I have these tires on my 1987 fzr1000 that i use as a track day bike. Let me tell you these tires stick. They heat up fast and get nice and gummy. The are great in the rain also. These tires give me good feedback. Shinko is the only tire i can get in a 170 for the rear so thats why i went with them cause my bikes rear rim is an 18inch. I have 3 track days on them and so far so good.

I've had a few sets of Shinko tires now, attracted by the low prices, and they work reasonably well as long as you are not trying to lean your bike over for cornering more than 45 degrees... as the tire lacks a round enough profile for decent cornering traction compared to "sport bike" or "super sport" tires... I've yet to see a Shinko that has a good round profile for sport bikes...
I installed these tires on my 2013 Suzuki DRZ400SM @3489 miles.
I now have 7109 miles and the rear needs to be replaced (due to hooliganism and burnouts)
the front tire is at 60% and looks great still.
best $166 I ever spent.
great road manners
great in rain/ wet conditions.
good off road
decent light mud traction.
I have done multiple off road trail rides on these tires with friends that were on dirt bikes and they could not believe how well I could stay in front and keep up with them on a stock supermoto in the woods.
I plan to buy another set to replace the current ones when they're finished. If you ride a supermoto and want a tire capable of everything this is it. cannot find a better tire for the price.
I needed a replacement for my 2004 ZX6R and I didn't want to just give my money away for tires that I could get cheaper and just as good. There are very few reviews for Shinko but I did my research and they sounded good enough and my mechanic assured me that they were good tires. He even had them on his GSX-R1000 and was going to continue to use them. With his vote I went ahead and bought them and they are great tires . Excellent grip wet or dry and they really seem to be wearing well. These will be my next set as well.
There have been no questions asked about the Shinko 006 Podium Front Tire.
