Yokahama makes them, Shinko puts their name on them = off brand.SpeedWerks.com said:Actually ... that's not quite true. It's actually a Yokahama tire. We sell the hell out of them here at the shop.
You got a link to the ones you're looking at, OSP?
I was lookin' at these, but with the exception of that review above (which I had found), I couldn't find anyone saying anything really good about them... Most of what I have read talks about slow turn in and whatnot... I am thinking about just saying fluck it and getting 2ct's...I know one of their models are for drag racing, because the middle is very flat and not much side profile.

My concern with those is their apparent struggle in the rain... the tread patter is not confidence inspiring... the 005's look better for that...here ya go dlit and osp
you gotta air em down to get that flat footprint-i have a 180 on a 5.5 inch rim-probably the same setup u 2 have. not flat at all at reg psi, and i have the regular stealth 003, not the supersoft. that review i posted was for the regular stealth 003 as well.
never tryed the 005's, couldnt tell ya. ive ridden the 003's in the rain a few times with no trouble, but not hard, just cruising. dont deal with rain much here :wink:My concern with those is their apparent struggle in the rain... the tread patter is not confidence inspiring... the 005's look better for that...
