Don't run these tires in the wet
November 26, 2012(vancouver, BC)
Bought them as they were recommended to me as a good all-around tire. They are downright dangerous in the wet, simply cannot ride them in the rain above 80kmh. Took them off after less than 2000kms and 2 rain rides - now I can't GIVE them away used. Nobody wants them; they seem to have a bad reputation. Worst MC tires I ever bought. Cheap yes, suitable for street riding? Maybe if your bike NEVER sees rain.

Decent tires, have them on my ktm 690smc, one thing I will say is it feels like your riding on Flintstone tires...haa, that aside they seem to stick pretty well once up to temp, I run them 29/29 have pretty good predictable feel when they are about to slip, don’t skip out like most tires.
Pretty decent tire

I bought my 2000 buell lightning millenium edition with a brand new shinko stealth on the rear, and I have to say it's been a great tire. It's not too slick in the rain, but it could be stickier. Overall I’d say 4 stars.
great tire don't listen to the naysayers

This tire is predictable, easy to mount, and sticky as sin. I can actually hear the tire peeling from the tarmac on hot days when backing up. Super stable in cornering and braking. Much superior to the Dunlop’s being replaced, as well as the Shinko Podium. Very fast break-in. The tire is a little squirmy until it breaks in, but that is about one ride. I don't know wet traction or tread life so I gave those both a 3. Plus they look amazing

The Shinko 003 stealth is by far the best gripping tire that I have had on my 06 Busa but the tread life is about 2200 miles. I am a moderate rider and sometimes like to go fast. I am trying the 005 now.

This tire has proved itself over and over again everywhere! My bike is a highly modified 04 ZX10R and is set up for serious riding. I ride hard all the time and that includes drag and for surely cutting up the corners! I have put them to the test to no end with no fails! Nothing else matters.

I installed this tire on my 07 gsxr 1000 with pcV, k&n, and half kr pipe, the tires works very good they soft-sticky and good on corners. Great tires.

I have a 1000 RR and I have ran a ton of tires and these bad boys are off the hook. Grab like no other and the cost is unbeatable. I will NOT run anything different. Now wet and cold is not to great but when its nice they're unstoppable.

I use this tire on my drag bike and picked up a full second on my time and one more gear down the 1/8th mile strip. Since I don't turn I only gave a 1 for cornering and wet traction a 1. Don't know about life since I only ran one weekend so far.

GREAT TIRE! takes about one good ride to break both front and back tire in. I will post how much like them on facebook. Also tell every rider I know to buy them and ALL CLUBS I meet.
