Shinko 712 tires

These tires represent excellent value for money. Highly recommended. Mine are on a rare 11983 Honda CX650E, where they steer straight and true, wet or dry.

Great value, mileage-handling-fit- and price!

Last better, and pumped up without aids to full rim seal. Third one of these for me cause they last and work great with quick delivery. Ain't broke dont fix it! Love em.

Shenko 712 front tire.

The price is good. They get here quickly. The rubber compound seems softer than some tires, so they wear somewhat faster than others, but they grip well, and when your going hard into a corner, that's what you want. So, I'll take a little faster wearing, better gripping tire every time. Thanks.

Nanc

I'm. Very disappointed with this tire I tried everything in the book but I could not get the tire to seal! I don't know what else to do but to take it off the rim n send it back! Not sure how many people have had this issue however if you did n u had to go with another tire if appreciate someone letting me know what tire did u buy cause the Shinko 712 although was a decent price just did not want to seal on my 19" front spoke rim for my 1998 Yamaha V-Star 650 Custom Motorcycle! Are does anyone have any tips on making a Tubeless Tire seal! Was thinking of putting a tube inside but not sure if a tube would fit a tubeless tire!

Damn sticky tires for classic bikes

I bought these in Nov. 2010 for my 82-Suzuki GS 1100G and did a track day with them! Now 5 years & 5000 miles later I replaced the rear because it squared of enough to feel wobbly transitioning to steep lean angles. Did not think at all about stepping up to better known brand names. I can't tell the difference between these and Battlax BT45s for performance, 'cept for the money I saved!

Great tire

First off my loyalty is with Shinko and Motorcycle superstore. I love this tire. It handles great around corners and is a nice looking tire. You guys have fast and courteous shipping.

Shinko's on XS650s

Running a pair of these Shinko's on a Yamaha XS650 standard. Took it down to to the Ozarks for a rally 500 miles of sporty riding wet and dry. They worked great. Have mounted and ridden at least 10 shinkos so far. One has put 5K miles on the rear of a K1200LT, which abuses it's rear tire just sitting!

Shinko 712

I bought a set for my '80 Yamaha XS650 SG. Great tire! Wet or dry it sticks to the road. It does tend to follow grooves though. Wears well. I ride this bike like a sportbike with deap leans in corners and they hold well.

Best bang for buck

I ride 2 up mostly, with some gear, and compared to some popular brands, Shinko tires have proven to me to be superior. I own a vintage Goldwing and BMW rt1150, both with Shinko's. I'm going towards my 2nd set and with no reason for considering anything else. My loyalty stays with Shinko's loyalty to its customer for providing both quality and low price

SHINKO 712 Excellent Tire & Price

Purchased the 712 front and then the 712 rear for a 1982 xv750 Virago that I am restoring. Great buying decision. Get yourself some tire spoons and have both on in about 10 minutes.
