The drag racers love 'em cause they're cheap.
They burn through rear tires super quick, and the Shinko's are essentially throw away tires.
About the cheapest premium multi-compound tires are Bridgestone and Continental.
Both are usually within around $10-20 of each other.
The old Pirelli Diablo single compound series (which is still being made) are a very good inexpensive tires.
I ran them for years with no complaints, and currently have a new set on my 'Busa.
The complete set was only $190, rather than $200+ for just a rear.
I'd see if anyone is having a sale on these.

Shinko

I've had a set on my bike and they seem to go pretty quickly. I had the 003's they stick when I needed them to and spun when I wanted them to. I still keep them as a back up if something goes wrong with my michelins. I'm running 2ct on the front and Road Pilot 2's which are 2cts on the rear! I've had the rears on for a while now and won't go with anything else now for the back! They hold up really well!

If you do any sort of agressive turning stay away from the Shinko's.

I dont run them on my big bikes but I run them on my motocross, supermoto race bike and my supermoto stunt bikes. As you can see I put alot of trust in them. Pulling stoppies at 60+ is no problem on the Shinko 003's or 009's.

Just put a set of Dunlop Sportmax Q2's on this weekend, and so far they're not too shabby.
