These tires got the looks!

Comments about Shinko 006 Podium Motorcycle Tire:

Fits my 09 ninja 250r perfectly, the rear tire looks way better than the OEM size and feels better on higher speeds .. I gotta say I got way more stability on turns. The only thing I didn't like is that I can't do wheelies like I used to but it's for my own good.

Tires are horrible!!!

Comments about Shinko 006 Podium Motorcycle Tire:

I put these on a 1995 Cbr 900 that I found all original without a scratch with only 2764miles. The rear only lasted about 2400 miles. The front is still ok but does show wear from braking and being leaned over. Hard to see I pics. The rear is done. I live in Anderson SC and have rode up to deals gap twice with these tires. Stayed the two days once and ran about 400 miles. Ran about 100 miles the second time. This was also just this month November. The rear does not feel stuck to the road leaned over after you have them worn in a little. Most riding is short trips less than 20 mile one way. And I ride at an average pace no where near leaned over knee dragging style. The rear always feels like it's struggling to stay with the bike. Front is ok but I will never buy another set of shinkos. And no I'm not a straight line hero. In third gear at about 4000 to 6000rpm the rear should not be struggling at half lean on smooth roads.

Comments about Shinko 006 Podium Motorcycle Tire:

First off, the pictures don't do these tires justice as the tread looks pretty sick in person. Got these for my old 1992 Kawasaki ZX6. For the price these are great tires. They grip the road well in turns and hold up very well in the rain, not a lot more you could ask for in this price range. Yeah it would be nice if the tires lasted longer, but it's a trade off. The stickier the tire, the shorter the lifespan.

      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.

      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.

    • 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.?

      A:

      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.
