Currently on Shinko number two on the front wheel. The first was the 230 touring model - handled well, quiet, smooth, and reasonably sticky both on dry and wet pavement and handled a moderate amount of standing puddle water fairly well. Ultimately ran it for a little over 24,000 miles and wore it down to the nubs (Keep in mind that's mostly highway driving without a whole lot of in town cornering). Originally paid around 80 bucks at my local service shop.
Number two is the 733 model (new from what I understand). This thing is grooved to the hilt and channels water like a drainage ditch. I've gotten hosed by mother nature more in the past 3 weeks than I have in the past year combined. At one point I was doing about 45 and accelerating when I hit some standing water and barely noticed it. The 733 handled it like it was on a rail. Handles very well with little effort in the turns, sticks very well in both dry and wet and is very quiet. Only paid 52.00 for this one via Amazon Prime membership (reg retail is around 80 something).
The Michelin Power Commander II is on the rear and is a 170 series (one step above stock). Has a decent profile, good grooves for moving water and as near as I can tell, it hasn't failed me yet. Contrary to Michelin's claims though, I don't think this thing is as sticky as they think it is. I've had it break loose during a downshift or two (straight line only) and I've felt it slip a bit on wet pavement several times. That being said, I can't honestly say that I wasn't being more aggressive than I realize at those times. As to their claim about mileage longevity this one gets an overwhelming 5 stars from me. I've got over 12,000 miles on this thing with little appreciable wear. The ride is smooth and overall the handling from this tire is very responsive. Paid around 160.00 at the same shop as the Shinkos. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the Michelin but I am going to give the Shinko 734 rear tire a shot once the Commander II wears out - if it ever does.
Personally I think the Shinkos are a good purchase for the $$. None of us is particularly rich ( I don't think) and considering the manufacturing process and equipment was originally Yokohama, I'm pretty comfortable using these tires (Shinko has been around since 1948 so they must be doing something right) and considering the distances and remoteness of my commuting routes, that's not something I take lightly.
Just my .02 worth. Hope this benefits someone here. Ride safe everybody!
