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.

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.

Not the same as the Golden Tire
These seem to chunk out pretty fast, but at half the price of the Golden Tire, I suppose since they seem to last half as long, it is not a huge deal. I think they handle great until the side knobs are gone. I am still surprised the side knobs were breaking off. I never had this problem with the Golden Tire 216 fatty.

Great
Works great in the rock to soak up the bumps and hooks good in slippery conditions this is my 6th tire, side lugs will fade quickly if pushed hard in abrasive terrain but it's hard to beat the price and performance vs a golden

Best front tire for gnarly woods racing
Hands down, most predictable and confidence inspiring front tire I’ve ever run. The first harescramble I ran this tire, I was able to push harder than ever before in rocks/roots/mud. The only downside to this tire is that it will try to climb out of deep ruts. It can be a bit strange at times but definitely worth the money. Will be buying another soon

Great tire in wet rocks and roots!
Just switched out my front tire to a fatty and wow what a game changer! This spring has been overly wet and this tire let me track around the water puddles like I was on a MTN bike. Great shock absorbstion in the rocks too. It was my first 70 miles on it so I can't speak for the tread life.

Fantastic Tire
I have tried all the brands of front tires over the years. I found the Golden fatty to have the best grip for the the riding I do until i tried the Shinko MX 216. From what I have read the Shinko and the Golden are made from the same mold. I have seen some issues with the side knobs but at the current price I'm willing to replace the front tire more often. These tires give you a great amount of confidence in all types of terrain.

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

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.
