Shinko 700 Dual Sport Tires 4.6 5 16 16
Excellent tire for the price Great road manners and still capable off road. Wearing much better on the highway than my tkc-80. February 2, 2015
Great for price These were the first enduro tires my XR600R had seen so I'm comparing them to the previous dirt tires - on pavement. As you'd expect, these are much better at everything. Even on gravelly single track. I bought them because of the overall cheapest price and best online reviews across many different sites and forums. I've ridden in all types of terrain, including ice and snow, interstate speeds and on rocky hill climbs on dirt-only trails. These tires did much better off road than I had expected and they're relatively smooth at high speeds. I didn't get the tires balanced when I installed them [myself] so I have a minor vibration at 65+mph, but it's not so bad as to be alarming. Overall I would recommend these tires to anyone looking for cheap good enduro tires. I ride daily and have had the tires for several months and haven't noticed any significant wear yet, so that's good. And everyone lived happily ever after. The end. December 15, 2014
Excellent Dual Sport tire! I sort of had doubts with this tire and they don't look as aggressive as the Kenda270s they replaced but the reviews were great and I can confirm its an awesome tire! I took these on 2 2400ish miles motorcycle trips, the 2nd trip was a true dual sport adventure and they delivered! I've taken these tires in desert, rocky gravel, forest, sand, deep sand, and tarmac. They never disappointed except maybe the deep beach sand but by the time I got to the beach I had already more than 4k on them already. Slab its great, better than the 270s, they don't flex when you lean, and give great traction. Forest roads no problem great traction. Mud it can do but not the best, the tread will clog up fast. Wet pavement I never had a problem, of course I took it easy. Desert sand it handles it very well, you just have to get them to float on the looser stuff so speeds of 25+ and they're doin it. Deep beach or dune sand it had trouble but like I said already more than half way worn and I have little experience riding deep sand on 2 wheels. If you are going in some loose stuff suggest airing down. I had a Michelin T63 up front and this combo is great, the T63 helped a lot and much better than the K270s. Also the bike was weighed down quite a bit with camping gear most of the time. I have 5000+ miles on them and they look about 3/4 done, if I am going on another long adventure ride I would change em now but for anything else I wouldn't hesitate to still ride it. They have very small cracks where the lugs meet the rest of the tire but nothing I'm worried about, I was pretty rough on them. October 30, 2014
Great bang for your buck! Too soon for review so far a little squirrely on the street. Need to be broken in off road seems to reduce my front end wash out considerably! Great bang for your buck! October 6, 2014
OK tire for low price This tire performs fine but wears quickly on KLR650. Expect about 4k miles out of the rear in 80/20 dual sport riding. July 21, 2014
Great for the money I ride a lot of adventure type dirt roads and trails. This tire does not disappoint, when I want to climb a hill it listens and I can walk up any hill I want to. And when I'm done on the dirt this tire will then hold 70 on the highway all the way back to the house. It serves the purpose I bought it for and for the price I can't find any problems. July 14, 2014
Great tire, great price I have this tire for about 3 months now, and I can say they feel great in the road and better offroad. They still look as new and have around 1,500 kms now. I also have another shinko 005 in a versys and that one has 16,000 kms and still have around 20% thread life. July 10, 2014
Works Tried a Kenda that was AWEFUL. Total high speed wobble. Shinko works well. Smooth & passable in the dirt. June 30, 2014

A S asked: How does the 5.10-17 compare to a 140/80-17 as far as size? Apr 27, 2014

Dan A: The 5.10-17 is equal to a 130/80-17. Apr 27, 2014

Jean L: The metric size gives you the width and height aspect, it is basically the same as the 5.10 inch. You can use a conversion tool for the exact number, unfortunately the 5.10 doesn't give you the height aspect. Other than that this is a good tire, I have it on my WR250R, and it is great on the road, and in dirt. I do 90% road. Apr 28, 2014

George T: Not exactly sure. But if my math is right, 140mm width is 5.52 inches, (140/25.4) so the 140/80 should be.0.42 inches wider than the 5.10-17. Not sure how the heights compare. I suggest you go on Shinko's website and pose the question to them.

What I can tell you is that I wore out the 700 rear on my Suzuke DR650 on an Alaskan trip in 4300 miles of 90% pavement riding. In Anchorage I picked up a slightly used Kenda D270 5.10X17 rear at Motoquest. I have 6000 miles on the used tire and still have another thousand miles of tread left. I got 9000 miles on the 21" Shinko 700 front tire before I replaced it just recently with a Kenda D270 21" front.

A shopper asked: I need the 21 up front and the 18 in the rear. Are these tubeless tires? If not what size tube do I need? I'm new at this. Jeff Aug 20, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ernst E: Jeff,
the tires are labeled TT for tube type and TL for tubeless. The TL tire can be used with a tube on the rim as well as without. It depends on your rim. Your motorcycles manual should inform you if your rims need tubes.

For example my KLR 650 needs tubes since it has sprocket rims. So for me the TL or TT type is mute (I prefer the TL since its sidewall is stronger).

As for the tire size, consult your manual, and if you google "motorcycle tire size chart" you will find links to cross-references for the different tire labelings.

Have fun riding.

Christopher W: Speaking only for the 21" front tire it is tubless. When looking at the tire specs, TL is for tubeless and TT is for tubed type.

I run the OEM tube from my Tiger in the tubeless tire with no issues.

robert h: I'm running these tires on a KLR650 with spoked wheels so I have to run tubes in them. Great tires by the way! Aug 21, 2013
Reply to robert Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
George T: Yes, these are tube-type tires. Get tubes to fit-- a 3.0 x 21" front and a 4.60/ 5.10 x 18" rear. Aug 21, 2013
Reply to George Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Jean L: I'm pretty sure these tires can run tubeless, but do you have tubeless rims. My bike WR250r has spokes, and tubes. As for the size, not sure, as I just used my original tube, but tube size is directly related to tire size. Good luck!
BTW nice tire for me so far.

Russell S: No they are not tubeless. Just call whoever you are buying the tubes from, and they will tell you what you need based on the tire size. Aug 22, 2013

Philip T asked: I have a BMW G650 XCountry and the book says to use a 130/80-17 will a 5.10-17 fit?
Looking a a Shinko 244 or 700.
Aug 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dan A: The sizes are basically the the same. The 5.10-17 might be slightly narrower but not enough to even notice. I have both of those tires on two dualsports. The 244 is slightly better for more trail riding but I have not had any problems with the 700. In fact I am quite impressed about the performance of the 700. I have about 3000 miles on the 700 and can easily see getting another 3000 before it needs to be replaced. The 244 has about 1000 miles on it and is holding up well. Aug 19, 2014
Reply to Dan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jean L: According to a tire conversion chart, 130 is almost exactly 5.10 inch, and the 80 aspect ratio should be similar. You usually have quite a bit of size choices on a rear wheel, up to a point. The 5.10 should be a perfect fit. Also the Shinko 700 is a nice tire, I did almost 10,000 klicks on my WR250R, mostly road, but still a fantastic off road 60-40 percent tire. Good luck Aug 19, 2014
