Good bang for the buck

There might be better pavement tires and there might be better dirt tires but as a true dual sport tire the 244 gets the job done!

Best tires ever

I put these tires front and rear in my KLR 650 for a trip from Colorado to Colombia about 6500 miles I never had a flat or any kind of problems with them. I love them best tires best for the money.

Pleasantly surprised

I bought a set of these tire's to replace the original bridgestones that had been on my bike since 94. It's a DR 125, so I wanted something similar to the factory originals. These Shinko 244s look good and made a world of difference in the way the bike rode and handled. I mostly ride the bike on paved roads so I can't attest to their off road capabilities other than when I ride it on my gravel driveway. The on road characteristics are very nimble and secure, I no longer feel like the bike is unstable. All in all, I am very happy with these tire's especially for the price.

Shinko Golden Boy front tire 3.00 x 21

The front tire was bought to match the new rear tire of the same make and style. The tread pattern and grip look like they should do the job. I haven't driven the tires off road yet due to the weather. I did drive it on the road briefly and seemed to ride fine. My Suzuki bike is a 125 cc and the Shinko 244 tire should work well for trail riding. Again, time will tell.

Amazing tire for true dual sport riding.

this tire wears fairly well, comparable to most tires of this type but for a lot less money. I use this for truly 50/50 riding and have gotten over 3000 miles on the rear tire. The performance during the wear of this tire remains very consistent.

Squared off rear

Really enjoyed this tire both on-road and off, on my 650 dual sport. Got about 3000 miles on the 5.1x17", however by about half life, the profile had become distinctly square. Note that I avoid freeway droning as much as possible, so should be on the edge of the tire as much as anyone. When tipping into corners, there would be a very noticeable shift from the flat of the profile to the edge, which was a little unnerving. Otherwise was a fantastic tire.

It works

Running these on a 500 and a 250. I found them to mount fairly easily compared to some tires I have dealt with. Took my 250 out for a 2 hour spin on dirt and wet pavement right after the tire was mounted. The only place where it didn't stick well was on slippery clay mud over a hard base. I'll probably buy another when I have worn this one out. So far, so good.

what a tire

Bought a set of these last year for my DR200, got over 4k out of the rear tire then switched to a kenda didn't get nearly as many miles out of that one, by the time the kenda needed to be replace the front tire did too so I bought another pair. They grip hard pack like crazy, gone up some amazing steep power line hills with no wheel spin, they just grip. The front tire can be a bit scary at speed in the looser stuff, (make sure you slide up on the seat) Mud, why would you even think for a second that they are going to work well in mud? LOOK at the tread lol. They do clean out nicely though, after i have spun my way across a mud crossing the tread was always clean On street riding they are very predictable tires, never any surprises. Of course my bike is no road race rocket at only 200ccs. both tires work really well under hard breaking, and hold a line really well. Wet traction...I try not to ride in the rain, no rain gear :)

Shinko 244 on rear of plated xr650r

The best rear tire I have found that can last more than 2000 miles on a mix of pavement and dirt roads.I did a 3 week ride in Baja(border to Cabo and back) and made it on 1 back tire.I use the large 5.10x18 size.

Good for dirt not for highway

I've put about 500 miles on these tires and they are clearly eaten up a little and they can spin out in the dirt with not really grabbing but you get what you pay for. I think I would buy them again still. They do have pretty good value.

Good all around tire

I put the Shinko 244 tire on my '06 XT 225. The tire was shipped quickly and for an unbeatable price. I haven't ridden much on the tire, but I bought it because of all the great reviews. I definitely will be ordering from Motorcycle Superstore again.

Very Affordable

I replaced the front tire on my FJR1300 and have really enjoyed the handling of this tire. I can't rate it highly for tread life or wet traction because the tire is brand new (who knows how long it will last) and it never rains in Arizona, so I may never discover how well it handles in the rain! Good value, and nice handling. I've put over 2,000 miles on the tire in the last month and it feels great!
