    For those that don't know who Yokohama is, they are a top tier Japanese tire mfr. They make Advans, and come OEM on some of the worlds fastest automobiles such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Lotus, Mercedes, Porsche, and of course Evo's .

    I had noticed that Yokohama had been absent from the street tire aftermarket for a while.
    Cool, now they're Shinko, good to know.

    I think i saw it in another thread that if you take the rim and tire it is like $20 for mounting and balancing.

    I went by and asked that same exact question about bringing in my own tire and rim, and I was told $45 for mounting and balancing if I didn't buy the tire from RGV Cyclestuff. I have found other places much more affordable.

    Thanks, I'd already PM'd Bonez asking for specifices like tube type or not etc. to get him a price.

    $45. seems high, even for me. Must have been something else in play to get a price that high. Or a mis-understanding. Even if bringing the bike in and not just the wheel, and the tire is purchased elsewhere, a front is never that high. It is normal though for prices to be a little higher when the tire is purchased elsewhere.

    Can you guys get me your best prices on a rear tire installed for my 96 magna, I think the stock size is 150/80. Try Shinko, dunlop, metzer. Don't know how wide we can go without getting into trouble with the brake stay rod.

    Shinko 11yrs old technology.
    In 1998 the Shinko Group purchased the motorcycle tire technology and molds from Yokohama Rubber Co.
    The Ultra Soft STEALTH tire is great for drag racing. The rest good for staights touring tires, curves slow down. Not real sport bike tires.
    Go with the Dunlop,Michelin

    But it gets the job done. I think most people understand that they aren't the top of the line (hence the deal), but they're still a good tire. Anybody who takes being competitive serious will give there tire choice serious consideration. For everbody else they are fine.
