Shinko Trials Tire

Anybody ever try a Shinko Pro 255 trials tire? The marketing description makes it sound like a competition radial trials tire, that's DOT rated. I bought one to use on my KTM in the rocks. Usually I'll take one of my worn Michelins or Dunlops, but didn't have any laying around.

I was able to buy this tire a little cheaper than a Dunlop, so I thought I would give it a go.

It is a round profile design, so less tire on the ground. A friend put one on his Sherco. He thought he had a motor issue, but the knobs were hitting the chain guard. I`m waiting for the new Dunlop GP.
Relentless hard on to remove the all day dab.

Tried one on my GG enduro. Removed it after one ride.
The tire was far to rounded to get much footprint on the ground and was not for me. Find it works better on smaller bikes, a friend has one on a Pampera and a 230L Honda, works well on both those bikes.
As for a trials bike.....never.
