shinko is well know in the drag scene, but you won't find any knee draggers running them

I have an 003 it's been a great commuter tire with the occasional blast up the mountain. I would not buy them if you use allot of RPM cornering they slide pretty easy. I only have the rear with 4000 miles so far about half gone.

I went out for a ride with a friend who is also an ex-racer on his 07 600RR & he was running Shinko's - I could not believe it. He said he loves them, and they work great on the street. I do not know what model, but he was hauling ass & I was dumbfounded. He has a Penske shock & Traxxion front-end with cartridges.

i'm gonna have to call bullshit on this one...if you're refering to the 003 as far as drag racing goes anyway.......went 9.69 1/4 mile at stock length on one
read from above.. clearly stated that these are made for drag racing which is what you were doing, they don't stick for shit in corners.:popcorn2:

I said it once and I'll say it again. I ran the 5's and they fucking suck. The 3's are much better from what I hear, but if you want a cheaper tire with good stick for the street try the BT-016. Some people love em, some hate em. I think for the street you can't beat em.

Word to the wise: If you do get the 16's pay close attention to the numbering. There are OEM 16's that come on ZX-10's and I believe some zuks, they are NOT the tire you want. The easiest way to tell is the tire will be labeled 190/55R J or some shit like that. Don't get the ones with the letter behind the number. They don't have the same compound and aren't anywhere near the traction level of the production tire.

An example
Go to this link and try to select a tire size. You'll notice the tires with the OEM code following the number.
