Just ordered Shinko 777...
...120/90 18 for my Suzie.
Anybody have experience with this size? I currently have a 110/80 18, did the math and its BARELY bigger, about 3/4 of an inch high at the axle and less than a quarter inch in width. Just curious if anybody knows first hand how this tire will affect my handling.

Late but just saw this. :)
Have you installed them? These tires are good but how come the size is not exact. I haven't used them but saw on fellow bikes and they all found it good.

RE: Just ordered Shinko 777...
turns out the tire that WAS on there had been the one that wasnt right. the new tire is the right size, feels a bit "heavier" i=coming out of the turns, but I like it. Actually I love it, I have never been happier with a set of tires in my life!!!

It's OK unless the tire police catch you with unmatched tires. Then it could be hell to pay. :-)

RE: Just ordered Shinko 777...
as long as they are both either bias or radial, i hear you shouldnt mix the two something about opposing forces...

I will go with shinko then.. Next year will replace both with shinko pair. Dunlop goes bald too fast.

RE: Just ordered Shinko 777...
only time you cant have two different tires is on a car. like DOT says gotta be the same on the same axle. I ordered the Kenda brand tire for the rear a few days ago. but i have the stock dunlop up front
