Comments about Shinko 006 Podium Motorcycle Tire:

I purchased this Podium tire set for my 2007 SV650S after a positive experience with the Advance 005s on an older Suzuki Katana. I'm very happy with these Podiums as a fantastic upgrade over the stock Dunlop tires. These have far better grip and cornering behavior than the stock Dunlops. Although the SV is still unstable with stock suspension, these tires did help to keep the rear end more inline. So far, I have been unable to break rear traction powering out of curves leaned over more than halfway... I'm very impressed at the traction, stability, and definitely cost effectiveness of this upgrade. I ride my bike everyday but still do sport riding on the weekends and I needed a balance between performance for the weekend, and cost effectiveness for the week. This tire is a great mix of both and will not disappoint anyone. I cannot comment on traction behavior for litre bike power levels, but for 600s or smaller these tires are probably the best you can find.

Note, if you ride an SV650 please investigate the use of a 120/70 front tire to correct your speedometer and improve handling.

Comments about Shinko 006 Podium Motorcycle Tire:

I got 15,000 + miles out of these tires. I could go to Florida and back again. (from Virinia) I am changing them because I like to work on my bike and what can I say I get paranoid. A man's machine is a statement of the owner, these tires say you take care of things and let you enjoy your toy. I would recommend these to anyone who rides year round, and those who occasionally like to show the Prius who is really boss.

    Comments about Shinko 006 Podium Motorcycle Tire:

    I ride pretty aggressively and the back tire has stuck during aggressive down-shifting and while throttling out of a curve. I used to run Michelin Pilot Power and I would give these two tires equal rating.

    Comments about Shinko 006 Podium Motorcycle Tire:

    As one of the few tires still manufatured that fit my 1995 Honda CB1000, this one is certainly the best I've found. Used to use the Dunlop, but they no longer make the size I need for the rear tire.
    The shorter treadlife is, of course, directly related to the stickiness of the tire, such is life.

        A:

        Thank you for your question. Yes we have the front tire in the applicable size. The rear tire we have in a 180/55-17. Which is about 5 millimeters taller; you shouldn't have any issues with that subtle difference.

        A:

        Thanks for the question! In order to verify the size. We recommend you check the current size on your bike which should be located on the side of the tire.

        Answered on 9/16/2011 by Anonymous
      • A:

        It will most likely not fit. The biggest tire i've known to fit on a 250 is a 140, and it rubs at high speeds. This would severely upset your quick handling anyway, even if the bigger size did fit.

    • Q:

      Fitment for Moto Guzzi Breva 750 ie

      I would like to upgrade to radial tires on by Breva 750. Rims are 17x3 & 17x3.5. I was thinking that going to 120/60-r17 (f) & 140/70-r17 (r) would work.

      Can you tell me which rims are required for these sizes, as well as total width of the tires (for clearance)?

      Thanks!

    • Q:

      Will the 180-55-17 tire fit on a 5.0' wide rim?

      The rim is a stock PM piece on a 1999 Buell X1.
      I will worry about surrounding clearances if I could at least get the specs of the tire/s.
      A link to the manufacturers specifications and/or a list/pdf of all tire specs may prevent returns.?

        Thanks for your question! When we checked through Dunlop they let us know that the stock 170 sizing would be the biggest you would be able to go with for your machine, they are showing that the 180 would be too wide.

        A:

        Unfortunately we would not be able to confirm if this would work correctly on your machine. We know it would fit the rim but are not sure if this would fit on the machine while on the rim. You will need to measure or check around the machine to see if this would clear your machine. We are only able to confirm stock OEM sizes.
