    Outstanding on road and gravel

    Just put 400 miles on these in the Northern Ga. mountains running FS roads, trails and paved country roads. In gravel, both loose and packed they were great! Tires did great even running 21psi front and 26psi rear. I was most impressed on the pavement.

    Great Tire off and on-road

    I put this on the front of my TW200 and it grabs off-road and in gravel well. It is a soft compound so it rides nice on the pavement. Too early to tell (only 1,000 miles) how it will wear long term. So far, I could not be happier.

    Golden Boy

    I purchased the Shinko 244 in 5.10/18" for the front of my TW200. The tire is a bit taller, wider, and heavier than the stock Bridgestone, but it went on easy and looks good. The Shinko has a larger contact patch than the factory Bridgestone TW tire. On-pavement the predictability and traction of the the two tires feels about the same, however the Golden Boy feels less stable and tends to drift around a bit more. I'd buy this tire again, but only because of limited options for the TW200.

    New shoes for the DR

    Went with a matched set front and back after wearing out the stock rear tire. Really liked the feel of the factory Trail Wings on the pavement and these don't give up much. Only slightly more vibration from the knobs, but completely reasonable. Wanted something with a bit more off road capability. Don't see much wear after 500 miles and can't beat the price (Can't answer wet traction yet, been awfully dry around here).

    low cost-good value

    Tires were easy to mount and fit the bill for my small dual sport bike that I use for commuting and back road riding on the weekends.

    7K and counting

    I ride mostly pavement, gravel roads and class 4 roads. Good stability under 65mph, cornering is decent but I don't take turns aggressively. Dry traction is very good and haven't had any problems in the rain. Good on gravel and sand. The rear tire is now over 7K miles with enough tread for about another 1,000. Front has about 5K with a ton of tread but is wearing uneven, scalloping maybe due to improper balance. Excellent value at $90 for the pair shipped.

    Great on my KLR650

    Love them! Price is right, went on without a hitch and rode as good as the more expensive tires!! If I can get half the mileage some of the other reviews claim I will be thrilled for $80 a set!!

    Good wear.

    Mounted on a Suzuki DR 650. I mounted a set front and rear. 7500 miles out of the rear and 9000 out of the front. About 60% street, 40% off roading. Stick well on paved, winding roads. Fine in rain. Great off road, but a little slippery in really soft mud. Overall, a good tire.

    WR250X tires

    I purchased these tires based on reviews on the internet and thought they would be a good choice for my bike. The price was right and the delivery was quick. I've only put a couple 100 miles on them, all on the street. I still need to play with the tire pressure currently running 25 frt and 28 rear, which may be too high. They do give the bike a certain look and the bike can be a little twitchy on the road.

    On two bikes

    These tires are the best for all around riding. I have them on my 1974 TS 400 Suzuki and on my 2009 DR650 Suzuki. 95% road riding second set of these on the DR. Got about 5000 on the first set and couldn't see buying anything else since the price is right. They do good in the sand up on the Red River and do good on the highway in Dallas.

    Great tire for the $

    I put the rear tire on my 09' KLR650 at 4K miles to replace the OEM Dunlop and it has performed very well, now at 9500 miles and still approximately 1/2 tread. The only negative is breaking traction while downshifting on pavement, 50/50 tire I guess. Good on dirt roads, loose gravel, corners good for a 50/50. Put the front on at 6K and performs well on dirt roads as well as pavement, wet or dry but very noisy, it's a knobby so it should be. Squirrely at 65+ mph on warmer days but usually ride in 50mph zones anyway. Overall very happy and would highly recommend for a dual sport adventure rider.

    Yokahoma molds

    KLR650 - just finished installing my 3rd set of these. Last set I got 9k out the front and 11k from the back! Great all-around tire. I ride interstate and desert on these tires. I have no complaint about these tires at all.

    Shinko 244 Dual Sport Front - Rear

    A+++ I have had the front on for around 4000 miles and am so far pleased with how well it has been. I suspect the rear will perform equally as well.

    Great Shinko Tire !

    I installed the Shinko 244 on the front of my 09 KLR650 along with a T63 on the rear at the start of the year and now have just over 2k on both and loving it! On road, off road it does it all and screams for more! I think the rear will have a new 244 on it next year! Great Price! BIG BANG FOR THE BUCK!

    Shinko 244 Rear

    Price sucked me in. Replaced the 244 rear tire at 300 miles on my DRZ. Tread blocks cracking where attached to main carcass. Tire pressures were 22 Ibs on the road, lowered to 16 Ibs for back country dirt riding. Definitely not a good mud tire, which is probably right for a 50/50 tire. Experience has me going back to the 606, a 90/10 tire, which fits my kind of riding and is usually good for 2500 miles.
