Hey Cookie, I got some nobles on the front but the SM rear is sweet.

first set on my 800 Vulcan is the shinko E270 in black in 5.00 x 16 - price in Europe is about 120 Euros - road performance was fine but I never drive faster than about 80 mph/130 km/h




another set of the E270 shinkos - just one with whitewall




Firestone Champion Deluxe - these rubbers go for about 220 Euros - needed a lot of weight for the trueing - hit the rain 2 times and was pretty slippery but cool lookin` tyre




Finally I got jap-made ALLSTATE Dirtmans on my bike - these rubbers look and ride awesome but are about 260 Euros each - I picked them in switzerland coz I couldn`t find a retailer in Germany

recommended concerning performance but way too pricey





AVON MK - I rode them during my time in china on one of my bikes - back then they where below 100 Euro - I had to take them to China in my suitcase - performance was good - meanwhile the rubber got kinda hard





finally shinko E240 - the performance of this tyre was worst of all of the brands/types I have been driving before - due to the more square shaped profile handling especially in curves was lousy - even on my 24 hp china-boxer - not recommended

performance was even worse with the E240 on front- and tailend



on the other ride I had the E240 shinko combined with AVON Speedmaster on the frontend which worked remarkably better




Hope that helped ...

Thanks for the info - square edge profile not good. Speedmasters seem to have a good reputation, only tried one on the front so far.
