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
Good tire option... I was looking for dual sport tires for my 09 KLX 250SF and these tires came up in many searches, so I gave them a shot. Tread life has been good and grip both in the dirt and on the pavement is good as well. For the price, I couldn't beat these tires. September 30, 2013
Great tire at a great price! I bought this front tire to replace the Bridgestone that came with the bike, a 2008 Honda CRF 230l. If anything, it is better than the original with better road holding and no discernable road noise - the Bridgestone was very noisy. I recommend this product but I must add that I only drive the bike on tarmac. September 1, 2013

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
