      Comments about Shinko Moped Tire:

      This is my second set of Shinko Golden Boys. I found them moderately easy to put on, with a little windex. For the price, they can't really be beat. They are actually made in Korea but for a Japanese company. Most impressive was the incredibly speedy shipping of the tires and the tubes. I would buy them again without hestiation.

          Perfect replacement for the 35 year old tires on an older moped I restored. Fit well, ride well, handle the 25 mph speeds easily. What more could you ask for at these prices ?

          • Q:

            Is the 16" tread compatable in the rain? The tread design doesn't look like a gripper to me.

              A:

              Thank you for your question! This tire can be used in wet weather conditions as this does have grooving to allow the water to exit from the contact patch. We checked for other tire options in this sizing but did not see any offered. You may get more options to choose from if you convert your tire size to the metric size. You may checked for a tire size conversion chart online through Google. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

          • Q:

            compatibility/specs... I'm interested in the SR242 MC tire at 2.50X17''... correct size for my application to my CL70 Honda. Trouble is I like the tread design of the moped tire 2.25 X 17"...
            Too narrow. Any guidance on this ? Anything on the drawing board I'd be advised to wait for ?

              Thanks for your question! You cannot use a rear designated tire as a front tire. You are able to purchase tubes at the same time you purchase tires.

            Can you have the same tire/tread on the front and the back of a moped? Currently I have a 2.25 x 17 on back and on the front it's a 2 x 17 with a different tread.

              Thank you for your Question! You would be able to have the same Tire Thread on both Front and Rear just as long as the tire state that it is meant to be ran on both Front & Rear.

              Thanks for writing in! It is recommended to have the same tread pattern on the front or rear but it is ok to have different tread patterns.

            You show two different tread designs. Can either be ordered, or is it only one based on size? I need a 2.25 x 16. What are the advantages of each, or does it matter?
