Yo, guys, since this is THE tire thread, and I'm in NEED of tires for the bike I just bought (these poor bastards are 9 years old!!) I'm here to ask for a good ole' recommendation!
Pretty sure I'm not going to use this adventure bike AS an adventure bike. A grassy field or dirt/gravel driveway or road here or there, but mostly street riding. Street riding everywhere. And I want some good stick with that, long-lasting (the bike is my daily, now), and for it not to feel like a slick on wet pavement when I DO go onto those dirt/dusty areas or that grassy field/hill.
Completely worthless opinion when it comes to this recommendation, as tires are for performance and safety, but, I REALLY like the look of Shinko 705's. A less worthless note, is that I think my needs would come out to be a 90/10 or perhaps 95/5 onroad-offroad ratio. But probably no more than 85/15, like, ever. And 80/20 tires look like they're getting into the "sacrificing comfort, noise, and street grip for dirt performance" area.
Lastly, I ride in Florida, and plan to ride year round and (mostly) rain or shine. So they have to be good in the wet, but I assume most recs I'll get here ARE since they'll at most be sport-touring tires, and probably not pure sport, or race tires.
; Need a rec for long-lasting 85%-95% tires that good in the wet, and good on the street. The bike is a k6 Wee, daily ridden as primary transportation, but I do wanna have fun and push the performance some, eventually.
