equal to TCK80 on road, seems to clear mud better
Application: Shinko 805, rear tire, R1200GS Adventure. Picked up this tire to replace a TCK80 rear. This tire has more endurance/stamina with less price, an important consideration for me as I put about 24-30k miles a year on my bike. But I'm not a pure highway only kinda motorcyclist, why would you put a 80/20 tire on for that? I also goof off as my skills allow off-road (think fire roads, light mud), and I feel that the 805 clears mud better than the TKC80. However, I am a significantly better road rider (sumo style roads, real mountain stuff that is only available in the West), and this is where I was really interested comparing vs the TCK80, and I am comfortable saying that the 805 exceeded my expectations re: cornering. I have more chicken strip left for the same roads on the 805 vs the TCK80, which seems to indicate a difference in tire profile and possibly even more lean angle available. I know my corner entry, steady state, and exit speeds so I was a bit surprised (in a good way). I can't definitively tell you that one tire or the other has more ultimate grip, just that I am able to achieve the same speeds through turns.

Will update if I get a front 805 on.

IMO, this is a no brainer if you are cross shopping the TCK80 and the Shinko 805 for the rear. Get the 805.

Great tire for the price
Just got back from a week in Baja with Raw Hyde Adventures. Over 2,000 hard miles on this tire. The on road traction is acceptable for a knobby, but off road I think this tire performs very well. It hooked up well in loose rocks, sand and even over very hard sharp terrain with a fully loaded BMW R1200GS Adv. On one section of rode, with other tires makes, the group experienced a total of 8 punctures. No issues with the Shinko!

Rode back to Las Vegas at a very fast pace with almost 600 miles of pavement and the tire still looks to be about 50%. I've had other knobbies that would be long wasted after this type of abuse. For the money it would be hard to beat this tire.

Great tire for 50/50 with few drawbacks
I'm running these tires on my Super Tenere 1200. The stock Battle Wings were no doubt, 100% road tires. I switched them out for Avon Distanzias. The Avons were better in loose gravel but lacked lateral traction in the mud.
Now, I am coming off of a long stint in the sport bike world. My last bike was a CBR 1000RR. Having said that, I like to get into the twisty's and I really push the Tenere hard over on asphalt. I was worried about getting a knobby and giving up road handling. But then again, I found myself off roading more and more and really needed a decent mud/loose terrain tire.
I went with the Shinko and had them balanced with Dyna Beads. Just a warning, I have ridden on new tires before and know what to expect until they have been scuffed, however, I found the Shinkos down right scary right out of the shop. I'll describe them as almost greasy feeling. I put about 10, sketchy miles on them, gradually breaking them in. Then I took them off road and wow! The traction control of the Tenere didn't kick in at all on trails that I had slowed to a crawl the week before with the Avons.
Once they were sufficiently broken in, I find that they handle as well as the Avons, despite their "Paddle Wheel" design.
I gave them average for wear life as I have only put a few hundred miles on them at this point but, at the price, I don't mind slightly less wear life.

Great tire at a good price
This is the second set of Shinko 804/805 tires I've used. The first set lasted about 7000 miles and still had some tread life left. On the highway they are predictable and have good grip, even on wet pavement. I have no concerns cornering them pretty good. Off road they work great. The deep tread hooks up well in the mud and loose dirt/gravel. They handle decent in the sand too. I also never had a puncture flat. I am getting ready to ride the UTBDR and have no doubt that these tires will work perfectly.

Great tires even at a higher price!
I ride an F800GS and bought a set of Big Blocks after having ridden through 2 sets of TKC 80s (front and rear), and one Heidenau K 60 (rear only). The Big Blocks rumbled at first but after about 500 miles they became much smoother. They wear very well. Over 1K miles and minimal wear. The rear is not as good as the TKC 80s off-road but it is very close...more so than the Heidenau. I think you would only notice if you were riding hard and pushing the bike's off-road capability. The Big Block front is wearing well, tracks better on road than the TKC 80, and performs very close to the TKC front when off-road. They perform well in wet weather. Roll into turns well. I did not like the Heidenau off-road nor did I like how it squared off after 2K miles. The TKCs wear very fast...not a big deal if you are truly doing most of your riding off-road. I did not like how the TKC front cupped and it would track all over the highway if there were grooves. So far I am very satisfied with the Big Blocks. Great price, great wear, very good off-road. My new go to tire.

No dissappointment here!
This is my second set. The first was changed out at about 4500 miles, with some road, and mild dirt miles left on them. I changed them out for another set for my 3500 + mile adventure to Colorado.

They never let me, or the behemoth Tiger Explorer XC down.
Rider error and fatigue laid the "TEX" down a few times on some rough trails out in Colorado, NOT the Shinko's... they did their job, as one could expect, given the task.

Shinko 804/805 - Amazing - R1200GSA
I've tried a lot of tires and rarely run the same ones twice. With so many choices, i'm always looking for better. These are amazing and great quality. I was pretty nervous about ordering Shinko because I've always gone with "name" brands. I am on my 2nd set now with a 3rd one being ordered today. Great wet and dry traction;as long as you remember it's not a pure street tire. I can get about 7500-8000 miles from the tire and that's running it to 2mm vs all the way down. Even at prolonged high speed highway use, they don't seem to wear out. I love these tires and the price makes them that much better

Awesome tire for the money!
I installed one of these on the rear of my 800GS for a trip to Arizona. I had to ride a lot of highway miles to get to the dirt sections, and this tire was amazing! It handled everything I could throw at it. DEEP sand, loose rock, VERY deep mud, snow, and miles of twisty asphalt (a lot of it in heavy rain). Very good traction in all conditions. Total miles for the trip was around 2000, and it still has at least that left on it. I have run TKC80's most of the time and wanted to give this tire a shot. I was very impressed and will definitely buy another one. Very comparable to the TKC, but way cheaper, and it looks like it will last longer also. You won't be disappointed with this tire!

2016 Suzuki DR650S
I had a set of the Shinko Big Blocks mounted up on my Suzuki DR650S. I put a 130-80 on the rear (larger than stock 120-90) and it fit perfectly fine; not even close to a fitment issue. I've been running TKC80s and am finding the Shinkos to be comparable in performance on and off road. I have a lot of sand and mud when I get off the paved roads here in Florida. On the pavement they're a little more stable than the Conti's that had a tendency to wobble a little. I've only been getting 3K miles and less with the Contis so I'm hoping for some longer life out of these Shinkos. Reviews seem to indicate that they wear much longer, but I'm just into them a few hundred at the moment. I do like them quite a bit though so far.

The mitas E07 front tire is not a true 50/50 tire. Shinko 804 is much more aggressive off-road and so far has been great on-road as well. I'll keep the Mitas E07 rear. It is a fantastic tire.

Steve R on Apr 26, 2017
Decided to try these on a whim. Have been running them for about a thousand miles so far. Primary usage has been on smoothly graded fire roads in the ANF. Since it is spring, there has been a fair amount of wet and slippery mud. These tires are definitely an improvement over the 705's I normally run for these conditions. On dry pavement they are marginally noisier but certainly tolerable. Cornering traction on dry pavement does not seem to be compromised much. Wear is negligible so far.
price point and quality, used this brand previously.

The heidenau k60 that I purchased, and installed didn't stand up as well as was reported. So, these came with some fairly good reviews and on top of that, the pair (front and rear) of shinko's cost the same as just the rear heidi. So I'll see how the mileage stacks up.

To take on trails in Colorado, and tour Yellow Stone National park. I'm still on these tires that are about 4-5k miles on light use (rear tire only) in commuting, and trail riding while carrying less than 20-35 lbs on a v strom 650. My friend who rides the 800 xcx gets about 3-4k. My experience with Shinko's is that it tends to slide out on corners in deep gravel, but the blocks on the sides helps bring the bike upright quickly. I would recommend this for mid-range bikes

What is the tread depth on the rear tire? (TKC80 or Kenda Big Block)
A shopper on Feb 18, 2016
Does this include both front and rear tires? It is a little confusing, as title is for both but sizing only for the rear. Thanks.
A shopper on May 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 804 is the front tire and 805 is the rear tire.
The 804/805 front and rear tires sizes that I'd like to use show the front being a tube type (TT) and the rear size being tubeless (TL). Would it be ok to run a TT tire up front with a TL tire mounted onto the rear wheel?
sandy e on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you have tubed wheels it shouldn't be a problem to run either a tube tire or tubeless tire. I have run both on my DR650 no problem.
is the 150/70/17 rear a bias or radial? How do you tell? Ihave a radial Karoo in the front and am told that you can't put a bias ply on the rear with a radial in front. How do you know from the tire spec/numbers e.g., what does Q mean?
Matt C on Nov 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: "Q" is speed rating ...99mph max speed. I have that rear, it is 150/70B17. The B is for Bias ply. A radial would be 150/70R17, R for radial. The Revzilla size listing for this tire doesn't specify. so it's hard to know just buy using this website. I sometimes also reference manufacturer websites to confirm / clarify specs.
I see good reviews regarding using this tire on Suzuki DR-650, which uses inner tubes. However Shinko E-805 &E-804 are Tubeless Tires !! So, is it OK to use these tubeless tires with inner tubes on my 2008 Suzuki DR-650?
paul r on Jun 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is no issue with running tubes in a "tubeless" tire. I run them on a Tiger 800XCX, a bike that will generate more pounding and heat than the mighty DR. Check the inside of the tire for a small metallic tag and remove it, a few have had issues with it chafing the tube in a short time.

I've had good luck with these for the price, getting nearly 5k miles from the rear on a 100hp bike. They can be slick when still cold and especially when cold on wet surfaces, but once warm they are confidence inspiring, a very rare trait for a big-block tire.

There is a good thread on this tire on advrider .
At what interval does Shinko recommend replacement of the tires? 3000, 6000 or more?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi,

I have the 805 mounted on a Tiger 800XC. For the price, I am very happy with this tire. I've done a lot of offroad with it and it has stood up remarkably well for being on a 100HP, 500lb bike with a stupid person twisting the throttle. Traction offroad is a great improvement over the other 20/80 tires such as the 705 or Tourance.

That said, on a bike this size, you'll be lucky to get 3000 miles out of this tire onroad. It rides and corners well ONCE WARMED UP. Cold, on the 100hp bike, it is slick and will break free if you are not gentle.

Would I buy it again? Yes, but only to have when I'm planning on doing more aggressive offroad rides. For that purpose, you can't beat this price.

If you want an aggressive, high mileage, rear, you're going to have to fork out some cash and spring for the Mitas E07 or Heidenau. Both are going to run you nearly 200.00, but you'll get upwards of 10,000 miles out of them.
want to make sure these are tubeless tires. I have a BMW F800 GS 2016?
Rod M on Apr 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You need to look at the designation of the tires, as different sizes have different designators. TT = Tube Type, TL = Tubeless.
How fast can I drive on these?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: not sure why you want to go fast on a knobby, i've cruised at 75-80 mph down interstate for 100 miles,

BEST ANSWER: My 1200 GSAW has the same tire specs as your 1190. I installed the 110/80/19 Shinko 804 front and 150/70/17 Shinko 805 and they work well. I'm very impressed. I'm 1000 miles into my first set and have ordered another set just to have them sitting ready.
