Longevity, performance and price. Had a pair and purchasing again.
Jeff B on Aug 12, 2020
This is my 5th Shinko 705 rear tire on my KLR. I get 3k to 4k miles out of each tire - for the price the economics probably work out similar to a more expensive tire that lasts longer. I keep coming back because I like the performance, both on pavement and in the dirt. When I bought the bike it had knobbies, and I found that this tire behaved better in the dirt than the knobby, which was a nice surprise.

Jeff B on Aug 12, 2020
Affordable price, excellent street-tire performance in terms of canyon handling and freeway ride. Rear tire lasted about 6,000 miles on my 2008 KLR650; front still has a couple thousand more miles, but I'm changing both at same time.

Christopher K on Jul 31, 2020
Greater requirement to ride down hard packed dirt roads and wanted something more orientated to this environment than PR4s (which are great paved road tires, 14,770+ miles). Price point versus other dual sport tires is a real advantage.

I want to ride more fire roads and some light off-road on my DRZ400SM so I will give these a try.
Craig D on Jul 11, 2020
These tires work great for me and I've never found a better value. They stick to the road wet or dry, they handle the occasional gravel road I find myself on, and the mileage is good (7-8 thousand on the rear, 20 thousand on the front). I've tried other tires but they cost a lot more and don't give me any added benefits.
Michael M on Jul 9, 2020

Valentin B on Jul 4, 2020
Good price and easy navigation through web site.
Leroy C on Jul 3, 2020
High value for the money, and I needed a tire for my KLR650 that was more oriented to the street than the Shinko 244 or 700, since I do 80+% of my riding on pavement, maybe 10% on gravel roads, and even less off-road.

I have ridden many miles with other shinko tires and decided that I wanted to use these on my new Triumph Tiger 1200. Getting a very large chunk of metal in my rear tire at 4000 miles just sped up buying upgraded tires.

Steve K on May 27, 2020
Going to sell bike, want to remove the anaki wilds before it gets test driven (Suzuki DL650) as they are a bit over-eager in corners compared to regular tires. It's unlike the buyer will do as much or as aggressive of offroading as i did and won't make use of the wild's anyway.

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.

Is this tire tubed or tubeless, its listed under tubed?
null on Sep 15, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! This tire will come in both tubeless and tube styles.
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?

What is recommended to inflate psi in the 170/60-17 size?
Luis V on May 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You would need to look at the recommended pressure on the motorcycle or in the manual. You can deflate it down when off-road for better traction. Before on road you want to have it up at the recommended pressure per your manual.

A shopper on Sep 10, 2019

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.
I want to buy this Shinko 705 for my bike. However, bike currently has 110/90-18. How’s the 120/80-18 is different from 110/90?? Thank you.
Daniel R on May 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 120/80 Its 10 mm wider and a little taller (12 mm), so it really depends on the bike you have, the clearance you have around the swing arm. If you have the clearance, then you would just need to either adapt your riding to a taller tire. Or adjust the rear suspension accordingly (again depending on the bike). You are increasing the width ever so slightly more, so rotation corner to corner maybe a little slower but you may not notice a difference. Again, depends on the bike.
i want to fit a set to an OLD '70 triumph 500, what is the difference between the 4.10x18 and the 120/80x18 for the rear?...and i just may put em on my modern bonne as well! thanks.
A shopper on Jan 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The difference between a 4.10 x 18 and a 120/80-18, other than one being metric and the other being standard, is the width. the 120/80-18 will be about half an inch wider.

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.

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.

Great tires
I put these tires on the front and rear of my 1200GS. I loaded the bike with gear and rode two up for 4 days and did over 1400 miles. We rode through some strong thunderstorms and they handled the rain, gravel roads, and intense heat very well. They barely look worn in. I'd buy them again!

Lasted as long as a Metzler
This is the second time I purchased this tire, the Metzler that I put on last time might of got 500 miles more then Shinko 705 but it hit my wallet for 175.00 (OUCH) The 60.00-70.00 $ range is well worth it. 2000 BMW F650

I’m going on my second season with with these on the front and tread is still strong, just matched my rear, looks great! Maybe a slight vibration from the knobiness of the tires but the looks/price factor makes it a non issue for me.

High value for a dual use tire
I only have 50 miles on them so far, so I can't vouch for long term wear. They are definitely more oriented for street use, work okay on gravel, not so good on soft ground. They are much quieter than the Dunlop 606 I replaced. As long as most of your riding is on paved or packed gravel roads, they are an excellent value. For going off road, you will need to compromise road handling to get a tire with more knobby tread. No surprise there.

Easy to swap out in the driveway.
I wasn’t expecting the tire to be as good as it is. Soon as it arrived the block pattern looked more road friendly then the OEM my Himalayan came with. I wasn’t disappointed with it on the freeway. It’s quiet and grips wet or dry. I put 9,000 miles on the stock MT60 I’m hoping to get at least 8000 miles from this tire. If not the price is still hard to beat and it was a breeze to change with simple tire spoons.

Very Good Value
Bought these for my Ducati multistrada 1200 enduro. They're good off road ie. Gravel and dirt, haven't had them in mud yet, have good wet pavement traction and are surprisingly good cornering on dry pavement as well.

perfect all round tire for my Suzuki V Strom 650.
i ride probably 90% on pavement in western Colorado and these tire feel great in the turns. the little time i spend on dirt roads these tires get the job done just fine. great tire for the kind of riding I do.
