Anyone know which tires to put on a 2007 Honda shadow 750dc. The manual recommends front: 110/80 r19 and rear:160/80 r15 but I can’t find them anywhere online.

Shinko has the 777 in those sizes, it is a pretty good grippy tire wet or dry although it isn't the longest wearing because of it. I like them on my 750 ACE and will buy them again. Shop around prices vary. I definitely prefer them to the worn 7 year old Bridgestones that came on my bike although that's not a fair comparison. I went with new Bridgestone tubes though.

Just a thought: People often go with the 170/80-15 on the back of the Spirit, it is the standard size on the VT600 and VT750 ACE.

2001 Spirit - Modified. I also run 110/90-19 front and have used both 180/70-15 and the 170/80-15 the rear. No issues. I prefer the Shinko 230 Tour Master 180/70-15 for the rear and the Shinko 712 up front.. Both have great grip and I have gotten pretty good mileage out of them.

The 170/80-15 will lower your rpm's over the gear range and look beefier. 180/70-15 will raise your rpm's just a little tad. Buy your tires to how much you travel a season/year. I never have used Shinko's but never heard any thing bad just longevity. Pirelli's was my bias ply tire of choice do to better mileage and no issues with handling.

Nice comparison chart. Thanks

Run the shinko 777 on my 01 shadow spirit. I went a size up with no issues on the rear but the front had rubbing issues really bad. I fixed it by modifying the fender bracket but looking at it you wouldn't know it. From all the posts of people running the 777 in a 110/90-19 I'm the only one to have issues with rubbing. Fantastic tires otherwise and would purchase them again.

I got a quote last Saturday from a cycle shack for a set of shinkos 777 white wall tires for my 2002 Shadow ACE for $519 installed.

Sounds too high to me. Shinko's are not the expensive brand.
If the 2 tires are $300.00 why is there over $200.00 labor?

I would take the wheels off and have them mount and balance for much less.
