Shinko Tourmaster tires, very impressed so far
alright so I'm trying to put an order in for these tires...and I have a really dumb question here...on my front/rear tire the only numbers I can find are...

Front Tire: MT90B1671H
Rear Tire: MV85B1577H

What size tires should I put an order in for?

Thanks!

Front: 130/90-16 67H

Rear: 150/90-15 74H

What the numbers mean:

130 = tire width in mm

90 = aspect ratio tire height to tire width
(this tire is 90% as tall as it is wide)

16 = tire's rimdiameter in inches

67 = the load rating of the tire (how many pounds of weight it is designed
to carry)higher number equals higher load rating (sorry, don't know
these rating by heart)

H = speed rating (H = 130 mph)

I have been using shinko 705's on my GS for a few years and like them a lot. Get around 8K on the rear. The wing had new tires when I bought it so haven't needed new tires yet.
