Side knobs will crack way before tread is worn
Tire is great when new, fatty has a whole different dynamic on roots and rough trails. But, very disappointed side knobs start cracking at the base and if you're running tubliss you will flat, and there is really no way to fix it, slime might work for a while but you will lose the battle of the cracked knobs. The GoldenTyre fatty has the same issue, it just takes much longer b/c higher quality rubber. So it might be a function of running such a large tire on the front, there is more leverage on the knobs being farther off the wheel center line, plus I am a bid dude and ride a 450 so some higher forces on the tire.

Great value tire
-m-2019 KTM 250 XC-W i (Fuel Injected)--

Put fat tyre on front of bike at 0 hours. Have been very happy with tire. Inspires lots of confidence compared to a traditional size tire. Feels very good in all the terrain I've had it in so far (rocks, mud, sand, dirt, granite). Replaced at 50 hours because some of the side knobs are starting to chunk off, though tire is still safely rideable. The rest of the tire still looks very good. Tire has been run at 10 psi its entire life with a tube. Anything higher felt washy

My tire of choice now.
just ordered about my 5th set of these tires. The shinko 525 and Shinko fat tyre front is my combo of choice for the offroad now. I cant recommend for the mx track because i havent put to the test but for offroad the money to performace ratio is BEST!

Wagon Wheel
This is the greatest tire for riding single track/technical rock trails. With the larger diameter, its gives less rolling resistance for small rocks, roots, and brake chatter. In the sand its rolls great going straight, its downfall is obviously turning in sand, it will push through the turn because of its larger footprint

Run!!!
This tire is highly unpredictable and though it may have the same tread pattern as the Goldentyre it is NOT the same tire. The side knobs tear off at random and when they do the front end will wash out. This is highly unpredictable, and caused a couple of crashes.

Good tire but does not last long, side knobs chunk off pretty quick. The goldentyre one last much longer.

The traction surpasses my skill level
This is a first impression on the rear tire after one ride in the Tillamook Oregon Brown's camp area.
It was raining and very wet the day I went riding. The ground was loose in some areas, other areas it was pretty muddy, other areas was rocky with clay. In all those areas, the tire hooked up very well. Much better than I expected. The tire was very predictable once I got use to how much traction I was getting. In the perfect single track soil conditions, it hooked up so well, I'd go up into an unexpected wheelie if I gave it too much throttle on accident. I crashed a couple times because of that.
On hill climbs (mind you I don't have a rekluse) again I was able to get so much traction I'd fly up long 60-70 degree hill climbs. At a couple points, the ground would level off resulting in me being about 4-5 feet off the ground. I was able to stop mid climb on some of these hills and start from a dead stop. The tire would spin a little, then grab and I'd make it back up the hill.
I rode in "The Trench" hill climb, although I didn't make it up it the tire was still getting traction. The tire was also clean in comparison to my buddies Dunlop.
I can't say much about braking because my rear brake isn't working properly at the moment.
I run about 7-8psi. Wear after one ride seems pretty alright. There's slight rounding of the accelerator side of the knobs, probably from riding on gravel and rocks.

Overall, very awesome tire. Looks just like the Golden Tyre GT216. When I get my rear brake figure out, and more hours on it I'll give an update.

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.
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.
