I must say the Shinkos performed extremely well. But because of the terrain after about 3000kms my rear is down 50% but the front is still 90%
Was lucky not to get even one flat!
I would buy a pair again
Ditto my experience with these tires. I took 705's on a week-long ride through a mix of slab, hardpack, mud and loose gravel with some friends using TKC80's. The TKC's were certainly superior in the mud but I had enough traction to keep up 95% of the time. The tread is a good compromise between the slab and mud to meet my requirements. They won't last like K60 Scouts I'm sure but I also will buy again.

And my rear Shinko 705 failed today!! Ballooned out in a few places.
