    Best on/off road tires I've had
    Can really push these in the paved twisties and still feel safe. Rode for an entire day in the rain without issue. Have good control on smooth to moderate dirt roads. Put 2300 miles on a new set on my last trip and (maybe) lost 1/16" of tread off the rear tire. In my estimation, the BEST "compromise" tire for on/off road.

    yup
    are a very simple pattern street tire, that lots of people think are dual sport tires. they're heavy, but the extra weight is to be expected with all the tread that is on them. I've ridden a few fingered miles on them and enjoyed very good traction on the pavement and similar on dirt roads. this is not an off road tire.

    Three sets so far and no issues
    I have run through three sets of these tires and really like how they work. So far I have about 30,000+ miles (70% street, 25% gravel, and 5% trail) on on the 705s and see no reason to change.

    Perfect For The Budget Minded (KLR Rider)
    I think this is my third rear 705, and I'm still very content with the tread life and performance of this tire.
    Because it can be used either on the front or rear, depending on application, I had trouble finding the 130/70-17 tire, it might help for the staff at RMATV to change the category these (and probably many other tires) are in, from f/r to r and also f, if that makes sense.

    Great on tarmac and okay on unprepared surfaces
    The Shinko 705 has become my "go to" tire for my Triumph Scrambler. I think it provides confidence inspiring grip on the road. It's decent for dirt and gravel roads, but not what I'd call an off-road tire. And, I'd say it's decent only at that, not the greatest. I find it's not too confidence inspiring in sand or mud. So, for a dry dirt road with mostly rock or hard pack, it's great. If that same road is wet, it's not so great. Wet traction on tarmac is just fine. I've had great luck with the Shinko 705 so far, better than with any other tire I've used on my Scrambler.

    Good tires for the money!
    Rides smoother and handles better on gravel then I expected. Good tires for the price.

    I ride nearly all year around and I commute a total of 44 miles. Tires lasted about 2 years, sorry didn't track hours or miles. My commute varies from city, freeway at 70 mph and curvy backroads. I never had a issue with traction or holding a line in corners.

    Over the past 2 years i rode gravel roads, small loose pebble trails , large tennis ball size rocks, wet clay, hard pack trails, light mud, snow and ice covered gravel with no real issues with no real issues. Tires always felt connected to the trail.

    Great tire for my riding
    I've gone through several sets of these tires on my KLR. Typically I get about 5,000 miles out of a rear tire, more at the front. This is a couple thousand more miles than I get out of sport-touring tires on my street motorcycles. Admittedly, most of my KLR riding is on pavement, but these tires work well off road, but you'd want to choose something with a more aggressive tread (a knobbly, for example) if you want to ride in deep mud or deeply rutted roads of mud.

    Is this tire good in sand?
    A shopper on Jul 3, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't recommend this tire for sand or mud, but it is however a great tire on the road (pavement) and hard packed gravel roads. I did a 7200 mile trip mostly regular roads and 10% dirt and this tire held up great. Front was still almost like new and rear was about 60-70%. Bike is a WR250R.
    I'd like to get both the front Shinko Tire to match this rear but is it normal to have one tire that is tubed and one that is tubeless?
    Carl J on Jun 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Carl,

    Which one are you looking to run tubed/ tubeless? I have the 705's on front and rear. The rear has always been tubed and has worked well for me- got ~8k miles on a KLR in touring config with lots of weight. Just replaced it with a new (also tubed) 705 at the beginning of the season. The bike came with the 705 on the front and I haven't had to replace it yet, although it's getting close now. I have about 13k miles on it, but no idea how many the previous owner put on it. What kind of riding are you looking to do with it?
    will fit dr650 rear?
    A shopper on Feb 5, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes the 120/70-17 will fit also the 130/80-17 will give a better foot print i would use the 130 myself
