I have a shinko 003, I noticed the speed rating said 168. JUst wondering exactly what that means. Especially since the bike goes well over that.
I saw the same thing and I dont get it either. Competition Accessories ad says the 003 (AND the 005) are Z rated, and then in the description, it says they're W rated to 168.I have a shinko 003, I noticed the speed rating said 168. JUst wondering exactly what that means. Especially since the bike goes well over that.
no actually a (w) or (y) is a higher rating then a z z only means above 148..the actual rating is elsewhere on the tire the (z) in the tire size description means only above 148 a (y) is the highest rating but the (w) is the highest you will see on a dot tireThey can take sustained speeds in excess of 200mph, which is almost like a Z+ rating.
must have been a fluk i see the ultra soft versions do it 207 times a week at the drag strip, however Im very glad that when that happend to you, you didnt die and are now here to tell us about itI use to have the Shinko 003 190/50/zr17. Great tire but it blew on me when I tried to get it to 200mph. Scary huh?
