New front tire.

It always amazes me how different a new front tire feels at first.

I put the Shinko 705's on...front and back. I like the ride...time will tell about the wear.

Funny about that. When I first put on the front 705 it seems to feel a bit weird but wears in very quickly and gets comfortable.
The fronts give me 10-12K miles. Maybe more, I need to keep the receipt with miles written down to be sure.

I got 9k out of the stock TW rear and changed the front at 10k (probably could have gone another 2k but not worth waiting). To me, all new front tires feel "weird"...even when I've replaced with the same tire.

Yep... and a 620 mile day ride total to go see it. Try to find the truck owning those big tires in the picture :-)
