Re: Shinko 777 HD
Just so were all clear here, the directions Shinko Has posted etc are written that way for liability. The tire listed is FINE for the LT because it meets the criteria. The tires BMW lists are that way because they were there at the time all this was posted. Things are not going to be updated immediately every time something new comes out. The tire meets the load rating criteria etc which IS meeting the manufacturers recommendations. Shinko makes excellent drag racing tires, excellent tires for touring etc, im willing to bet this tire will probably do well also. Not sure why people are getting so fired up, aftermarket items are totally fine as long as requirements are met. Yup, I'm new here, but dad was a bike mechanic my entire life, HD school graduate, and later factory trained on Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, AND BMW. Tires should be great, give em a ride and let us know what you think.
