Great front tire for New England style woods
Tire worked great just wished it lasted a little longer. Overall worth the price all day long and I would purchase again. I did run it through a lot of sharp rocks and rough terrain.

Good for the money
Great tire for the money if you ride hard enduro. Good on rocks and lower speeds. I did 80 miles of hard enduro and the side knobs started to show some wear, not quite chunking, but close. Any tire gets eaten up in the rocks quickly, so I’m not concerned considering the price. I heard the Golden Tyre does not chunk the side knobs from another rider who was also running the Shinko.

Recommend running this front and rear as a pair.
I do hares srambles in the east coast ,west virginia. Long rocky/rooty up hills , and long rooty/rock down hills. I run a tube , and haven’t had a pinched tube in 2 season since I switched to this tire . What I like most about the fatty front is the way you can (also a Keft motto suspension) literally slam into rocks and roots while carving your way through the woods. It did how every take a few races to trust the traction of the front end. Since iv had the fatty i now fully trust this tire. Best front tire hook up iv ever had in term with the terrain I race . Now for the bike tire . It has a half life of about 8 hours . But gummys are gummies . You won’t get get stuck. You can pretty much billy goat up anything to get around bottle necks. I’d recommend running this in pair . Run the fatty front , and at least a 120 or 140 in the back .

NOT a replacement for Goldentyre
I had high hopes for this Shinko, but am sadly disappointed. When it's new it performs as well as the GT, but the side knobs tear off after just a couple of hundred miles. I rode 3000 miles in Baja on a Goldentyre fatty and the tire was still intact and performing better than could be hoped for. After just 500 miles the Shinko has lost nearly half of its side knobs, but the remainder of the tread is wearing very slowly. What a shame! (I have since learned that this is a clone of the GT DST version, which also fell apart. The GT 2-ply one is the tyre to get.)

Best sand tire I've found so far.
I ride dunes and sand almost exclusively. It's my life mission to find the perfect sand tire, so far this is my favorite, the least wash-out on tight sand trails and the float is good.

Side performance lacking
Great value, cheap tire, performance good in center section. Benefits end there for the terrain I ride in. Front will not stay planted in sand/dirt/decomposed granite singletrack. The tire wants to climb out of every rut/singletrack trail and send you off course. Constantly fighting tire to stay centered. After 20 hrs overall wear is decent, however every single side lug is chunking. When fully leaned over & charging hard the tire gives up and all traction is lost requiring severe counter-steering efforts to keep course. This tire does not inspire confidence in the terrain I ride in.

Great tire, especially for the price
These tires are great, I like the extra height out of the tire, feel like they add a little suspension and not so many rim shots on rocks and ledges. They handle and corner great when the knobbies are sharp. Not so much once it's a little worn, but I should have changed it a while ago. Also only OK in the mud.

Do these still run on the marrow side? Since Shinko aquired golden tyre I didnt know if they use there molds or there own still.
Mike B on Nov 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 100/90 x 21 is a big tire. Width is like an M59 but about 20mm taller. I have it on a Yamaha 450FX and it is working very good. I do not have a lot of time on it for a full review but on that bike I think it is the best I have found. It definitely brakes better than an M59 and has very good cushion on the rocks. I read elsewhere the 100/80 id definitely narrower. Shinco has a 90/90 x 21 that is wider and standard height.
Do you run the 90/100-21 Fatty with or without a tube? I am running a 2004 DRZ400S. Riding mostly off-road, rocks, mud, gravel along with an occasional paved road.
Curt R on Nov 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Curt, you can run it with either. If your riding rocks and want to use a tube, I'd say go with a HD or Ultra HD tube made with real rubber. Personally, I've been using Tubliss for 2 years. It's a very good system if properly installed. Viturally, tubes, Tubliss, Mousse systems all have limitations and benefits. Also, as mentioned in one of the questions, the Fatty does have a tendency to tear side knobs due to the extreme angle on the tire. The Chubby which is slightly smaller has reinforced side knobs which seems to addressed the tearing problem.
What pressure do you run with Tubliss for the front tire?
Dicky B on Aug 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I run 10psi front a 8psi rear with tubliss.
Can I fit a fat tyre on my stock rims?
Dalton G on Aug 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: yes a fat tire fits your stock rims no problem! I have put 1 on my 2014 KTM 300 and I have 1 on my 2016 KTM 450 they fit great!!
Which size tire would be best for a KTM 350? I’ve read that the 80 is skinny and taller.
Ken F on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If u ride in rocks get the 90/100. If you ride in loose or sandy soul get the 80/100. The Shinko will not hold up to low pressure. We run mousse tubes and we ripped the knobs off in less than 10 hrs. The Golden tire 90/100 Fatty is worth the extra money if you run low pressure or Mousse Tubes, we have over 50 hrs on the Golden tire. The Shinko tire is a cheap copy of the Golden Tire. Just my two cents.
Is the 140 enduro rear a "gummy" tire?
A shopper on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is not going to be a "gummy" tire, however this tire will have a soft terrain style feel and is very good for enduro applications.
Is it DOT compliant?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is. Just put mine on about a month ago.
i hear this tire is available in a DOT approved version. is it available through RMATV?
Daniel S on Oct 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you get The Shinko MX216 it will be a DOT approved tire. If you look at the product description below the picture it will tell you the details on the product.
Does anyone know the actual width of the fatty tire installed? 90/100 21
Sean W on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: its just under 4 inches..
Does anyone know what ply the front fatty is?
clarence n on Aug 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe its a two ply sidewall and two ply on the tread.
Love the tire but has a tendency to eject knobs on the rough terrain i ride. But for the price.....
