Great. Used on 800mi Michigan Mccct trip on XR650L
After being disappointed by a D606 front I put this tire on my XR650L for my mccct trip. 800 mi of whooped sand single track, roots, gravel, and pavement. The 216 was great. I ran the 90/90-21. Good traction all around. Predictable and stayed hooked considering my heavy bike had an oversized tank too. I noticed it really goes where you point it including out of ruts. In narrow trail sometimes it wanted to pull the bike up out of ruts. This was a plus for me because it wasn’t too bad and made it easy to veer off trail for bypasses etc. Road manners were also good but I ride tame on the road.

Wow what a great tire!
Wow I heard this tire could be the difference- it is! Fantastic traction, renewed confidence in the sand washes. Can’t believe I can tell the difference but I can!

Testing the Hype
I was due for a front tire and wanted to see what a fat tire was like. So far just one 30 mile ride in the desert, but I purposely rode every off-camber I could find to test it out. It did grip noticeably better. It also felt heavier everywhere else, but not bad, just noticeable. I need to get it on some slick single-track to really test it and a few more hours to see how it will hold up, but so far, so good.

Wow!
I tried this tire after being REALLY impressed with the SX216 for hard enduro. The first race was a solid hare scramble for 2.5hrs of decently hard racing (AA). This rear tire hooked up amazingly. In some of the hard slick ground it stuck and surprised me a few times how well it hooks up.

This past weekend, i was fairly worried about it. I have had the same tire on for a while now. It's definitely show its life after about 10hrs of racing on it including the Leadbelt National Enduro. This weekend it was VERY muddy. I don't see this tire as being a mud tire and I thought I would be all over the place. To my surprise, I was solid with this tire the entire time. It cleaned out well and in the very muddy hills it grabbed and tractored its way up even the snottiest of hills.

Don't be worried about the low knobbies and being FIM approved. This hooks just as good and better than any back tire on a multitude of surfaces.

Not the tire for me
This is a very hard tire. I chose the 90/90 because I felt the last golden tire made a difference on the bike handleing, even after adjusting the triple tree positions to account for the taller front tire. I ran from 8-10 lbs in it with a tubliss setup. Guys I ride with were questioning if my gauge was broken. Felt like 20 lbs, the tire was just firm as hell. . regardless, . I ran the 90/90 for 3-4 rides. We run eastern PA coal region trails of rocks, shale and wood loam/dirt, roots and logs. I’m a C class registered racer, but B class when we are out riding. The first ride seemed ok. Cornered ok. Had to watch the ruts like everyone says. Little bit of deflection. Great over rock gardens, tracked pretty straight. Thought I could live with it. Somewhat of an exhausting tire, you can feel the weight and larger tread. By the 3rd-4th ride (110 miles?), side knobs are ripping off, the thing is washing out on me constantly. Rode about 2/3 my normal speed in the woods out of fear today. You can hear the hard carcass making a bashing sound over the rocks. Slipping on wet logs, I lost about 50% confidence in this tire. I had the goldentyre before, I wanted it to work for me. Some other riding partners have these tires and love them. I even aired down, trying to eliminate washouts. Regardless, I’ll remove it and trash it and go back to the tried and true m59. I might ask shinko why it’s chunking so bad. Not the tire for me.

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.)

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.

Sean W on Aug 26, 2019

clarence n on Aug 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe its a two ply sidewall and two ply on the tread.
