Shinko 230 Tour Master (wear bars???)

Post by Solina Dave »

I've put 3600 kms. on my Shinko 230 Tour Master tires. I'm very pleased with their performance.
However I can't, for the life of me, locate the wear bars. There's a locating arrow on the sidewall, but after a close inspection, I don't see the bars.
Any chance that anyone else has encountered the same? I believe that some tire manufacturers don't apply a wear bar to their tires. But I'm sure their numbers are minimal.
Or maybe I'm just going blind! There's always that! :lol:
