Excellent tire!
Purchased a set of these for my '86 Goldwing in March and they've exceeded my expectations. As of this review, I'm 10K into these tires and have another 2-3K left on the rear. Ordering a new set for winter.

Mounted easily with tire machine & balanced using beads. Felt a slight vibration the first few miles then it went away. No problems since.

Running 41psi in front & rear (as recommended) gives good road feedback. Anything less the front gets mushy & the rear squirms.

Good traction in the wet (way better than the Honda "recommended" tires) and in the cold...and on gravel.

Very sticky on the sides so leaning the bike over thru turns is FUN!

Shinko Killing It Yet Again
From the get go this tire surprised the heck out of me. Although it has only been a few weeks I can tell this is going to be a fun ride. Tread, although aggressive looking, is unbelievably quiet. Handling like a dream, not like a new tire but like a dream, it literally feels like it is digging/clawing into the asphalt. Wet weather is nothing, fresh rain on the highway was no issue. Can't wait for to find out how the tread life is going to be.

EXCELLENT tire for the money...can't go wrong!
I purchased my Shinko 230 rear tire in January of this year for my '96 Honda Shadow 1100 American Classic (ACE) and have logged over 7000 highway and rural, mountain road miles on this tire. I have ridden in all types of weather conditions and temperatures, and I must say that I am EXTREMELY impressed and pleased with the performance, grip, handling, comfort, and tread life of this tire considering it cost well under $100. This brand was highly recommended by a friend, who is also my motorcycle mechanic and an avid biker. I have been running a Kenda Cruz on the front, and have been very pleased with that tire, but I am getting ready to replace both with a set of matching Shinko tires. Think I am going to try the 777's this time. Regardless, you can't beat Shinko's quality for the price.

Excellent tire value
After reading many reviews and opinions concerning these tires I decided to try a set. I had been running "major brand" tires that cost a LOT more and was dissatisfied with the overall performance vs cost. Well, the Shinkos took care of that! I have a 712 on the rear and a 230 on the front of an '07 Guzzi Cali Vintage and they are every bit as good as the more expensive tires...actually I like them better with regards to handling and traction. Wear is looking to be good as well, at least as good as the previous tires but a half the cost. In addition they ride very smooth...noticeably better in fact. I'm sold...Shinkos for me from now on!

This tire does better than the Dunlop 404 that I had on.
Good price on tires. Shipped fast. Rides and handles better than Dunlop. Will use again when time comes to replace.

Great for older sport-touring bikes
For my 1975 GL1000 Goldwing this is outright the best bang for the buck tire I have found. There are technically better tires out there like the BT45 Battlax (Which were my first new set on the bike), but for half the cost the Shink 230 offers 8/10ths of that tire, with the only real sacrifice being tread life.

Grip wise, I prefer the 230 over the BT45. My group of riding buddies is wide and varied between newer sport bikes, old classics like mine, cruisers, and even a couple of ADV bikes. When I end up with my more sporty friends on a twisty road, these tires give me plenty of confidence that allows me to keep up well through the corners. They also ride great on the highway for the cruiser rides.

Mileage. My Goldwing weighs in wet at 587lbs (yes I got bored and scaled it one day). So it's on the lighter end of the "heavy" spectrum. I managed to get about 7500 miles on the rear tire before it finally needed replacing (not bald and showing cords) with the front tire at roughly half tread. To me, this is a more than acceptable tread life for a motorcycle tire, especially considering how well they grip. I will only ever buy these for my Goldwing as long as they are offered. Again, there are technically better tires, but I have yet to have a confidence or quality issue with these tires, and they give me everything I want.

Good price, but maybe not the best choice for bigger bikes
I had Metzeler ME880 on a 2000 Suzuki Intruder 1500, after about 10k on them, they were pretty whipped and tried Shinko. Reviews were good overall and couldn't beat the price. Had them on now for only a few hundred miles. The front wheel tends to wander and "fall off" side to side. Not bad at higher speed, but slow handling is a constant steering correction. Almost feels like the bike wants to fall off the contact patch of the tire, like steering and Ice Skate. Air pressure is at 40 psi and checked every ride. I realize that there is a break in, and the older tires were well worn, but I'm really not feeling confident with the feel of these. Didn't have that break in with Metzelers. May be swapping them out soon. No issues with Revzilla or shipping. Great price and had them in 2 days.

Great tire so far
This is the first front Shinko that I've used and I'm very pleased. Put it on a Super Tenere. Mounting was very easy, bead seated perfectly and tire has lost ZERO air so far. From a couple thousand miles of use so far, things look great and traction has been exceptional. I'll probably put a rear Shinko on this bike once my current rear wears out.

Quite satisfied with this product
Cannot comment on tire wear or wet traction at this time. Mounted easily and was almost in perfect balance. Hangs onto the road quite well in dry conditions. Have not ridden it wet yet and have not put enough miles on to comment on tire wear.

I picked this company because they seem to be more interested in the rider and rider needs than others. Also their prices were much better and with free shipping that was one of the big things that finalized the sale.

I liked the Shinko 712's and wondered if these would work better. Unfortunately they do not. They have squared off faster and have less grip. Will go back to the 712's next time.

William D on Jun 29, 2015
I liked the price and the free shipping. It did not hurt that the V speed rating was certainly about twice what I would be riding. But if I needed to go fast that option would not be limited by the tires. Up to 149 mph, Wow! I hope this is the beginning of a long and trusted relationship. Everyone enjoy the ride.

what is the cheapest best rate tube tire for Harley dyna motorcycle?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I run the Shinko 230 on my Kawasaki Vulcan and really am pleased with it. It rides and handles better than the Dunlop tire did. I suggested a friend of mine try it on his Harley Heritage and he did. He rides double most of the time and so far has about 5000 miles on it. He will put on another Shinko when this one wears out.
Can the Tour Master tire be plugged after removing a small nail?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While I have not had to plug a hole yet, I know nothing about this tire that would make it any different in that regard, just follow accepted hole plugging practices.
Is this a tubeless tire?
pret d on Jun 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is a tubeless tire. It is not a radial tire though. I have about 3000 miles on mine. They're mounted on a 1983 Honda Magna. It's hard to find radials in these sizes.
Decent performance, very affordable.
I need a replacement for the original equipment style Dunlops that are on the 1981 Honda CM400 I just bought and Shinko was recommended by a local bike shop as a good first tire. I am 58 and have not ridden in over 30 years and I want to start off with something inexpensive. I plan on doing occasional recreational rides only consisting of no more than 10 miles at a time and speeds not above 45MPH for my first year. After that I will probably move up to a larger bike so I don't want to invest a lot into high end tires from the start. Anyone have any input on these tires?
Tom K on Sep 24, 2014

I put a Shinko on my '98 Valkyrie. It balanced up perfectly and has proven to be a good tire for me - rides & handles just fine. Given the weight of your 400, a Shinko should last you into ur sunset years should you choose to stay with the bike!
are they tube type ?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have tubes in my tires. For me these tires are awesome. After the manufacturing oil wore off: Great performance. I carry 40 pounds of air pressure in the front and the rear tires. I am a novice rider and I do not push myself or my v star 650. I hope this will help. Revilla did a very good job getting the tires to my mechanic. Very very quick.
If I'm removing my back tire and it's a 67h can i replace it with a 73v? Tire sizes are the same 130/90-16.
A shopper on Feb 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. I did it on my 83 XJ900 SEKA. The difference between the 67h and the 73v is the speed rating.
