Great d/s tire for more woods than road
Used it on DRZ previously. Great feel and grip on wet/muddy and intermediate single track and OK traction on pavement. Great price vs same GoldenTyre Fatty. Same tire near as I kind find

Knobs tear quick! Golden Fatty or Shinko 546 are better
Surprised how bad the Fatty size held up! Edge knobs all are completely torn off the carcass after only 20 hrs or so. I have the Golden fatty on another bike and zero tears after 50 hrs. I've found that the Shinko 546 90/100 holds up a lot better if you want a big front tire at half the cost of the Golden.

Very happy!
This tire works great! First ride in sub freezing weather and had very little issues with the front end sliding out. Even in some icy corners it still hooked up pretty well. After a 6 hour ride the tire shows no real signs of wear. I ride in an area with tons of rocks and roots.

not for me
Don't know how this MX216 tire gets such a good rating from most riders. Purchased because of reviews and price. Used it once on my TE300i in a two hour harescramble race in Ohio with a new Shinko 525 cheater on the rear. Track conditions were normal for a fall harescramble, some mud and some dry areas. Had no traction front or rear. Took them off and won't use or purchase either again.

Shinko 216 Value and Performance
I have run this tire on both my 500 and 690 KTMs. Lots of Baja, Nevada and UT off road. Tires perform very well and grip and work well in sand also. The 90/100/21 is a BIG tire TALL and wide. I like the 90/90 for smaller bikes and where I don't want the extra ride height up front.

Great tire.
Have over 700 miles on this tire in desert and mountains. Still have many more miles left .Excellent grip, doesn't deflect off rocks, works well in loose sand as well as hard packed two track.

Excellent Value and Performance
I put just about 1000 miles of some of the most punishing riding ive done on this tire and it shows. As some state the side knobs are starting to go, but I'm more impressed that i havent shredded the sidewall yet. I did about 400+ miles in CO and couldn't believe the punishment it took when paired with an ultra heavy duty tube (star trail and timberline etc.). The rocks out there are are sharp and do not move. It has more life left, but I have started replacing my tires sooner rather than later so can enjoy the incredible traction.

What I did notice going to the fatty (and heavy duty tube) was the rotational mass) it took me all of 10-20 miles to get over it, but you will feel it. However, whats more important is that you will also feel how much this tire soaks up those sharp rocks and roots.

Handling was alright but side lugs ripped after 12 hours.
I liked this tire at the start but the tread life of the shinko 216 front fatty is legendary for being absolutely garbage. the side lugs of 90% of these 216 are torn off after 10-20 hours at the most.

the GoldenTyre will last 50-100 hours easily without a single torn knob, has a better carcass, softer rubber, and is lighter. sure its a few bucks more but itll last 5x longer (proven).

will never buy a shinko again. spend the 50% more and get a goldentyre.

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!!
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.
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 Shinco mx 216 fatty a gummy tire?
Bruce H on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No this is not a gummy. It's called the Fat Tire as the 90/100-21 is a bit wider and taller than most stock fronts which at usually 80/100-21, like a 3.25"
for a Shinko MX216 90/100-21 what is the correct nitro mousse (std)?
Richard P on Dec 27, 2019
Shinko MX216 Series Tire
Shinko MX216 Series Tire
Nuetech Nitro Mousse Standard Foam Tube
Nuetech Nitro Mousse Standard Foam Tube
BEST ANSWER: NM21-235 is the correct size for standard pressure feel. There is a handy reference table, sorted by wheel size with the 21" wheels at the bottom. Either here or on the Nitro Mousse site

Hey RM please update your table with the lates from Nitro Mouse, by the way.
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.....
