I bought a new set of Shinko 230 Tour Master Tires, the front is 100/90/19 and the rear tire is 150/80/16. But after I bought them, I got a better deal on a set of tires that I wanted more. So, I bought those other tires and I decided to sell the Shinkos. The Shinkos have never been mounted at all and are still in the box. I'm asking 200.00, along with free shipping, in the USA. If I don't sell them, I can always use them as back ups. But I would prefer to sell them, instead.

What are the date codes on the tires? I may be able to help you with the front tire but the rear is too big for my bikes.

Where would I find that info be on the tire? I bought them new from Motorsports, I think about three weeks ago. Please let me know where to look, so that I can find out that info for you and get back to you with it.

Look on the sidewall for something that looks like this.
This is from a Bridgestone tire and it may vary from brand to brand. The four-number code may also be in an impression by itself.
In this case, the code "1611" means it was made in the 16th week of 2011.

That means they were made between June 15 and June 19, assuming week 1 started on January 6.

That's a very fresh tire which is good news. The fresher, the better TUP

Do you need to sell them as a set? As mentioned, I can use the front one if you want to sell it.

Maybe you could PM me with a price.

If you want the front tire? How does 86.00 bucks sound. The tire cost me 72.00 bucks. I got free shipping because my purchase was over a 100.00 bucks and I live in California. So that breaks down to what I paid for the tire along with California's sells tax, that would be on that one tire. If you bought just the front tire. But if you buy both tires, I'll let you have them both for 150.00, along with the free shipping too. Which will come out of my pocket along with the insurance, and the sign for service also. I'll send it or them, by way of USPS Priority Mail. Because, they'll get their a lot quicker, than FedeX Ground or UPS Ground.

Actually I'm wrong on that. On that tire I payed 62.00 bucks for the front tire. That was before they hit me with the California sells tax. But if you want the front tire? I'll let you have it for 78.00 bucks. But I can't go any lower than that. Because, I'm going to have to pay to ship it to you, along with paying for the insurance, and the signature thing. If you decide you don't want the tire or the pair. It's all good.

If your interested in the Shinko Tires? I'm selling them as a set for two hundred bucks. That covers the shipping along, with the insurance, the tracking numbers, along with your signature. To make sure that the items were received. At first I thought that I'd go as low as what I paid for them and then throw in free shipping. Which would come out to around, 155.00 for just the tires alone. Without the shipping. The tires are good to store, for a year or two. But no longer than that. Since these tire are very freshly made and are new tires. If I don't sell them, I'll just hang onto them, as a set of back ups. Since they were made in June or July of 2020. They'll be good, for at least a year or two. That way, I won't have to buy any tires for a couple of years. I really like my new Perili MT66's much better, than those stock Avon Cobras. The Perilis were a very good buy, They track very well also. I don't know how'll they'll do in the rain. But then again, I don't ride in the rain either. I keep my bike garaged. But so far, I really like these tires a lot. IMO, they are a better tire than the Avon Cobras were! They give you a very comfortable ride and hold the road very nicely also. I really like this tire a lot and the price was really good also. I see myself buying this tire again, in the future. After I wear out those Shinko 230 Tour Masters. When my Perilis MT66s wear out and I have to put on some new rubber on, I'll already have it. Then, after I wear those out. I'll go back to the Perili MT66's or I'll give the Michelin Commander II's or III's a try. But so far, I really like these Perili MT66s a lot. I'll see how they hold up in the long run and give out a better review on the tires, in the near future.

That didn't quit come across, like I wanted it to. What I meant to say, was. That I've decided to keep the Shinko tires that I bought. Unless someone wants to pay two hundred bucks for both tires. You can go online and probably find them cheaper. But, your going to have to pay the taxes on them. Depending in what state that you live in. I will not ship overseas or out of the USA either. Plus, the shipping is not cheap, with the insurance, along with the priority mail also. To make sure that the tires are signed for by somebody.
They're good for two years. So I'm just going to keep them myself, if nobody buys them. They're good for two years and they were made in or around July of this year. Then when the time comes around, that I need some more new tires? I'll still have a fresh set of new tires wrapped up in my garage. Then, when they wear out. I'll buy some more Perilis MT66 tires, at that time. I really like these tires a lot, so far. I fill that they are a much better tire, than those stock Avon Cobras IMO. Right now though, I've got my mind set on buying some Craftsman metric tools though, along with a tire changing and balancing stand. That I saw on CG for around 125.00 bucks.
