Free good quality tires (Tri Cities pickup only)

So last year we were doing a bunch of tire testing and reviews and the final set of tires I was working on was the Shinko Raven 009 tires.

They have ~800 miles on them they are still 95% on both the front and back and they are free. Note, these tires are not designed for tight twisties even though you can run them without issue. These are excellent tires for those that want to do long distance riding and expect to get a good 9000 miles from a tire. Their profiles means you spread the weight across a wider foot print so you do not experience the center wear as much as you do on a standard sport tire.

They are in Richland, they are free and my hope is if there is someone in need of a set of tires...they are yours. I will be more than happy to meet you at the Uptown on George Washington. PM me and we can work out a time.

UPDATE: Seems I left one important point...size 120 Front/200 Rear (17" rim size)

Bump as if they don't go this week they go to the dump for disposal. These are free and in excellent shape.

If I sent you prepaid labels, would you be willing to drop it off at FedEx? (office or the airport)?

If you need someone to take them to FedEx, I live in Richland and work in Pasco, so I'd be happy to take them for you. In fact, I can see FedEx from my office window.

That would be awesome. Once I get the lables, I will band the tires together and get them ready to go. I will pm you for a place we can make the trade!

Sounds good. As I recall you live very close to me (I live on Sunset St.) so I'd be happy to stop by and pick them up.

Err.. Actually I might have to pass on this D:

My stock tire size is 180.... I think a 200 is too much for the rear.

No problem, more than likely it will fit but you have to go with what you are comfortable with.

Still available till Thursday...

I personally would not go that big from a 180.

What's your bike? The jump from 180 to 200 is not as big as you think.

To throw a wrench into things, Shinko recommends a 6.25" rim width for their 200 series tire.

A 6" rim off a 1000cc bike is probably OK.

5.5" rim from a 600cc is probably questionable.

Otherwise, it is the same diameter as a 180/55 tire, only wider. Below is a link to the fitment chart, click the Sizes and Specs tab.
