Good tire for the money

My only gripe is it seems kinda noisy compared with the bridgestone I had on their last. It seems to handle the same. Will buy again! V-Strom 650

WOW!!!

These tires are cheap overseas junk....... or that what I want you to believe so you don’t buy all of them before me!! This is the best AGGRESSIVE dualsport tire available! Way to go Shinko for stepping up and making an awesome tire! I have ridden these tires for 2k miles, they are still at 75% tread, and I kid you not I’ve been on freeways, fireroads and straight up DIRT TRAILS, and they STILL cease to amaze me. Pass them up, only so we can buy more when we need them :)

Shinko? Looks Good!

Ignore the tread life rating as I have had these only 1000 miles. Review: I had such good results with low cost tires on my KLR ( Cheng Shin), I decided to try it for my V-Strom 650. I asked a couple different vendors if they'd had any negative feedback on these tires- both said all good feedback as long as not overloaded. Since I don't ride two up, this is not an issue. As usual Motorcycle Superstore had them in stock, shipped next day - I had them on 3rd day after order. I've ridden them about 1000 miles, including a lot of pavement twisties and highway speeds (a little noisy, as they are a little chunky). Also hit by a downpour one day - I slowed down, of course, but no apparent loss of traction. These track dead straight. Have not tried them on gravel, but they seem chunky enough to handle it. I'm going to watch how long they last compared to the "high priced spread". I figure even if I get 80% of the wear, for 50% of the price.... I'm still ahead?

Great Tires

I only have about 500 miles on them but they have great wet and dry grip. I’m not sure how long they will last but for the price I don’t guess it really matters. I recommend trying them out.

Shinko front and rear tires

Had the front and back tire put on and love the results. Had a Shinko rear tire before I purchased the front rear set this time. The Shinko rear tire I used first, I put 7k on and liked it better than the OEM, the Bridgestone and the Dunlop, so when it came time to get more tires I went straight for the Shinkos. The dual sport tread on the 705 front tire DOES NOT TRACK with the road grooves AT ALL, did not get this with the other tires. I ride a '08 KLR650, and these are by far the best riding tires yet, I'm sure these will be the next set I purchase. Great product, great price, great delivery!

Shinko 705

Bought a set at the beginning of this past season. Motorcycle Superstore employees must drink a pot of coffee each a day, items were pulled and shipped almost faster than I could check them. These tires are fantastic nevermind the price, I put over 3,500 miles on them and no doubt will get that much again out of them. Grip was great in all road conditions and speeds (flat out on my KLR650,little over 100mph). Handle the dirt very well for their 20% dirt rating. Fantastic buy.

Tough

These tires are great. I have had these tires on for about 3500 miles and they still have a lot of life left. I have them on my KLR 650. I was able to go up 1 size to the 140/80. Anyway, I went on a dual sport rally last fall with these tires on my bike. They surprised me for the 25% trail rating. They whole time on this ride I am thinking "i'm going to have a flat anytime" 185 miles of big rocks, washed out gravel, dirt you name it. Tires didn't even looked phased at all! The guys with Kenda 50/50 tires were having a bad day. Not me. The only thing STAY OUT OF THE MUD AND SLIMY STUFF. Other than that A+.

Wet Road

I installed these tires on a KLR 650. They mounted very easily, handling is great on paved or gravel roads. The first time I rode them in the rain it was a complete downpour with standing water in the road and I never had the feeling I was going to lose it. I will buy these tires again.

3400 Miles so far (KLR650)

I was wary of these due to reviews of tread blocks coming apart, but I can honestly say I put 3400 miles on a set and they've been great on my KLR 650. I beat the hell out of em, from a 75MPH, 724mi day on NM & TX interstate, to low speed gravel fire roads in the mountains, to the Devil's Backbone in AZ, in dry & wet, cold & hot. They performed well, and still have tread left. I didn't get to do much off-road as I wanted, but they handled fine on gravel.

Shinko 705 rear

I am very impressed with the tires. The most impressive is the traction off-road, which is totally superb, and outstanding. Cornering is also very impressive. I am coming from the Metzeler-Tourance, and the shinko705 seem to have better handling overall in all conditions. They also cost a fraction. Downside: you do feel the rough profile. Durability: I do not know.
