Title: Shinko 777 tread depth
Post by: CoolBreeze on September 29, 2014, 07:04:53 pm
I know I read it somewhere but I can't to find it now. Does anyone kknow the tread depth of the Shinko 777 in 150/80/16/when new. I was not smart enough to measure it before putting some miles on mine.

At 800 miles, mine was .288 in.  I'd have to check my notes for my last reading at 2K miles, but I do remember it calculated out to 9K (total) of tread life.

My fourth 777 is at the shop now, awaiting tomorrow morning to get mounted up on the rim. I've been getting about 10-12,000 out of them, not babied.

Can you get a tread depth measurement before you put many miles on that new 777?. I am trying to see if I can calculate my possible mileage.

Well get that thing running instead of sleeping all morning.  :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

A burnout party might go well with the tech session, along with drone video.

Yeehaw!!
