So, yesterday I purchased a set of the Pirelli MT66 tires from Revzilla for $185 shipped. I decided to forego whitewalls on the Shinko 777 and go with the advice from Dennis. I'll take handling over looks any day and Dennis has given me good advise on a half dozen repairs over the last few years.
Tires will arrive here on Tuesday. I have the tire tools and now that I've done three sets on other bikes, I'll change the rubber. I've used dynabeads on my other bikes with good results. I ordered a bulk pack of Counteract beads this time.
Thanks again Dennis. I will write an update after my install and a few rides. It may take awhile, as they are predicting a few inches of snow tonight, up here on the mountain! Thanks to all! JD
