    Great Cheap Tires
    For the price these tires are great. I have run them on my KLR and they grip great on the road and are pretty decent off-road as well. Tread left is awesome for the price. Very comparable to the Kenda K760

    705s Are Great
    These tires have unbelievable wet, or dry traction on the road. They also work very well in the dirt. This is my 3rd Shinko 705.for the rear. I'm on my 2nd on the front.

    2009 KLR 650
    After years of resisting I have officially joined the Dark Side and bought a set of Shinko 705's for my KLR.

    And I like them! They were easy to put on, balanced easily and they handle just as good as the much more expensive tire I had been using for the type of riding I do most.

    These are excellent tires I am happy with them.

    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.

    I have a klr 650 (2018). Will this tire be suitable for the rear wheel?
    James K on Feb 26, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Shinko 705 Universal F/R works for the rear on the KLR 650. I have purchased three so far for my first gen KLR and have had no issues with them. They do wear a little fast if you run heavily loaded like me but they are a pretty good all around tire at a great price. Great traction in the rain on pavement. A little squishy in the curves with a heavy load. Quiet on the highway.
    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 the same tube on my Dunlop 750 work on this Shinko 705?
    MARCUS L on Sep 5, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Depends on the size of the tires and tubes. If they are the same size of tire and tubes, then yes you shouldn't have any issue using that tube on both of the tires.
    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
