They are 100% better than they were just 3 years ago. Not a pilot power by any stretch but they are decent for the street.

i had a rear on my bike about a year ago. they felt like bridgestone battle axes. but if you gonna do track or canyons def not shinkos. they are cheap and just like beef cake said you get what you pay for. but if you just commute then yeah they are good tires.

very good commuting tires imo, I dont do alot of hard riding, but they've been on my f4i for the better part of 2 months and i have no complaints. 1 through 10 i give them a well earned 7.

Ive been running them since I got my bike which has been around 1k miles maybe of alot of hard riding.. 0 problems, few times they have spun under hard accel but other than that not bad.

the battleaxe's that were on before were great as well imo, i never got to push them since i barely have a chance to visit our local strip or track, but in the everyday use and commuting they performed very well. My buddy jorge swears by them thought, lol, he practically lives at our local strip/track.

My buddy got a single season of commuting on shinkos on his yami. he didnt ride that many miles, around 2k miles last year if that. and the center is flat. from that observation i really wouldnt recommend them myself.

He's gotta be burning 'em out everywhere cause the center of the schtinko is rather hard compound ...

Okay for commuting, crappy for any leaning. Would not recommend.
