I have not had the opportunity to mount the tires yet but the tread looks perfect as well as the softness of the compound. They feel like they will get tons of traction. I will post an actual review after I get them mounted and tested.
They arrived much faster than I anticipated after I emailed David and actually placed the order. He gave me great advice and is very knowledgeable in the industry. That goes a long way when someone takes the time to communicate and share knowledge with their customers.
We've been testing the Shinko mini racing tires for over two years now and are excited to announce that they are now available for sale in the US!
DHM has been tracking and racing the Honda Grom since 2014 when they were released. We have ridiculous amounts of tire data over the years so it's business as usual; we only sell what we use! The Shinko 12" tires are DOT approved and they are the standard for any of our bikes that see street use along with track use. They have won races in a field of slick tires and are still a great overall street tire for those group rides or quick snack runs. They will handle high heat on the track at lower pressures as well as normal street pressures for regular riding.
Available in 100/90-12 for the front and 120/80-12 for the rear. Don't be fooled by the narrower sizes than stock, these sizes offer more grip than any 120 front and 130/140 rear on the market, while also offering excellent tip-in for cornering.
