Great bang for the buck all-arounder I put about 1k miles on these tires before I sold the bike they were on. Once scrubbed in they were great. Previously I had sticky tires such as q3's which would slide all over the road when the roads got wet, these were the exact opposite. Very nice and confidence inspiring in the wet. They also gripped surprisingly well in the dry. Were nice and progressive coming up on the traction limit and allowed one to push a decent/fun pace without worry. However if you are looking for a tire for canyon carving/dragging knee this obviously isn't it. It is, however a great all around tire that is affordable for a commuter/tourer who is putting a decent amount of miles on tires in varying conditions and may not need to spend twice as much for the just slightly better tire with the latest and greatest technologies.

A fantastic sport tourer tire My XB12XT eats rear tires... 4500 miles was the max from anything. Although it gives up a little grip, most noticeably in the rain, when compared to the Angel ST's... it's providing at least 7500 miles with some left before it'll hit the wear bars. At this price, I swap front and rear for less than the price of a single Pirelli. Highly recommend these. Ride like your brains are in your helmet in the rain and you'll never find fault.

good tire ive had a couple of tires, some more prestigious as well. I threw these puppies on my bike (after i saved a ton of bucks) and with everyday riding i cant even notice the difference. no regrets September 28, 2015
Excellent, Buy Again & Agian Great traction, good leaning would make definitely buy agian. Already 3k miles on these tires excellent tread left definitely feel comfortable driving my 07 CBR 1000RR on these August 17, 2015
Great tires for the money I put a set of these tires on my bmw 2014 r1200rt just before a 4000 mile trip to Montana. I'm very satisfied all around, I did a lot of mountain driving in and out of rain showers didn't have any problem. I'm not an aggressive rider but they seemed fine when I do get frisky with it. Can't tell about the life of the tires yet but they are wearing well so far. August 3, 2015
grip is great only have a few miles on the Shinko but the feel is firm steering became tighter. tracks well. less feel for the road than the diablo had. but i like it so far. July 6, 2015
amazing tires! The shinko 009 tires are the best. I bought the rear tire last season and I love it. These tires have the longest life for such a great price May 11, 2015
Bargain tire with premium performance. I ride a Suzuki Bandit 1200 every day. I'm pushing about 130 horsepower, and do about 20,000 miles a year, so I eat a lot of tires. I've tried all of the usual suspects in the premium category and I was using Pirelli Angel GT's last until I tried these. Big advantages to using the Shinko tire. The grip feels very similar to that of the Pirelli, but these have a flatter profile, so steering feels much easier to control. The other advantage is that as the tires get near the end of life, you don't feel dangerous and wooden. As the Pirellis would cup and get near the wear bars, handling would be erratic and diminish confidence. I finally just replaced my first Shinko front tire, which went 12,000 miles before I reached the side wear bars. The center still had tread to spare, and I probably could've squeezed another 500-1000 out of it if I hadn't been going on a trip. Far and away the most miles I've gotten out of any tire to date. The best I could hope for from a front tire previous to this was about 8k. I'm pretty hard on my tires. Will buy these until they stop making them, and considering a complete set costs as much as 1 rear Pirelli, it's really a no brainer. November 10, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Edgar C: affordable Nov 22, 2015
Dennis B: This tire is the same one that's on my Busa. Long wearing and comfortable. My bike is lowered however these tires allows it to handle the curves with comfort. Nov 6, 2015

Sanders W: I chose this tire from the Reviews & a friend who runs this tire on his BMW May 27, 2015
Vilis N: I ride an old (1997) VFR750. Switching from Bridgestone s20 tires which were excellent all around and gave great grip even in cold, wet conditions. s20 wore evenly and I got 5k miles out of them. I want to try a harder compound for lower price and longevity and to see if I care about having less grip. I don't corner hard enough to wear my tires out to the edge anyhow.
I'll write a review after I've used them for a while.

A S asked: I have a Kawasaki Ninja 1000 Sport Touring bike. It's 509 lbs. wet, I 2 up half the time and a lot of highway riding. My question is, with a heavy bike and riders, will these tires hold up and will I be able to get at least 12,000 miles out of them? Are these tires recommended for a heavy bike? Apr 26, 2015

Kenneth M: Can't speak specifically to the durability for a liter bike with a passenger on it, but I had these tires on my previous bike (Ninja 650r) AND on my wife's SV650 and was VERY pleased with them on both applications, both in terms of dry & wet weather grip and in terms of durability/longevity. They are still on the SV and were also still on the Ninja when I got rid of it. The Ninja 650r is well over 400 lbs. wet and was my daily commuter. If they made them in the right size for my new ride (Daytona 675), I would buy them in a heartbeat. As it is, I will be getting the closely related Shinko 005s. Again, none of our bikes were over 500 lbs., but based on my experience with them, I can't see them not being able to handle the job. Hope this helps! Apr 26, 2015
