Underrated!!! Steal of deal and ready for whatever you can dish out!
Most underrated tire on the market. Wear is phenomenal on street. Use mine as my daily driver, days off....this tire is ready to hit the dirt and take more than my skills can dish out. Air up, air down, tire is ready and willing at any pressure. See a lot of guys bash this tire online, can’t understand why...unless they like wasting money.

Cant beat the value
Usually you get what you pay for, however in this case you get more. Keep in mid this is super inexpensive tire so dont expect it to hang with Mefo, Metzler or Moto Z. This tire is the best option for its price point.

Only giving these 4 stars because I have not yet ridden in rain or mud, so I can only speak for using these on gravel roads and for highway use. They are noisy on the road but nothing to bad. They grip well and they do okay on loose gravel. They are a great buy for the price. I have put about 700-800 miles on them and they seem to be holding up very well.

Good tire great service
Purchased for my KLR, I have about 2500 miles on the set. Mostly asphalt but about 1000 miles of gravel roads. Great on gravel if you drop pressure to around 18 pounds

Good tires, good price
Bought a set of these for my wife’s 2012 KLX250s so we could take a road trip. We ended up running 26 psi in the rear after trying lower amounts first. 23psi in the front & we mounted 3.00 & 4.60 sizes. They have a nice rounded profile for cornering and did well on the Smoky Mountain roads we tested them on. They are wearing nicely with no cupping. We plan on doing some gravel roads and dirt later so more testing to come

Would 5.10x17 be an exact match for 130/80 x17 on a 2016 KLR650?
Roberto R on Feb 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I didn't know either, but I found the following line on a conversion chart on the internet. I tried to send you a link to the page, but they won't let me send links on this website. 130/80 - 5.00/5.10. If you google "motorcycle tire size conversion chart, you should find one.

Hi, for a 90/90 r21 tire, 2.75x21 will work?
Efrain A on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Efrain, I am not a tire specialist but I assume that size is compatible. I used them on a 1998 Suzuki DR 350 SE and found them to be very acceptable for their purpose: mostly street but also light off-road travel. Hope this helps.
Will the 5.10x18 fit on a KTM 300 or do I have to get the 4.60x18?
Dakota N on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would go with the bigger 5.10 on a KTM 300 for traction. I put the 5.10 on my WR 250 and it worked well on dry trails. The smaller closely spaced lugs "didn't" do well in mud! I ended up going to Pirelli MT16. The Pirelli is nice but next time I'm going back to Kenda K760, can't be the performance for the price.
Hi, for a 140/80 r18 tire, 4.60 x 18 will work?
Efrain A on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used the 5.1. & it's definitely smaller than the old 140. I wouldn't go any smaller than the 5.1 myself. These are great value tires though!
I have a 76 Honda CT90, I shows this fits but only offers it for the front. Will it not fit the rear as well?
JEFF R on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Honda CT90 fitment: The front and rear tire/rim on a CT90 is the same. If the tire fits the front, it fits the rear.
I bought 4 of these shinko 244's for two of the 4 CT90's I have and they work great on the front and the rear. Without going out and looking, I believe the size is 2.75x17 (front and rear).
can somebody explain why the 2.75 x 21 has a rating of 45P & the 3.0 x 21 has a rating of 51L - the smaller tire is rated for #70 less but 20mph more ? thanks
Kevin S on Dec 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know the answer, but try this. Go to shinko tire usa and click on "contact" and ask them. Hope they can help you.
Anybody have experience with the 4.6x18 and the 5.1x18? Both will fit my bike, a 94 xr650l. I'm leaning towards the 5.1" but if its way taller I will probably go with the 4.6".
Taylor A on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Its personal preference on what would be best. The terrain that you ride on will make a difference as well.
