Shinko's 520 series soft/intermediate-to-hard terrain tire has reinforced knobs that resist tearing and chunking. The tread pattern works well in a wide variety of soil conditions.

Comments about Shinko 520 Motorcycle Tire:
I bought this tire at the same time my buddy bought a higher dollar bridgestone and my tire is holding up as well as his and we are avid ridders. we ride every week for 6 to 12 hours a week. We do alot of climbing and this tire has held up no chunking hardly wore down at all and i have probly 100 to 150 hrs on this tire. i just wish i would of went with a 120 instead of a 110. This is a great tire and not just for the price
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quality and a great price
Great quality product [...]. Will buy from again without hesitation.

gnarly tread huge knobs, I rode it here in mid michigan, in the mud/clay, it hooked up with very little spin. I am waiting to get it in hard pack to see if it will rip apart. very nice tire for the price.
Good Rear, Poor Front
By Jonny Upchuck
from LaFayette, GA
I purchased these tires to replace a pair of Bridgestone 404's on a KTM 525 dualsport. I live in NW, GA and during a ride I see a diverse section of trails from rocky, hard pack, sandy, muddy, and slick greasy clay as well as pavement. The 520 intermediates seamed like they should be able to handle these broad sections of terrain. Upon receiving the tires, I was immediately skeptical of the side lugs on the rear tire. The tech who installed the tires said the same thing "don't lean over to far or you will rip those knobs off." The Good:I have 300 miles on the tires now, about 130 of those on the pavement. The tires are holding up great with little wear if any, and no lugs ripped or missing on the front or rear. The rear tire hooks up great, provides much confidence when exiting corners, and allows for great throttle steering control. The Bad:The front tire is good for nothing, does not hook up on any of the aforementioned surfaces. I have tried airing the tire down and up. I have messed with the front fork settings, but the front tire does not like biting into surfaces if its dry, wet, or rocky. I have close to ZERO confidence that the front tire will hold in a corner. Planning on swapping out the front for a softer compound.
