Shinko 700 Dual Sport Tires
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.

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.

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.

Tried a Kenda that was AWEFUL. Total high speed wobble.
Shinko works well. Smooth & passable in the dirt.

Can't beat them for the price.
Haven't had them long enough to comment on tread life, but they ride good on the gravel and are not to noisy on the pavement.

Great tire. Best bang for the buck on my KLR 650
These tires are much better than the stock Dunlops the bike comes with. Better control on gravel and smooth on pavement. I only have just over 200 miles on mine but there is no sign of wear yet. I have not ridden in wet conditions yet but foresee no problems as they grip well on everything else I have tried. Very impressed with them on gravel. RevZilla will be the only place I purchase them. Great customer service and super fast shipping combined with terrific deals.

Reliable and affordable
I've used Shinko tires on my last 3 bikes, all dual sport. I've gotten great mileage from them, 6 to 8k on the rear. I'm not a hard core single track rider. I ride 10 to 12k miles a year, mixed dirt and pavement and 700s have helped keep me moving forward.

great tire available in some hard to find sizes
Tires arrived very quickly. seem to be well made and priced well vs competition (pirelli dunlop etc) havent got to put many miles on yet to give wet traction, tread life etc comments
