I've used the Shinko 705 on my DR650 for the past few years and have been very happy with them -- very good tire in all road conditions, and they offer good mileage also. For a budget tire, they perform remarkably well.
James W on Oct 21, 2019
I have been using Shinko tires on many bikes over the past several years and have always been pleased with their performance. 705s in particular have performed as well on my Tenere as tires that cost twice as much. Great grip wet or dry and they last as long as some, not as long as some others. However I have found that tires that last longer do not give me the peg scraping confidence I get with the Shinkos, and they are great on the dirt roads I ride around here.

Hello, after coming across of Shinko's 705 a couple of times as a suggested tire in forums related to my bike (2014 Honda NC700X) i started looking for reviews and basically all are good and people actually repeated the brand an model. Price is also very good....

Troy M on Jul 1, 2019
Great tire! I ride a 2014 Versys 650 with 30000 miles on her. The rear tires last 6000 miles and the front gets double that. Good rain tire and adequate for light off-road.
John T on Jul 1, 2019
I have heard good things. Looking for better on-road handling.
William S on Jun 29, 2019
I have these on another street bike. They are as good as any street tire I've had, but they are night and day better that street tires when I encounter dirt, sand, or gravel. Very confidence inspiring!

Will the 120/80-18 tire fit Bonneville T120 front wheel? The stock tire is 100/90-18. Thanks
A shopper on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question! The 120/80-18 tire will fit the front wheel on your T120 but consider the extra width and height this new tire size will bring. You should be fine, but it never hurts to double check and take a quick measurement of breathing room.

I have a Ural sidecar rig. The tire size I'm interested in is 110/80-19 which is designated as a front tire. I would like to use this size tire for my rear drive wheel on my rig. I am wanting to do this to have a smaller wheel diameter than stock to up the engine RPM at highway speeds. I have read that the Urals use two different size wheels. 18 and 19 inchs wheels. The 18 inch is able to go faster than the 19" due to higher engine rpm. Mine is 19 inch and can barely hold 55 mph. I only want 60.Can you tell me if using the front as a rear would be okay or not.Thank you for your help.
country3wheeler on Nov 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It is not recommended to use a front tire on a rear tire application. The shape is completely different and can affect handling. In this case your bike is equipped with a side car, so the shape may not be as crucial. One thing to consider is, will the front tires have the load index to handle the weight of your Rig? Are parts readily available for the bike, it would be easier to replace a sprocket than a wheel.

Can one mix bias ply and radial on same bike? Bias Ply Front - Radial Rear
Rocky H on Jun 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: YES YOU CAN, and must to match OEM, in the case of the Honda Africa Twin. My new 2018 Adventure Sports came from the factory with a radial rear & bias front. The Shinko 705s match that. The OEM Dunlop tires were tube type, and these are tubeless, but putting in a tube as required by the rims works just fine as well.
Tube included?

I have a 1983 Honda XL600R. It originally came with tubed bias ply dual sport tires. Can I mount a tubeless tire on the rim, or will it leak through the spokes?
null on Jun 23, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! If you were to order the Shinko 705 Motorcycle Tire you would still need to run a tube in your tire.

Will the 170/60 17 fit triumph T120? This Bonneville tires size is 150/70 R17, 17 4.25 wide. Customizing to a street scrambler. Trying to use stock rims.
George B on Jun 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: George, thank you for the question. The 170/60-17 will mount on to your rims. The actual conversion with the aspect ratio of the width of the tire between these two sizes is almost identical. Therefore, you should have no clearance issues or anything of that sort.

This tire is listed as tubless and I need a tube type. Can I run this tire with a tube?
Rider Ron on Jul 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question. The designation of "Tube Type" means that the tire is made to hold air without a tube, but you can run a tube in the tire without a problem.
what is the difference between tubeless and tube type, and will a tubeless work on a tube type?
Arlin on Jun 22, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for writing in! Tube type requires a tube be used with a tire. You can use a tube in a tubeless tire, you just cannot run without a tube in a tube type tire.
I am considering this tire for my '98 Honda XR400R. It's street legal and I'd like to ride it primarily on road. It says the tire sizes are Front: 80/100 - 18 and Rear: 110/100 - 17. Can you tell me what size is compatible with my bike?
Johann on Jun 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Based on the tire sizes, these will not be compatible for your machine.
I know the manufacturer makes this tire in a 90/90-21 size but this is not an option on your website. Since this is a very common size for dual sport tires are you simply out of stock or do you just not carry that size?
null on Jun 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Good question! Looks like they do manufacture the tire in that size 90/90-21 but currently do not have available on site to order. We can try and put a push to get available on the site I have put a push on that size to include up on the site.
is this tire tubeless?
null on May 28, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! This can be used as a tube/tubless application.
I am interested in purchasing these tires for my bobber project, but want to make sure that the sizes listed here are compatible with my rim sizes. I am having a difficult time cross referencing tire and rim sizes.

front will be the 90/90-21 bias ply tire which would be mounted to a 1.6 x 21 spoke rim.

rear will be the 130/80-17 bias ply tire which would be mounted to a 2.17 x 17 spoke rim.

Thanks for any help.

Todd
todd on Apr 9, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes those sizes will work with those rims.
Hi
My front is a 100/90/19
Will this Shinko 110/80/19 work ok?
And should I run the radial instead of Bias ply on the front?
there is no radial option for the rear in the shinko (130/80/17)

bmw f-650gs

Thanks!
Russ
Got2Moto on Aug 11, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! We recommend to use the correct tire size for your bike as there may be clearance issues. It is important to use the same make-up of tire on the front and rear. If you are running a Bias-Ply in the year, you should run a Bias Ply in the front. If you have any further questions you can contact our sales team 7 days a week at 888-339-3888.
My bike, KZ400 calls for a 3.50 s18. I am looking at the 705 and 244 for my rear, the 244 says it fits does the 705? Also do they have a similar for my front which calls for 3.25 s18? Thank you!
DC on Apr 26, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, the 705 is not offered in the size you are looking for. The 705 and the 244 are not offered for your front. The Shinko 230 and 712 would work for your front 100/90/18.
Can I run a tubless tire on a dr350se standard rim?

I am considering the 21" front but I see it is tubless. Will that work on a '99 Suz DR350? Thanks
Cajuncowboy on Jan 27, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! The Shinko 705 Motorcycle Tire that your looking at will work on tube type and tubeless type rims.

Great on gravel, awful wet grip on road
(Riding a Honda XR650L) I ordered these tires and installed them, took a trip of several hundred miles, mix of pavement, gravel, and some true off-road jeep trails. I was honestly impressed with how well this tire did off-road, better than I would have expected based on the tread pattern. On road I found them lacking, especially once it started raining, the front was very twitchy and slid on me several times. I will be removing these ASAP!

Great Tire, Fantastic Value
I mounted the Shinko 705’s on my Triumph Tiger 1050, and headed to Big Bend National Park. I rode around 400 miles in and out of the park. This was a 50/50 ride (road/dirt), with paved roads being dry with tons of curves. The grip on the road was fine with no issues. The only complaint would be the sluggish steering compared to the Avon’s I removed. Off-road riding was sand and rocks. Billions of sharp rocks! The 705’s handled off-road riding with no issues, and moderate wear. These tires had very twitchy steering in the sand, I’ll attribute this to the 17” front tire.
Note: These tires are mounted with their tread facing in opposite directions (front chevron tread facing rearward, rear facing forward. I verified this with a call to Shinko).

Not good for large Adventure bike. ??
Bike, R1200gsa. Route, Maine to Los Angeles. Started out great. Smooth and traction in the rain was great. Really enjoyed it till I got to New Mexico. While filling my fuel tank, I did a once over check fluid levels and tires. That’s where I noticed that to tire was falling apart! I thankfully made it to the next town that has a replacement tire. It might be due to the weight of my bike but it was disappointing. Maybe a lighter bike wouldn’t experience the issue.

Great value
Shinko 705's are a really good tire. Combine that with their price and you have a great value for your Adventure Tourer. Love them for my 1200 Explorer XRT. Got about 11,000 miles on the rear tire, and I'll probably come close to doubling that on the front.

Very smooth for my dual sport. I mostly ride street. Grip is nice and good tread. No problem doing a nice lean with these tires.
