Shinko Tires recommendation

Post by Artie »

Going to replace my front and rear tires on my 1979Z
What Shinko model do you think is best?
there is such wide variety of models wondering what others are using
Size wise for the front 110-90-19 & for the Rear 120-90-18 I believe is best choice and is what I’m running now
TIA

Tour Master. Highly recommended. Relatively inexpensive for the performance delivered.

Even with the 100, you might have to deflate the front tire to get it past the fender bolts.

Hey JR aren’t you concerned with the tire expanding when hot, enough to shave the inner front of the fender? Seen it before!

I’m running a 100-90-19 now and I don’t recall any clearance issues with fender bolts?

I’ve got a similar pic from rear great shot huh!

For the umpteenth time, DO NOT run a 110 tire on the front of a CBX!

I've installed several sets of the Shinko Tourmasters and don't recall the 100 front being quite that tight. Maybe it's just the photo angle.
