shinko stealth tires

have any of you guys used shinko stealth tires?
shinko stlthrear 310x310
i saw a review of them in some bike mag today and thought they looked like some pretty sweet tires for the money, but i'm pretty curious as to how they handle with street performance in real world texas weather like we have been having lately.
about $85 for a front tire and $135ish for a rear seems like a cool deal to me.

I have the shinko on my rear, but because it's awesome for drag racing, it's cool, i haven't had any problems

They suck for curves....sidewall is soft(on the rears) and and wallow like a pig in turns.. They are awesome for the strip though.....If you don't try to push it in the turns, you will be fine with them. I ran em on the rear for a while and went back to pilots for street riding, then use the u-softs at the strip.... Not a bad tire for the money though...

rode 1200 miles on a vfr with shenkos (not sure which kind) through twisty roads and various conditions.

zWorst set of tires I have ridden on, the grip felt vague, they sucked in the rain, did not feel real inspiring, etc.....However sliding around on the tires without doing anything crazy was pretty cool....

That's $210 at a minimum, right?

For another measly $10 I would get some BT002 Ride Smart for $220 shipped.

i was asking about wet traction because there have been several days where i would go to work and it looked great outside, and 12 hours later, when my shift was over, it would be raining
i want my next set of tires to be cheap, but good, and last me at least half a year with short commutes. no track days. i'm a noob still, and the tires i have now are 2nd hand that i got off of a dude on svrider.com for cheap. they are some pretty nice tires, in my noob opinion. i'd like to have a researched, thought out idea ready for when i make my next tire purchase.

If you are looking for great wet traction and want some good wear length and also pretty good grip, take a look at the pilot roads. Great tractions for the twisties and superior traction on wet houston roads.
