    I got 5,000 miles out of a rear 163; the front is still going strong.

    Priced just a bit lower than the Shinko 705? For this type tire, the Shinko may be the one to beat.

    I looked at the 163 but it looked like it would wear faster,what kind of bike is it on ??.
    How does the 163 handle ??

    163 on back of my 1100gs, handles great.

    just over 2000 miles, and finally starting to show some visable wear in the center.
    good traction offroad, handles well onroad.

    great tire for $77
