Shinko 244

I've had this tire on a DR650 for just under 1000 miles. During that time I've had two flats. I ride 50/50 and I was pleased on road and off. The 4 ply case is no match for sharp rocks. It’s going in the trash! Would not buy this tire again

New shoes for my Honda CT90

I ordered a full set of Shinko 244 dual sport tires, Bikemaster tubes, and IRC rim strips for my 1968 Honda CT90. They are correctly sized and thus easier to install than I anticipated. So far they are performing well.

Shinko 244 dual sport tire

Great tire. Great grip on the trail. Great grip on the road. Bought the 4.10x18 for rear and 3x21 for the front. Very pleased with looks and its ability to perform. Surprisingly low tire noise on the road. Would definitely buy again. Great price.

great tires

I have 2 sets of these. One set for a 72 CL175 and one for a 67 CL90. These are great dual-sport tires. I mostly use these on road. The only issue I have had is that you need to break them in about 250 miles before they become fully stable in on road cornering. I have had them on for 1100 miles so far and they show barely any wear

After all the reading, research, and patient these shinkos are the best deal on the planet. These are indeed yokahamas underneath the shinko label and they are awesome in every way...the feel is great, traction great, cornering awesome. They look so much better close-up; the pics can't do it proper justice.

Shinko 244 front & rear

I put these on my 2007 Kawasaki KLR 650 dual-sport...I ride a pretty even balance of dirt roads and pavement, maybe a wee bit more pavement in 9 years of riding KLR's these are the best tires I have ridden on, they wear down very slowly and give me great confidence on dirt roads and pavement! Awesome tires at an Awesome price!!! Shinko don't go changin on us... and I love doing business with the Motorcycle Superstore.

Shinko 244 Dual Sport Front or Rear Tire

For the money, these are a very good deal. Right out of the box they arrived fresh and mounted without any issues. The visual quality is high and to date their performance exceeds my expectations. I will purchase these types of tires again in the future!

The best 50/50 tire at a great price

These tires are very nice. 3.00x21 on front and 5.10x18 on back. The rear has big knobs, but it doesn't whine at all. The front goes great on the highway, got it up to 75mph with no wobble. I recommend going for the 5.10 on the rear. It fit my Suzuki DR350SE perfectly. It looks about the size of a 120/90 knobby. Any smaller on the rear and it would be too narrow. I paid 70 bucks for a pair of new tires. You can't beat that anywhere. Although I just mounted them and took one ride, I'm sure they will hold up for a long time according to some of the other reviews. Buy em'.

Works Well

I have a 2004 DRZ400s and I was using the Kenda 270. It wore well but I wasn't in love with it. I tried the Shinko 244, which has very similar tread pattern but the knobs are a little closer together. The bike steers better and feels more solid on the pavement and off road, there was no drop off in performance compared to the Kenda. Overall very satisfied.

244 Dual Sport Front and Rear Tires

I purchased Shinko 244 Dual Sport Front & Rear Tires for my KLR-250. I have installed them on the bike and can say that they are run more quietly than the OEM tires that I had although the tread is just as aggressive.

Great tires for my KLR !

I just did a 4,600 miles of twisties around the west-northwest on a set of Shinko 244's on my KLR 650. I started the trip with 1,000 miles already on the tires, and they actually still have some life in them! I kept them well aired up (27 lbs, front; 32 lbs, rear). No problems with lost treads. These tires hold well on the road, albeit the usual noise you'd expect from knobbies on pavement. They did fine in the rain, and corner well. I did several hundred miles of off-road during the trip, and aired them down to 20 front, 24 rear. The bike was well-loaded down, so I didn't air the tires down any more than that: They have great traction in dirt, gravel, and rock. The front has some cupping now, and although the rear actually still has a bit of life in it, they both are getting replaced this week with another set of 244's.

My experience

All good! Fast service, good prices, so guess what, when I need tires for the Wing, you'll get my business again. Son has a 750 that also needs tires so I’m sure we'll be back. Thanks again for the great service.

I love these tires...

Last set got 6,000 miles of on-road off-road on my KLR 650. Great both on and off road, wet and dry, and in corners.
