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!

Installed on KL250 Super Sherpa front and rear

They are a little noisy on the road but they are very solid in the dirt. Okay in shallow mud but sand can be a challenge. As far as dual sport tires go all tires are a compromise. There are better tires for the street or the trail, but this tire is tough for me to beat for its ability to do both. I'm about 70% street 30% dirt and trails, and this tires gets me there. It's also extremely inexpensive.

Shinko 244, Front & Rear

I have these tires on both of my Dual Sport bikes, a 1973 Yamaha 360 Enduro (RT-3) which is my daily rider and is BARELY street legal, and my Kawasaki KLX250S with a 330cc big-bore package that includes a pumper-carb (Mikuni) and full power-bomb/DG exhaust pipe. They perform better than anything else I have seen or tried! Mark--San Diego area, riding off-road since 1969

Great Tire for the Money!!!

I bought this tire for my small dual purpose bike. It looks good on the bike and seems to get good traction.

Shinko 244 Golden Boy

I needed a new front tire on my Yamaha XT225, and the selection of 2.75-21 tires is not what it used to be. Shinko still makes this size and this model is a reasonable match to the rear tire I have on the bike. The tire installed fine and rides like it is supposed to. I can't attest to longevity, but I am entertained by the name molded into the sidewall: Golden Boy. Great name for a tire. I can't wait to ride on a really rough track so I can report how well the Golden Boy takes a pounding.

Excellent tire for the money

I just ordered my third set of the Shinko 244's. These tires are really good on the road, offroad and ok in the mud. My first set I got over 8000 miles out of on my ttr250 - probably could have gotten another few thousand. I have two bikes and these are on both now. Bought these originally because of all the good reviews people gave them. These are a solid performer.

Long life, good traction

I read a lot of reviews on tires and came across these Shinko 244's. I found most reviews stated high mileage and good traction, not bad. Also, they were the least expensive tires, sometimes more than half the price of well known brands. I bought a pair of Shinko 244's and pushed them far beyond and had no problems. 17k out of the front and 19k out of the rear. Just bought another set. They work great and you can't beat the price.

New Tires

My wife actually bought these for her KLX250 and I have not had the opportunity to put them on yet. I believe she will love them. She has painted rims and I don't want to bang them up when I change the tires out so I have been researching a more aesthetically effective way. She does mostly on road riding back and forth to work but occasionally we will take them off road. Her current tire is not the least bit good for that. When she saw these tires online she was all about getting them. The price was a big factor as well.

Good tire for the money

This is a best bang for your buck, kind of tire. It handles great on the road, and well on gravel/dirt roads. If you are going through mud, or loose dirt it slips very easily. I've put 600 miles on it on my 06 DR650 and I am happy with it overall. I'd recommend it.

Good price, good tire, slight out of round issue.

Good price, good tire. I commute about 70% on road and 30% off road. The main reason I have the bike though is for riding off road. This tire is good for this. The tire I received was not quite round on one side. There is about an 1/8 of an inch difference in an area about six inches long. It does not seem to affect the performance much. I mention this with the intention of providing constructive criticism to the manufacturer and distributor.

Best tire for the money.

This is my second rear tire of this brand. For the price I paid, this tire does everything I need it to. I am a fair weather rider who does street duty to light offroad. No mud riding so no comment on that. Sticks ok on pavement and ok in the dirt. Not the best but not the worst...

I've used these for a few years and have great success with them. Can't think of a reason to try anything else.
