Great bargain, good performer for Sport Tourer

James in MO

Comments On May 20, 2014:I like the front tire. It has great grip and performance. It is not perfect and it does wander some on grooves. Great tire for the money. Longevity is good too.

The Shinko question?

Robert in UT

Comments On Jun 16, 2013:Good quality tire. Easy installation. Sticky rubber grips the road very well. Aggressive and modern tread design. High speed road test @ 80 mph revealed no shimmy or vibrations. Mounted with balance dot on valve stem and performed a static balance which required no balance weights. Good quality tire along with great price. I will buy this tire again instead of the higher priced brands.

The Jury is still out

Allen in BC – Machine this part was bought for: 2005 YAMAHA XVS1100A V-Star Classic

Comments On Apr 28, 2013:I replaced both front and rear tires on my bike. I had 7000 miles on a set of Dunlops and decided to put on these new Shinko tires. I noticed right off that the bike felt like I was riding on foam rubber. The bike did not hold the line as good as with the old tires. The mechanic who installed the tires said it was because of the release agent on the tires, and as with all tires, it would wear off in the first 100 or so miles. Later I was riding in town at 30 MPH when the vehicle in the next lane suddenly came into my lane. My front wheel locked up, but I managed to keep the bike up and recovered. I am going to give these tires a bit more time to see if they will wear off the release agent and start performing better, but I would suggest being very careful with these tires, at least for the first 100 or so miles. As a side note, I replaced both tires on my other bike with Dunlops, and have had none of these same issues.

Shinko 130/90-16 front tire

jeff

Comments On Aug 13, 2012:After having this tire for 8,500 miles now It has outlasted my Dunlop 404. It rides verey smooth on all types of pavement, keeps its line thru corners very well. It does like to be kept over 40 lbs of air. The rain doesn't seem to bother, it grips much better then my Marathon 880 in the rear in both heavy and light rain. Very happy with this front tire! Did I mention the price is great for a tire of this great quality. This is on a bike weighing 670 lbs
