The Podium radial features a streamlined tread pattern that reduces rotating resistance while improving water drainage. A smooth shoulder profile ensures superior grip and exceptional stability at all lean angles.
Great Tires, especially for the price
Used these tires on a road trip around the continental United States this summer. Got about 10,000 miles out of the front, and replaced the rear after 5,000. I could have gotten a bit more out of the rear but I picked up a nail in New Mexico. These tires held peg dragging lean angles in the Tail of the Dragon in N.C. as well as the snake outside of L.A. with no issue. They also held up well in pouring midwest rain at above 80 mph. I talked to a guy at a gas station who couldn't believe I flew by him on the highway in the rain while he was hydroplaning. For the price you can not beat these tires.

A good bang for the buck.
The tires handle great , how long the tires last is to soon to tell. The shopping for the tires on your website was easy and the price of the tires was 20 to 30 % cheaper then anyone. So if I am looking for motorcycle gear I start at your web page first.

Inexpensive street tire
Replaced my old 3 plug + another new nail tire with this Shinko. No grip issues through the 600 pothole filled miles I put on it so far. I have no problems recommending this over more expensive tires.

Inexpensive, semi-sticky, and durable tires
I put my second set of Podiums on my Ninja 250. The first set lasted 8K miles before making it down to the wear bars. These aren't the stickiest, nor are they the most communicative tire.
I don't ask a lot of my 250 - mostly commuting and semi-spirited twisty riding. You're not going to break the rear loose on a 250 unless you're really trying.
The rear on mine never came close to breaking loose and I always felt confident in the wet and the dry. I haven't taken them to the track so I can't comment on the performance there.

A Great ride so far.....
Against what most people suggested I put this on my 2010 FXDB and its been a GREAT Ride.....some say the tire will not last long ....but then again neither did the Scorcher.....but this was less than half that price..........will see in the long run.

michael s asked:Looking for a little advice on this tire, or Shinko in general. I am a full-time college student and I work part time at my university, I use my bike for commuting only, I don't ride really aggressively since I'm a relatively new rider. I ride a 2006 636 in Arizona, so it hardly rains at all, so wet wether performance isn't that important, it's nice to have peace of mind if it does rain that one day out of the year that I ride though. I've heard really mixed reviews on this tire so I'm torn. Price really doesn't matter to me right now, I can afford those well-known brands, but as a student if I can save money and still get a safe product it's a done deal. Thoughts?Aug 20, 2014
dan s:Wet weather traction is ok at best. If your just commuting I would get a different tire as this wore out quick. One with more touring attributes. This is just a cheap tire in general (my thoughts about shrink as well). I've had great luck with Michelin. It's all I run now. I'm a college student as well up in minnesota and your better off just spending that little extra money. Pay once cry once.Aug 22, 2014
daniel S:Good tire. I will say it slipped out behind me a couple times and twisted the bike on me but I've got about 4000 miles on them now and really haven't had much of a problem lately. I live where it gets really hot and can rain as well. I'd recommend them but maybe do a nice burnout first. My buddy has the 009 ' s( I believe they are) but hasn't had one issue yet so either or. Good luck.Aug 24, 2014
Shane B:Any tire is going to be safe if you ride within the limits of the tire. The vast majority of street riders aren't going to out-ride most tires. If it rains on you, ride slower and more carefully, you aren't going to just instantly crash on them or anything. These are a good bargain if you don't want to spend the cash on a higher-tier tire.Aug 21, 2014
