Great commute tires I bought this to use with my 2013 CRF250L, I'm going to be putting supermoto 17" wheels on it later on, but for now I needed a more street oriented tire to fit on the stock 21" and 18" rims. This tires fit the bill perfectly, cheap, wear like iron and have great grip on tarmac and off road on fire roads kind of dirt. Dont expect to handle any real offroad, but for gravel, packed dirt sort of terrain its perfect and exactly what I needed. April 14, 2014
Great tire! I have these on my '07 Triumph T100, and love them. All around great tire for any riding surface. They look good too! I have about 1,000mi on them so far, and they show little to no wear, so I'm expecting good tred life out of them as well, but I don't feel that's enough miles to rate them yet for it. They will feel a little squirmy for the 1st 50-100mi. but once they are scrubbed in, that all goes away and they feel terrific after that. March 25, 2014
Good tire for price Running a rear shinko on a vstrom. Decent off road traction, ok wet tire. If you burn through tires, why not get a cheap one for fun! March 24, 2014
Great tire for the price. If your riding style and your ego demands much more expensive tires than you should buy something else. If you want tires that are very inexpensive but you can feel confident riding on, the Shinkos are a great choice. I have them on the F800 gs and the wife's f650gs. Mostly forest roads and some more technical dirt and she LOVES them. March 10, 2014
this tire is fine product This tire was perfect for my BMW GS 1200 It was easy to mount and handles the road great February 24, 2014
Nice tires for a great price! Read a lot of reviews for these tires and decided to give them a go. Glad I did because they look great, feel great and met all my expectations for an awesome price. I have these on a Triumph Tiger 800XC. Not bad when you can buy the pair for less than the cost of most others rear. They are nice and aggressive looking, have handled speeds over 100 smoothly and feel good in the dirt. They are a little slick the first 100 miles or so, but most new tires are. I can't speak of the life, but after reading reviews they should hold up for at least 6-7k, and at this price no biggie if they go a little less. I will buy again when the time comes!!! February 17, 2014
Solid tire! This is a solid, dependable tire at a good cost. Tread-life is average, but grip and traction are quite good. You could pay twice as much for a different tire but probably not get twice the life. I ride year round in everything but ice and have never lacked confidence --even did the Dragon in the rain (see photo!). The tire does well on road and off, but don't expect the performance of a knobby from this in the mud. Handles dirt and gravel pretty well. I don't see myself switching from this tire any time soon. February 7, 2014
a good dual sport tire for the r12gs at half the price and I get the same miles on the rear as the major brands, about 5-6k! performance for me is the same too. January 20, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
BRIAN B: These tires come "highly" recommended for the big ADV style bikes, best bang for the buck for their capabilities and overall longevity. I have a V-Strom 1000 and I have yet to try these, have friends who run them and just love them. Apr 9, 2014
donald m: I have had great luck with these tires on my bmw 1200 gs. They are inexpensive comparatively and perform great. My front tire has done 12,500 miles and still had tread but started to cup! These are my 4th pair and will continue to purchase. Revzilla ships awesome and with Rvzilla buck save even more. Mar 26, 2014
T H: For the budget rider, you cannot beat the value here. I read tons of reviews and purchased the 705 rear for my GSA. Though a little dicey on wet asphalt, its a great all around tire. Mar 21, 2014
Carlos D: Good reviews and i needed a new tire for an up coming cross country trip Mar 18, 2014
Tyler H: needed them Mar 10, 2014
M Y: i thought this would be the best bet for a good set of tires... and i was correct. Mar 10, 2014
Nikolai M: "I wanted a dual sport tire for my '79 CB750 brat/tracker. There are very few dual sports that come in both 140/18 (rear) and 110/19 (front) so I decided to mix and match brands. The Shinko 705 had good reviews, they have the right beefy look for my bike, and they were a great price." Mar 7, 2014
Mark S: Great price. and have used Shinko tires before. they are a good deal! Feb 12, 2014
Jason C: Positive reviews and price Jan 31, 2014
Carlos C: ok Jan 28, 2014
chris c: great DS tire Jan 24, 2014
Gary L: This will be my 2nd Shinko rear tire. So far I have been pleased with the first ones (bought front and rear), except that they are not going to get the miles I got out of Tourances (about 1/2 or a little better on the first rear), but at 1/3 the price, I'll take it. I am hoping that the reason for less mileage is that it is a softer tire with better traction, I don't know, but they do seem to grip pretty good. If I had the money, I'd stick to Tourance, but they are out of the budget right now Jan 22, 2014
Logan H: I've ridden roughly 35,000 miles on this model of tire and been very happy with it's performance compared to it's price. Jan 14, 2014
Jason H: Testing out different tires for on and off-road applications on my KLR650. Determining which tires offer the best bang for the buck, and which last the best with two up riding in the mix also. Jan 13, 2014
zachary w: Read reviews sounds good will c .free shipping is nice too. Dec 17, 2013
George C: Mileage and comfort on the pavement. These tires have good recommendation for 80/20 pavement/dirt use on the DRZ 400 via ADVRider Dec 3, 2013
Nick M: There were many good reviews on these tires and the price is great. Dec 2, 2013
DAGOBERTO T: Price and reviews. Nov 27, 2013
Roger S: Good tires at a reasonable price. I did have a front delaminate and a rear have some tread separation but they are cheap and neither defect resulted in me being stranded. I have over 10K on my current front with very little signs of wear. Nov 19, 2013
Mike F: Inexpensive tires for Vstrom 650 with decent block pattern, The front 705 skates a lot in gravel so replaced with TKC80 which is awesome. The rear 705 is pretty good in the dirt, have about 6k on it now, still good tread but replacing it soon with a much knobbier Karoo 2 for the dirt. Nov 14, 2013
Albert W: good reviews and bang for the buck! Nov 14, 2013

A shopper asked: is the 150/70/17 tl bias ply or radial ? Aug 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Tod C P: This tire is a radial.
Only have a few hundred miles so far. I was surprised to find I like them more than my Michelin Annakee II on the road. Have not been off road yet. They handle well and I found they improved the turn in on my 04 GSA; an already great handling bike. Very pleased so far.

Eugenio C: The rear tire 150/70/17 is radial and a descent tire for the price. I had a pair on my R1200GS. The front tires have both radial and not. On a big heavy bike I would not use a non radial. Ultimately, I would not recommend these tires. I love my Heidenaus. Aug 13, 2013

A s: I believe it's radial. I don't think they make this tire in a 150 as bias ply anymore, after they had all the problems initially. I bought a couple for my GS in 2011 and then June 2012, and they were radial. Aug 13, 2013

Wayne G: Radial. Have had the tire mounted for about 1500 miles. So far an excellent tire in the hard pack on the pavement and in the rain. Aug 14, 2013

Kurt N: The one I ordered and received was a radial. Do not attempt to use this tire on a GSA, the bike is too heavy and it came apart. Aug 13, 2013

Adrian M: The newer 705's have a "R" after the size numbers, meaning they are radial.

A shopper asked: I have a 2010 Honda NT700V (Deauville), with which I commute to work via street and freeway, as well as adventure touring/camping. The NT700V is spec'd with BattleAx 120/70ZR17 M/C 58W front and 150/70ZR 17 M/C 69W rear, Looking for longer life and lower cost, encountered SHinko. The Verge front looks like an ideal replacement. Per RevZilla, the only rear would be the 705, which is 150/70R17 TL 69H. Is the difference between the spec'd size and the 705's size going to be a problem? I have 8000 miles on bike with original tires, which must be replaced rather quickly. The BattleAx have been great to ride, but seems like poor life, and more expensive. Feb 7, 2014

Galen E: Both tires are the same size: 150/70R17. The other letters in the tire codes are load (both the same 69) and speed ratings (both faster than the 700's top speed).

I've run the Shinko 705 radials for 3 sets now and am very happy with them.

Best regards,
Feb 18, 2014

Wayne G: I have used the Shinko 705 on the front of my BMW R1200GS for about 5000 miles. I think the tire is wearing very well. It handles well in all weather and light off road. When the Torrance on the rear wears out, I will replace it with a Shinko. Cannot beat the price. Feb 18, 2014

A shopper asked: I am taking a 2007 BMW R1200R to D2D in Alaska next month and need a semi dual sport tire on it , something slightly more gravel worthy than street rubber. I have seen the Pirelli Scorpion Trail fits this model but they are ZR rated which means longevity may not be adaquate for an 8K mile run. A 4.5-5.5 K mile tire is probably not going to cut it. In theory I could install further north and replace just after reentering the states and squeak by with 6500 mile range. Do you have any alternatives in the 180/55 17, and 120/7017 sizes required for this bike? I'd love to have anakees, or tourances like I'll be riding on my GS, but dont see this size listed for my wife's R1200R. May 19, 2012

Keepiton: Isn't the Heidenau k-60 available in that size? I believe it is the recommended tire of the BMW ADV schools, and I'm hearing well over 10,000 miles are common for the rear! Absolutely love it on my WeeStrom Also the ceramic balancing beads will give you dynamic balance through out your tour. May 29, 2012
