I've had 3 CB 750 Customs and a Suzuki 750 and used both Shinko and Kenda. I liked the Kenda's, better wear and ride (12-14,000 mls.) This is my first Wing so I'm not sure about how they will do, and look forward to other opinions as well. I'm considering the Kenda K657 challenger's, I know they meet the weight and speed ratings for the Wings.

ON the 1980 we went with Dunlop D404's...But I would've prefered Avon Venoms if they came in the right size for that bike...Your bike may have a different size wheel than the '80 does ...I am using the Shinko Tour Masters on my GS650 cruiser..but they are new to me so I have no expereience with them yet..they look good...

Hi there

I just put Shinko 712 both front and rear on my Wing, I´ve only put some 350 kilometers on them and they feel great.
Yesterday I took a ride and the temprature here in Iceland is very low these days, yesterday the temp was from +2 degrees celsius and it went down to -5 degrees celsius :o :o
The grip was good all the way and the tires felt just like when I first rode on them and then the temp was 10-12 degrees celsius.
How long they last I don´t know but they sure are good for now.
