Shinko "Smoke Bomb" Tires Announced

Review Summary

January 18, 2011 – How about this: the Shinko Smoke Bomb tire! Available in blue, red or purple smoke colors.

That’s right — not an April Fool’s prank! The Smoke Bomb tires will pretty up your burnouts (or make you even more obnoxious, depending on your point of view).

Spin ’em up and when they reach a certain temperature, the smoke changes color.

The tires are based on the Shinko 005 Advance radial. It has the same tread design as the 005 and a similar intermediate rubber compound. They also feature Kevlar belting as do all Shinko Advance tires.

The Shinko Smoke Bomb tires are DOT approved and come in 180/55ZR17 and 190/50ZR17 sizes. Shinko says they should be available sometime this Fall.
