pattern, I don't anticipate any problems with rain.

Jay.

I put a set on my Burgman 400. For the first 200 miles or so, they stunk on rain grooves....headshake and so on...but were otherwise good. As they've worn in, I've noticed they seem to be working a bit better on the rain grooves. Otherwise, no complaints...they handle well and seem to be wearing well also.

Glad you guys are happy with these tires! Some take a bit longer to wear-in than others maybe the case here.

I tried these for two consecutive tire changes, They were excellent on dry clear roads, but were absolutely terrible in rain. Like scary bad.

The first set was in the dry season, my second set was in the wet summer, and in the rain I would sometimes spin-out pulling away at lights or slide on corners.

I'm on my second set of City Grips and have had no issues.
Power Pure was also good.

I've got a pair of Shinkos on right now. I'll agree with everything Jay said. Haven't been in the rain much so I can't add to that. The one ride I did in the rain never made me think they would slip. The front tire does sing a bit right around 60 mph, which turns into a howl when you lean it over at that speed in sweeping curves. Doesn't seem like a loss of traction; I'm guessing its something to do with the tread pattern. Other than the noise, I've come to believe they are as good as any other tire I've had on the Swing (Diablo, Metzler, City Grip, IRC, Power Pure) with one caveat. I won't know what kind of mileage I'll get because I picked up a nail soon after getting them and will need to replace the rear in the next eight weeks to pass inspection. My guess (I have 3000 miles on them right now) is that they would go less than 5000 miles, perhaps as little as 4000 miles. For comparison purposes, most tires I've had would get me just about 6000 miles, with the Power Pures barely getting 5000 miles.

A friend purchased Shinko's (not sure what model) even though the dealer called them Sh*tko's! They ride nice, wear even and are quiet on his 400cc Majesty but he rarely rides in the rain. I think the dealer was getting a kick-back on another brand, hence the trash talk, but I've heard others call them the same thing. I personally hate Vee-Rubber tires. I call them Pee-Rubber.

I replaced my rear tire at 18000 miles. I got 7000 miles out of it. No better, but no worse than previous tires I've had. The front still has plenty of tread. I searched for a local supplier, Canadian, but no luck finding one.

Sidewinder can I ask what city grip you`ve put on the front please.

Its it a 120/70 14, I can`t find the 120/80 in that size, as I mentioned in a front springs thread I find the City grip on the back really transforms the rear comfort wise and an SC pure on the front so will be sticking with Michelins.

I nearly put a 120/70 14 City G on the front as the rear one was so good at absorbing bumps etc.

I wonder what the best tyre is for the Silverwing on that roads absorby type thing ?
