Shinko 705 vs Anlas CapraR: any opinions?

Hey folks. I'm just wondering if anyone has experience with one, or both of these tires. I'm not sure how well the Turkish Anlas's are distributed in the States yet, but in BC, at least, they're very competitively priced, compared to, say, the higher priced Tourance. The Shinkos look like they're great bang for the buck, but the Anlas's appear to be more state of the art, with their silica enriched compound, and slightly higher speed rating.
I'm currently running lightly used Pilot Road Trail's, which are wonderful road tires, but my reason for looking at these two, is to be able to take on some light FSR/gravel miles, maybe 10-20% max. (total off pavement newbie)

I've never heard of the Turkish brand, but I've used 705's on my last two tire changes, and I'm plenty happy with them. I'll continue to use them.

You'll find a lot of fans on here of the Shinkos (and some detractors). I've heard a lot of the standard complaints about Shinkos (excessive noise/vibration, poor performance on wet roads, delamination) and haven't experienced any of them. I've had them on interstate highways, dirt roads, and gravel, and think they perform very well.

In the states, Shinkos are about $84.00 for a rear. It's got to be tough to beat that price and still maintain quality.

My latest delivery of a Shinko was 103.97 buckos. I'm hoping to get 6K out of the one that has 4853 miles on it now.
Some folks with a gentle wrist get higher mileage.

The 705 is a great gravel/light dirt tire, maybe one of the best compromise tires I've ever put on a big bike, it's even decent in sand/mud if you're aired down. I stopped futzing around with other tires because it just works for 95% of the riding I do and is so inexpensive nothing else is worth gambling on.

So, there's my suggestion.

I'm figuring that the Anlas tires aren't in the States yet, but they've been in Europe, and elsewhere, with positive feedback. Here's a link to their X & R versions. The X is their Enduro, and the R is street oriented, for light off road. I think the R is speed rated to about 250kmh.

Looks a helluva lot like a slightly more aggressive Battlewing.
