    Comments about Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire:

    The best tire I've found, especially for the price. I was only getting 8,000 miles from Dunlops
    and got 12,000 from Shenko's, which is why I bought them again. I've rode 75 mph in downpouring rain and even drag the pegs sometimes and these tires stick to the road.

    GREAT Tires for the $$

    from Dallas, Tx

    Comments about Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire:

    First I just bought one of these for the rear, and got 8k out of it, vs 4k out of Dunlop D404's. The ride was improved so much that this time I bought a full set to give them an honest shot. The old Yokohama molds Shinko bought are really paying off. These tires handle very well, have EXCELLENT wear, and are good in both wet and dry weather (just rode them about 70 miles in the rain last night). The only difference I've found between these and the ever popular Dunlop D205's is that these only have one Aramid belt on the tread instead of 2, and they last considerably longer than the D205's. For anyone who doesn't know, the V65 Sabre I ride is a 580lb bike, and I have it loaded down and ride 2up most of the time, making it a pretty heavy load on the tires, and these tires handle it great. If you've been thinking about those radial tires, but the cost has kept you away, give these tires a try. Great traction wet or dry, long life, and handles heavy loads with ease, for a price you can't beat :)

    Service and delivery comments:

    GREAT prices, FAST shipping, Great customer service!

      Comments about Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire:

      I am running these on a yamaha vmax. The bike had 404's on it when I got it and I replaced those with the shinko 230's. I'm running a size bigger on the rear. My first replacement set wore flat on the rear and feathered on the front. I'm not sure how many miles I got from them, but it was at least 4,500. I will document this set. I'm running higher pressures in this set, so hopefully they will wear better. Traction is great with these tires. I ride pretty hard half the time and drag pegs with the bike being stock height. For the price, these tires imo are a great value. But if this new set doesn't get over 6k miles, I will try a different brand. They were fairly easy to mount and balanced easily. They also run pretty true.

      Comments about Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire:

      I have used the Shinko TourMaster 230 Bias 150/90-15 V for my last 3 rear Tires on my 2000 Yamaha VMax.
      This is by far the Stickiest Rear Tire I have ever used.
      It inspires confidence in the Twisties even at 2x the posted corner Speeds and is very Stable at Speed in the Staright Aways.
      It handles Great Wet or Dry at High and Low Speeds.
      I have consistantly gotten 4500-5000 Miles out of each of these Tires and that is right on par with every Rear Tire I have ever used (Dunlop, Michelin, BridgeStone, etc) over the last 12 years on my VMax and at a far lower cost.
      If you have a High Torgue, High HorsePower motorcycle this Tire will Not disappoint you.

      • Q:

        Hey ya'll, I am wondering if the one size that has the 77 rating, I believe it is a 140/80-16 77 will replace the OEM tire on my Harley. The OEM is of course a 402 Dunlop and the size is MU85 B 16.
        will it fit with no clearance issues?

        I love the Shinko TourMaster and hope it will. Thank you for your time

        Is this a radial or bias ply? Why does it have a higher speed rating and load rating than higher priced tires?

          A:

          Thank you for your question. The Shinko 230 Tour Master tire is in a radial construction. The touring tires typically have a higher load and speed index, due to the highway speeds and long distance riding. Shinko has made a great line of tires that are very affordable.
