Would you buy this for a Harley sportster?
Todx S on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! It's really a personal preference along with the style of riding you do. Skip provided some insight on the tire, it's a hard tire and takes about 500-1k to break in. So if I had to purchase tires for my Sportster I would definitely consider these tires.

After reading some reviews it seems this tire does not have a good load rating.

You list the rigth size for my 1999 Suzuki intruder 1500. Are these tires good for this mike?
Pete on Jan 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I checked with Shinko, and they are perfect for this bike.

I ordered the tires from BikeBandit, and the numbers match the size and rating for this bike.

They are absolutely wonderful tires !!!

See letter from Shinko below.
Hi Peter,
They are plenty heavy for your bike, max load for those sizes is 761 lbs front and 882 lbs rear.

Thanks,

I have a 1965 Yamaha YJ2S. And I am looking to put a bigger set of tires on it. Will these tires work with no problems? Or will it be more trouble then its worth? I have on it now a Shinko 244 2.50-17.
2cycledude on Oct 31, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! 2.50/2.75-17 would convert to a metric size of 80/90-17 for a front tire. The Shinko 230 Tour Master Motorcycle Tire does not list a size which will work as a replacement for the required size needed. It is recommended to contact the sales department as they will be able to assist you further with locating the correct tires.

Is this a radial or bias ply? Why does it have a higher speed rating and load rating than higher priced tires?
slick on Sep 19, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
i need a modern tire that will fit my 1973 honda 500 four i have installed dual disc brakes on this bike and must have a tire for the front that measures 325x19 any wider will cause difficulties mounting the wheel.
im old school and dont quite understand the metric conversion system thanks for your help
batch on Aug 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The conversion chart specifies that a 3.25x19 tire is equal to a 100/90 -19 sized tire. Which is available in the Shinko 230 Tourmaster tire.
