The max load and speed rating of a tire is at its maximum pressure. The load rating for the 705 is the same as Tourance, Pirelli, etc. (59/69 front/rear) So you can look at it the other way too. That the 705 requires less pressure for the same load rating.

True. Lets see how they hold up at such a low pressure though?

Sure. Though it can't be a low pressure if the DOT certified the load rating. The certification of the load rating is based on tire temperature rise at that load and pressure.

Or, perhaps the factory plugged in the 33psi 'mold insert' instead of the 42psi insert (certainly a guess).

The 705 might be a bias ply tire. I'm pretty sure the TKC80 is a bias ply tire. Can someone check their TKC80 rear for load rating and max pressure?

My Shinko 705's came in yesterday like planned. Unfortunately, I'm leaving this evening on a TAT trip on my KLR and I won't be installing these till I get back on June 1st. I will have a full review in a couple weeks though plus a 6k mile trip at the end of June. BTW, I've got 80k+ between 3 vstroms, so I should be able to give a decent review on how these compare to many other tires I've ran over the years, especially the Anakee and Tourance tires.

Here are some pics










Yep, max load is at 33psi?

Chaparrel has them on their site now too, $42 for a front and $56 for a rear. At those prices I might just order a set for future use.

Wow, they have them quite a bit cheaper then MSS, especially the rear. - Chaparral

Chaparral offers free shipping on $149 and over (But not sure if that includes tires or not? I haven't ordered from them before). If you order 2 rears and 1 front, it puts you just over that limit!

Front - $41.85
Rear - $53.85
41.85 + 53.85 + 53.85 = $149.55! $30 cheaper then I got my tires for!

Thats just ridiculously cheap. I hope they end up being nice tires.

Someone needs to send MSS an email letting them know how much cheaper CHap has them or they may price match.

They offer free shipping over $100... free second day air over $150... my order just came to $95.7 for the set... had to get some new valves just to bump it over $100 for free shipping.

NOTE: Fronts are listed as not avail until 5/26, FYI. A spare set in the garage for $100 may just be good insurance...

Mine should arrive tomorrow!

I should have bought them from Chapparal (much cheaper!) but instead I got them from Motorcycle Superstore. Regardless, the tires are still much cheaper than all the other brands I have purchased over the years.

I've been tracking their progress:

Medford, OR to Roseburg, OR to Portland, OR to Hermiston, OR to Salt Lake City, UT to Commerce City, CO to Kansas City, KS to Earth City, MO to Doraville, GA to Jacksonville, FL to Fort Lauderdale, FL to my humble abode (tomorrow).
