Chunks
The tire started to lose chucks off the knobs after just 1000 miles. It was never even taken off pavemet. Had to replace it for safety reasons

Mynew favorite tire
Took it on a trip to Baja to see the Baja 1000. Mostly road but about a fifty miles of sharp rocks. Still have lots of tread left. Handled fine, nice tread for off road and not bad for on road.

Cant complain for the price
Great price and grip on the trails. Seems to wear a little quicker than Kenda K270, but it sticks where it should. No problems balancing it. Running on WR250R, will easily see 2500 miles 50/50 use from it before swapping it out

Too new to know
Just installed the tire. Looks great, just as I expected. It is cold here in Idaho. I don't expect to get to try the tire for at least another month. Far too soon to tell about tire life, handling or traction.

Like Shinko 244s for Dual Sport
My grip and handling ratings are mainly for off-road use.
My on-road use is limited to riding approx. 15 miles from home to the trail head at relatively low speeds (under 50 MPH).
The off-road grip and handling is nowhere near full knobbies.

Terrific Value, Good Performance
I installed a set on my KLR650. The rear was a bear to spoon on but both went on without issues. I've done about 5k mi on them so far. The rear is showing significant wear and has about 30% life left. The front is showing 80-90% life left. They felt floaty at first, but I either got used to it, or they broke in well.
I've done 15% serious twisties, 70% city/hwy commuting, and 15% gravel/single track.
The front washed out once, but that might have been my technique. At >5000mi a set, this will be my go-to general use dualsport tire of choice.

Love this tire first of many sets for me!
I bought these tires based on tread pattern and friends comments. Mounted them this week and it’s rained every day. Today the sun was out, I call a friend and told him I wanted to try out my new tires. We rode 100+ miles today a mix of dirt, gravel, single track and one trail that was on his property that hadn’t been ridden in months. This tire is wonderful, even in the slick slimy stuff, it performs. He was running pirelli knobby Dot’s and at times he was struggling for traction! I had great traction.

Does this tire come with tube included or does it have to be purchased separately?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tube must be purchased separately.
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?
Dan G 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: It will work with a tube but the 4.60 is a smaller tire. A 5.60x18 would be equal.
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: This tire is a general, dual purpose design & can be used as a front or rear . It is a very good front replacement tire for my Yamaha TW 200 . Check with Rocky MT/MC tire sizing conversion chart for all applications.
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.
