Put shinko SR777 heavy duty tires on my 74 cb750 3 yrs ago and gave to my youngest son.he still has over half tread left.he lives in Iowa and doesn't ride in winter.so I'm g going to give them a try on the wing.guy I ride with has them on his Venture for 6months and he likes the way they handle.and I liked them on the chopper.will keep posting on how the SR777hd hold up.

I would go with Avon's if you can get them in your size. I ran Avon"s Venom tires for years and found them to be a perfect dry weather tire and an excellent wet weather tire. Great traction in both. You might get a couple of thousand less miles a set but you will get positive traction in all weather conditions. My 06 wing had new E3s on it when I bought it and they are down right scary in wet weather. Can't wait to wear them out and get into a set of Stones.
