    Yeah, if they get 10k I will be stoked because they are a bit cheaper than the T30's. If they get 12k or better.... smiles all around!


    I just checked my logs and on the last 3 T30's I had this was the mileage I got out of them:
    10500
    8600
    9957

    So 10k was the max on that tire that I was able to get. I never had a chance to try the EVO. I think I managed to get 11k out of a BT23, but I no longer have those records, that was on my first bike. I will update again. I am still sorta shocked I did 7k miles since April....

    I just changed the tire over the weekend, I put another Shinko on the rear, I got 9654 miles off this one and probably could of force another 500 out of it, but the tires are so cheap I did not feel I needed to get all my pennies out of it.
    So, it is comparable to the T30 as far as tire life goes, in fact when you do the math from the last 3 T30's I owned, the Average Life Span on them was 9685.

    So, for the price and the performance I need for my commuting, the Shinko is the perfect tire. I am very happy with them.

    Also of note, the Shinko Front has 7060 miles on it and it still looks brand new.

    Glad to hear you're having good success with the Shinkos. The climate you ride in and rate at which you go through tires makes these a perfect choice, IMO.

    So, My Front finally gave out and I got 13,859 miles out of it. I probably road it 500 miles more than I should have..... But that is just over a week of commuting for me, so it went out pretty quick, in fact when I pull the wheel off the front was flat.... not sure how I rode on a flat tire, but I did.... sketchy.

    So here is my mileage comparison:
    Shinko Front - 13,859 Miles
    Bridgestone T30 Front - 13,094 Miles
    Bridgestone T30 Front - 11,000 Miles
    Bridgestone T30 Front - 11,860 Miles

    So the Bridgestones compound must have improved over the years because I had a jump of nearly 2k from the first 2 I ran to the last one before I switched to Shinko.

    I am pretty sure I will stick with Shinko from here on out, same/better mileage for less cost.

    Thanks for the update! You certainly do rack up the miles!

    I'm running the Shinko 016 Verge front and rear.. only about 500 miles on them, but I'm loving them so far!

    you are welcome. I am just 350 miles shy of 100k at the moment. I am stoked at how reliable this bike has been for all those miles, just keeps running.

    Just replaced my rear, 9,662 miles on that tire, and I could have pushed it another week or so. Put a Fresh Shinko Raven on. Bike has 102k miles now.
