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.May 4, 2014
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.
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.Aug 25, 2013
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
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 luckAug 19, 2014
Kyle H asked:does the shinko700 have stiff enough sidewall to ride a flat out of trouble? I ride a lot alone. My D606's I can ride a flat out of the woods without the tire falling off the rim. I need a 50/50 tire I can spoon on and be able to get myself out of the woods with a flat tire to main road/ civilization without falling off the rim. (klr 650)Mar 3, 2015
