What tyres does your S10 wear?

I used Torrance’s some 15 years ago when I had my BMW R1150GS and I was perfectly happy with them, both grip and mileage, but I changed to Michelin Anakees and never looked back. For the record, I have never had “cupping” on any of the tyres on any of the bikes that I have owned. I often wonder if “cupping” is caused by incorrect tyre pressures and/or incorrect suspension settings whether it is damping or pre-load.

I had the Anakee on my Tiger 800. Nice tire but too much noise. I have had most of the top 90/10 type tires and without a doubt the Trailmax Meridian are the best. It's almost like a sport touring tire with deep grooves.

I run the Shinko 804/805 as my primary tire but I’ve used a set of the Scorpion Trail 2’s and really enjoyed them. The Pirelli was super sticky, lasted over 8K miles (no unusual wear) and rode very quiet. Probably could have got the rear tire to 10K but had a need for knobbies and swapped in the Shinkos. My only complaint of the Scorpion Trail was/is the price.

For most of the life of my S10 I've run Shinko 705's. Back in 2018 I put a set of Mitas E07's on for a trip, and really liked them for touring. When Mitas changed to the E07+ I went back to the Shinkos. Now that Mitas has reintroduced the original formula for the E07, I just reinstalled a set of those.

Anakee 3's for about 55 of the 60k miles on my S10, I've never had an issue with noise or vibrations, and i find them quite quick to turn in but more importantly just super predictable in all conditions, get about 6k out of a pair before the rear is square and the front is chamfered.

Now my 701 is kitted out the S10 won't do anythign more than hard-pack dirt in the dry (not that it did a tonne more than that beforehand) so I might try something a bit more roady & long lasting next time.

Currently running the Motoz Tractionator GPS front and rear. They're wearing well: at 5K plus the rear is @ half way through, front not even touched. Not a fan though, bit too noisy and viby for me (mostly tarmac riding).

Going to burn the rear off on an up-coming cross country trip and then it's back to the Shinko 705's for me. Say what you want about the Shinkos, I get 10K from a rear and 20K from the front, never experienced any of the Shinko failure horror stories (close to 40K total so far on 705's including a cross country trip or two) and for less than $180 I can have a fresh set delivered to my door.

I don't get anywhere close to that mileage out of my Shinko tires (more like half that), but I do find them to be a pretty decent all around tire for me. Guys on line complain about how they ride in the wet but I've never experienced that, and I've seen my share of wet weather on two wheels. My only real gripe with them is that some of my front tires have worn in weird ways. After about 6000 miles on the last one, I started getting a shimmy in the handlebars, and the odd wear pattern was easily visible on the tire. The shimmy went away as soon as I put the new front E07 on.

Just had a pair of anakee wilds fitted. Can’t ride it yet, still recovering and mostly bed bound but she’s there waiting for me when I’m ready
