I've always heard this - but LOTS of knowledgeable people run shinkos on the back and different tires on the front.

I paid $58.00 for the frt and $85.00 for the rear for my Shinko F005's, they may have have gone up a little on the price.

Multiple reasons:

Tires are eccentially spring-load bearing devices. If the front is softer then the rear, the suspension and bike frame will start a binding effect that will basically cause the suspension to push the front tire in a bounce fashion ahead as ridden.

A softer rear tire will tend to connect and track tighter then a harder front, thus causing an understeer effect and can even lead to a slip out condition, especially if the load in a corner is redistributed to the front.

Running same-model tires is kindofda 'easy way out.' Easy combos are the bt016/21 option many are running.

Tire etching, poor wear and stability are effected.




Maybe some more experienced riders/track/strip peeps can explain it better then my lil knowledge.

sounds good. I don't push too hard - so I think I'll be OK. Others in the industry I've spoken to today had VERY different opinions.
