I'm one of them. I find them to be better than 705s on the road.

How does the 805 compare to the 705 for mileage? Any idea? Funny thing is I found your video review last night when searching google. Nice video by the way.

Re: Shinko 804/805 anyone

I get 8k out of a rear805. I get 10ishk out of a 705. Fronts vary but I usually replace them due to irregular wear instead of low tread.

The update video in post 12 covers mileage a little.

I was really impressed with the short time I spent on my new 804 front today. Seems like a good tire. Hope it continues to be this good for a while.

Re: Shinko 804/805 anyone

I actually went back to 705s when I moved back to Texas because I wanted the extra mileage and most of our "off pavement" stuff here is county roads. There's enough unpaved county roads out east here that I'm going back to 804/805 on my next change which is pretty much here.

Re: Shinko 804/805 anyone

I got a minor shimmy at 75 mph on bad chipseal yesterday, but otherwise the new tires seemed as good or better than stock for 200 miles.

Especially, off pavement.

Re: Shinko 804/805 anyone

The Shinko 804 / TKC 80 rear combo did great in the dirt/sand/granite/clay roads in the Texas Hill Country this weekend.

They saved my bacon. If I had been on my stock tires, I would have been down several of times, especially in the sand, which is evil by the way.
