Tell me about Shinko SE890 Journey radials

My 05 C-10 acquired in Aug. was fitted with Avon ST's front and rear. Both tires are badly cupped from what I can only think was habitual under inflation from the previous owner. I'm currently running 39 psi front and 41 psi rear. I will need to change them out before next years riding season begins. I'm not opposed to getting another set and keeping them properly inflated. I am however, interested in hearing from those that have used the Shinko Journey tires and learning if they might be another tire I might want to consider.
Thanks in advance for any insight you can share.

Y'all ride safe and Merry Christmas

They give a good ride. They hold a line well in curves. The Wing size makes it easier to get on the center stand. Lowers the engine rpm a bit. They aren't crazy expensive. I'm not a super aggressive rider, but I'm not pokey either. I wanted radials and these work for ME. This isn't recommended by most. They haven't caused any pucker moments. I have not ridden in the rain with them. I'd buy another set.

Thanks Bud.
I've searched my best 5 websites for matching tire sets and the selection is really small. Very hard to find matching front and rear tires in stock.
Did find one set of Avon Spirits.
