I lean toward the off-pavement riding . Good tread for dirt....... I only wish they made a tire this size " 150/70 " with full blown knobby's , 40\60

Was sceptical about the tire on tarmac but it has never given me any trouble cornering you can lock up the tire under heavy breaking but I can deal with that. I will buy this tire again.
My buddy has been using these on his modified semi off road Versys and he loves them. They are low in price and last as long as other expensive brands. Half the price of the 'Cont' that I replaced it with. Great for my DR on and off road.
Best tires for the money very happy with purchase
Handles rough trails and is smooth and not scary on road getting there.
I've had these on my KLR for a couple weeks and I'm thoroughly impressed! On the road they roll through the turns excellently, on the gravel logging roads they hold the line well and the front end does not drift around as if it's on marbles...
For the price point these tires can't be matched!
Ride Shinko's on my dirtbikes for years. Love the value and the grippy rubber they use. Decided to try a set on my BMW GSA1200. So far, so good. They hook up onthe dirt road I live on and really good on the pavement too. Not a lot of miles yet but the initial ride was very good!
I have purchased 3 sets of these so far. All of them have lasted between 5500-7000 miles. I ride a mix of street and offroad (90% street and 10% offroad). They are a better overall tire than the stock tires in my 2017 Africa Twin. Also, cant beat the price.
I knew this tire would be a huge upgrade offroad over the stock tires on my Africa twin. I was concern about how they would handle on the street because I use this bike as a daily commuter. After 500 miles on and offroad I am very happy. The offroad performance is night and day better and the street performance is nearly as good. I ride in rain all the time and have had no issues with traction. In the dry you can push these tires pretty hard without any scary moments. I am not sure about durability yet but at the price I am not too concerned. They mount easily also.

Question:Q: 2015 Husqvarna FE 350S (F) 90/90/21 - (R) 150/70/18 would this be a adequate fitting ?????Question asked 2 months 25 days ago
Question answered by robertUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 2 months 25 days agoAnswer: A: The 90/90-21 will work great for the front but the rear is larger then the oem spec for the bike. To insure fitment you will need to measure the swing arm and distance from the chain to insure the larger ration tire will fit on your bike.

Question:Q: I'm thinking i'd like to try a 140/80-17 on my 2007 klr 650. I've already removed the chain guard that gets damaged with the stock tire size of 130/80-17. 2 questions- has anyone there tried this? also, what is the ACTUAL width of the 140 at widest pointQuestion asked 1 year 1 month ago
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 1Question answered 1 year 1 month agoAnswer: A: The stock tires sizes on the 2007 KLR650 are 90/90-21 front and 130/80-17 rear. These are the sizes which Kawasaki tested and determined to be best for most riders, in most conditions.
The Shinko E805 Big Block Rear Tire 140/80-17 will fit your stock rim. This 10mm wider than the 130mm wide original. The additional 10mm would be split as 5mm more on each side, so it will be 5mm closer to the swingarm and chain. You must measure the clearance on your bike to determine if there is space for the extra 5mm on each side, and assure that the tire would not touch the chain, which would allow chain lube to contaminate the tire.
The 140/80-17 is also 4mm taller than the 130/80-17.
