They only last around 11k to 12 k on the 1500 Goldwing just got a 1800 so I thought I'd buy 1 for each bike for the rear yeah I could spend 90 to 130 more on a rear tire but why 2k thousand miles more on a rear with Dunlop or 1500 with other brands I can take 1 hour and 45 mins to change a tire out on the 1500 wing. and 35 mins on the 1800.
Jeff S on Mar 28, 2020
I have a 2012 GL1800 Comfort,NAV,ABS and have put 15000 miles on my Shinko SE890 tires with no problems. The only reason I am replacing because front tire a little cupped but less than other tires I have uses. I will use beads in this tire change to eliminate the cupping. I think these tires would go another 5000 highway miles.

I like the tread design and yes, the price. I wanted to go with the Commander ll but does not fit my Honda VTX 1800N. Also reviews are great on this tire. Will comment after long trip planned if the Corona Virus lets me. 72 Years old. Thanks Bike Bandit for great prices. Joe Makin.
Emil M on Mar 5, 2020
I have used shinko tires for years on my heavy cruisers. I am happy with the price and the longevity of the tire. They last about 10 to 12 thousand miles.

I am a 4 season rider in Texas where you can have 4 seasons in the same day, for ride-ability, durability, and cost effectiveness these tires work very well on my Goldwing 1800. W/ 13K miles + on the 1st set this will be the second set of SE890's.

I used shinko tires many times and i never had a problem. Tires perform awesome in corners, and you also get a lot of miles out of them. All around awesome tire.

Price. Never tried Shinko, but have heard good things from those who have. Tread pattern very similar to Avon Cobra tires.

I had good results on a 750cc cruiser , tired the SE890 Shinko for my Victory Cross Country , pleased with the results , i expected hard compound tire for high mileage, not a wet rain rider i can manage that for the price value

They are half the price of the Metzeler Marathon tires that I have been running. The ME880 last one riding season so I decided to give these a try.
Phillip B on Jun 10, 2019
I am replacing the a set of these that I have run for two years. They performed flawlessly on a trip to Main and a trip the tail of the the dragon and snake. The tires lasted approximately 12000-14000 miles. A good value in my book.

How will the ride characteristics change when running these radials front a d back on my gl1500?
JEFFERY B on Jul 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question Jefferey. These tires perform well in a straight line and on cornering. You will find them to be a good addition to most bikes. One thing I would recommend is referring to your current tires for the load index just to make sure they are comparable to your current set up and proper for your specific bike.

What’s the difference between a 180/60-16 and a
180/65-16 ?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The 60 will have a slightly shorter side wall. The 180 is the width (180 mm), the 60 (or 65) is the side wall in percentage relative to the width, So the 60 sidewall is 60% of the 180 width, and of course the 65 is 65% of the sidewall width. So for instance a 100/60 is 100 mm wide and 60 mm sidewall (60% of 100). And the wheel size of course is the 16 portion. Hope this helps.
Is this tire recommended for 2002 Honda Goldwing
biggin on May 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! This tire is designed for heavyweight cruiser machines like yours. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
How recently were these tires manufactured?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee that but we do know most if not all our tires are usually within a year of the manufacture date. We do not stock large amounts of tires at our location so most tires are shipped directly from the tire manufacturer's closest warehouse to you.

All tires sold by BikeBandit.com are well within the manufacturer's suggested shelf life for tires. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
Is this tire hard or soft ?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2019

Excellent price
I had talked to a few people that had Shinko Tires on their bikes, everyone was satisfied. I have had mine for about a month and put about 500 miles on them, no complains. The tire rides well, good traction, and hold the road well in the twisties. I ride a Victory Cross Roads Eight Ball, the tires suit the bike well. Very Happy.

Most Excellent Handling tires
I am so glad I let my local Honda shop in Forest City, NC. Install new tires. I cannot believe how much better bike handles. Had the German tires on before I changed to Shinkos. Honda shop was going to charge almost 725.00 for new tires plus install of 60 more plus tax. Love the new Shinkos. Was very hard to find right size Honda VTX 1800N3. Shinko had my size and shipping was free and quick. Thanks Bike Bandit. Joe Makin

Good price point tires
Have bought several sets of these for my VTX 1800. They run good but don't get quite the mileage of Dunlop E3's. Best for those who only ride under 8,000 miles per year...

First Impression
I haven't had an opportunity to put many miles on our GoldWing since the new tires were put on, but first impression... a good value and good feel in the 150 miles I've driven so far. Probably not achieved a real 'break in' yet, but ... so far I like these tires!

rear tire 2013 cross country tour
I admit I was a little apprehensive when I considered the purchase. But I cant say enough about how happy I am with my gamble. I have put 1320Mls on since, and not one problem. The dealer that did the mount & balance told me, he never felt a tire that size that felt that heavy,And sturdy. he is waiting on my opinion after a couple thousand Mls. GREAT BUY Tommy
