Comments about Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire:

I got a 230 rear to replace a 712 shinko I havent ridden much yet but the big grove in the middle makes it wiggle around the 712 was awesome I got a matching front 230 but got the wrong size somehow bb wouldnt exchage it and I had to pay to ship it back ups $16 and $9 for no cardboard around it I got a 100/90-19 instead of a 110/90-19 and it would only go on 3/4 of the way on the rim I knew it was to tight it would have bent the rim and or broke the tire as I did it before on another bike the wire came out of the tire and the rim bent

Outstanding Ride Quality

Comments about Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire:

Put these on my '02 Shadow VLX. The first thing I noticed riding these home from the shop is how much better the ride quality and feedback from the road was compared to the Dunlops they replaced. As they break in a bit, that ride quality just seems to improve.

The most marked difference is cornering; that's their natural place in the world; around the twisties. They stick through a corner better than anything else I've felt. Despite having a great feel cornering, they hold a straight line at highway speeds great, too.

Another big difference in ride quality is in handling bumps, ruts, potholes, and the like. They definitely work in concert with the suspension better, and provide a ride that is just perfect for me. Just the right balance between soft and stiff; improved road feedback, but the ruts, bumps and potholes I hit on my commute which used to nearly bottom out my front suspension are dramatically decreased.

Finally, the cool, aggressive-looking tread pattern that stands out from the sea of Dunlops on all the mid-weight cruisers out there, is great.

My only downside thus far is that they do take a little bit longer to get warmed up than the Dunlops, but that's a minor nit to pick.

No comment on wear, but since I have a relatively lightweight motorcycle, and don't ride it loaded up too heavy most of the time, I expect good things from them.

I ordered the Shinko 230 tour master for my 2008 Heritage. I have around 400 miles on it so far and loooooove it! I was quite impressed with the shipping time. It arrived on my door in 3 days!

Nice tires

Comments about Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire:

Installed these on my VTX 1300. Had to order a size wider for the front as they don't carry the 140mm. Both front and rear were very easy to install for my first time installing tires. Just used a good lube and they slipped right on and the bead popped right away. Shipping was quick as always every time I've ordered from Bike Bandit.

  • 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
