Yep, definitely different than the Kenda Big Blocks. Wonder how they get away with naming them the same. Are they the same company underneath?
These cost actual real money (close to $250 a set, about the same as the Kendas). I would hope they actually last longer than the Kendas, which are well-known to be very short-lived.
The Continental TKC80 are about $290 a set, so I suspect a lot of people are just going to cough up the extra $40 to get something proven. But Shinko makes some good stuff -- if these beat or equal the Contis in tread life, they could do well.
