excellent tires since putting these on i feel like I'm riding a different bike. whether highway or forest service road these tires are very predictable. i can't say anything about wet traction or tread life yet but for the price what i can say is "wow!". June 27, 2014
Great value Well manured on and off road. Not much grip on mud, but I expected that. Haven't had them for long enough to determine tread life. April 22, 2014
Can't beat it for price. Smooth on road, haven't tried off road yet but have D606 knobbies I swap for my couple big trips a year. Wouldn't try to lean too far on road and front tire seems 30% off road, tho haven't tried it on dirt. I would buy again for a local riding tire (chicago area). April 14, 2014
The ultimate bang for the buck DS tire Like so many others, I bought these as a cheap burn through tire only to find myself loving every mile! Traction on pavement is good, even in the rain I've had no issues. It gets a little marbely a highway speeds, but every DS tire I've ever ran does that and these do it less than most. Off road I've had them in everything from sand to mud with acceptable results, especially considering the price and modest knobbies. At 70% pavement and 30% off road the wear is exceptional. I have 4,200 on my current set and they are no where near time to replace. March 19, 2014
Bought these as cheap throw-aways but happily surprised! Bought these for a 2000 mile mixed road/dirt trip on a Suzuki DR650 because I didn't want to burn up the Dunlop 606/ Perelli MT-21 combo with a lot of life left on them. Swapped these on thinking for the price if they just lasted for the trip it was a good deal. Turns out they wear great, provide decent traction on the dirt and good reliable traction on the paved twisties. My buddy is using the Heidenau's ($$$) and getting comparable wear on a XR650L. Not ready to take these to Alaska next year but they sure impressed me for the price. November 18, 2013
Can't complain at this price. Have put about 700 miles of various terrain. Haven't found an area where this tire disappoints (except maybe heavily grooved concrete, but what aggressive tire excels here, anyways). Give wear I am seeming I would expect about 3k miles out of it which is fine as that is what I got out a pair of Metzler Sahara II at almost $100 more. In a nut shell; a great compromise tire.

Shinko 244 on rear My first Shinko 244 rear tire lasted 8,400 miles on my KLR 650. This mileage was acheived on 30% gravel, 60% pavement and 10% off road. This was 2600 miles longer than the OEM Dunlop rear tire. The Shinko 244s are a good buy and give excellent service and traction on the KLR 650. November 7, 2013
Seem to be a good buy I bought these tires about a month ago. At first they were really sketchy on the pavement. They had alot of shimmy at around 60+ mph. As they wear in the ride on pavement gets alot better. They do really well in the grass and dirt. Not too good in gravel, but what tire is....They sure beat street tires if you want to be more versatile. I put them on a 2009 klx 250 sf. The stock tubes worked fine, its hard to find a on-off road tire for the stock 17" rims. They are cheap, and they look sweet. I haven't had any problems since i got them. I ordered them on a thurs. at @2 and they showed up the next day. Really happy with revzilla. October 7, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
bill k: when I first heard of these tires I was skeptical because of the low price. but all the research told me otherwise so I decided to give them a shot. all I can say is "OUTSTANDING"! almost three thousand on these tires with a 50/50 mix of paved and dirt including some gnarly forest service roads and I still have lots of tread left. plus the traction on dirt roads is great. I don't know why I would spend more money on other tires. Sep 3, 2014
Heather T: excellent reviews here and on multiple moto message boards. Low price is an extra bonus! Sep 1, 2014
sam w: I read hours of reviews online and had other brand tires to compare from riding experience. I chose these because out of all the reviews they had the highest tread life along with exceptional performance on and off road for the best price. I will give a thorough review once i get the tires and I am able to put some miles on them with my 2008 klr 650 :) Aug 9, 2014
nathan w: price and value Jul 12, 2014

Kyle K: I chose this tire because, my last one has 5k miles give or take on 08 KLR650. Feb 25, 2014

Aaron S: Great price Jan 3, 2014
STORM M: Did a lot of research on the best tire for my bike and riding style and this seemed to be the best option at a reasonable price. Replacing my stock rear tire on a KLR 650 after about 4500 miles, mostly street riding, occassinal dirt. Heard Revzilla also has pretty fast shipping. Nov 12, 2013
David K: been running these for a few sets now...absolutely the best 50/50 tire for my KLR (cheap too! ) Oct 7, 2013
James L: Forum reviews and Your awesome price. I bought both front and rear tires for $106.00. If they wear fast, I can buy two more sets for the price of one set of a comparable brand. Sep 16, 2013
A shopper asked: I was interested in the Shinko 244 Dual Sport Tires for my Triumph Scrambler. My current tire sizes are 130/80-17 rear and 100/90-19 front. For the rear, would it be 4.60-17 and 2.75-19 for the front? I assume the second number is the wheel size. The conversion chart I found says 4.00/4.50-17 rear and 3.25/3.5-19 front. The front seems rather narrow but it's the only 19" tire I see listed. Thanks! May 22, 2014

Daniel K: Yes, you need tubes for these dual purpose tires. Depending on how much off road you are planning to do you can decide of how heavy duty and thick a tube you want to get. These are great on the street...btw Dec 26, 2013
