    So far so good...

    0 5/5 dukey (Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I tried this tire based on some chatter I saw about how good it was for grip with decent treadlife. I am using it on a heavy bike, so it may not last as long as if it were on a light sportbike but it mounted up well and didn't need but 1/2 ounce to balance it. It rides smooth, but does seem louder than the Michelin PR2 it replaces.Finally, Smith Family Powersports shipped very quickly. The tire was on my doorstep in just a couple of days. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 4, 2013

    Sport Touring

    0 5/5 Chris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This is an excellent tire. Very smooth riding and added to the comfort of my bike. This has gone on the back of a ZX -11 sport touring motorcycle. I am very pleased with this purchase. Corner roll in is much smoother and controlled.

    Not bad... as a MC tire goes... nothing spectacular... just not bad...

    0 3/5 Bubba_in_TX - See all my reviews This review is from: Shinko 230 Tour Master Front 130/90-16 Motorcycle Tire I have been using Shinko Tourmaster tires for a few years now. I have them on 2 Yamaha 100 SIlverado's, a Yamaha 650 Custom, two yamaha mopeds, a 400cc Yamaha Scooter (Majesty) and a 2011 Kawasaki 1700 Voyager. Depending on the bike and the weight of it is how your mileage will go. They dont last long on the 400cc Scooter.... but they are only like 30 bucks each.I can get about 12k on the Yamaha street bikes but only 7k on the 1700 Voyager. But for the price the Shinko is the best buy for your money as other MC tires cost almost 200 bucks now. And since it is the front... easy to change. (I have my own tire changer and balancer)So I can live with a short front tire life and put on a new one every 3 months. I buy 3 at a time. The rear tire on my Voyager is a car tire and I will get around 28-30k out of it for the 100 bucks that cost.Buy the way, it is cheaper in here than on ebay... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2014

    Forget the claw hammer and crow bar, get me some TIRE SPOONS MAN!!

    0 5/5 Johnny Exx (North Carolina) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Motion Pro 08-005 11" Tire Iron - Pair (Automotive) These tools are excellent for doing what they're intended to do: maneuver tires onto and off of their wheels/rims. I am using these on my lawn equipment that needed tire work. I've used everything in the past from crow bars, hammers, screwdrivers, table knives, and my own bones to pull tires over the rim... but using these Tire Irons makes the job a breeze. I agree with another reviewer that having at least 3 would be golden. But two of these are a lot better than making your wife mad because you've used all the silverware to rim your tires. I'm ordering another set. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 27, 2014

    Greatest tire ever!

    I have a complete set of these to replace my bald front tire and squared, ancient rear tire on my 2007 Kawasaki ZZR600. I can't review them as a pair, so each product page will get the same review. You should always replace tires as a matched set anyway. Amazon shipped these INCREDIBLY quickly, all the way out to Maui within just a few days after clicking "confirm". It was by far the fastest shipment I've ever received, all at no extra cost thanks to Amazon Prime!The tires themselves arrived bundled together with straps and I was initially alarmed at the exposure they faced, but an extremely careful inspection yielded no evidence of damage or flaws caused by either shipping or manufacturing. The sidewalls are extremely tough, yet supple enough to permit mounting without resorting to anything extreme. They went on the bike without any surprises, and a quick check for static balance showed no sticky weights were required - spot-on!The tread design is... 5/5 h7886 (Maui, HI) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 Dave (Michigan) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Shinko 712 Rear Tire - 130/90H-16/-- I have used this Brand and model tire before, this will be my third tire for my third Interstate motorcycle. I have tried other brands (Bridgestone, Dunlop) and they seem to last just as long if not longer then the more expensive brands. I ride hard and fast from state to state and have used this tire in rain and sleet, it handles great. My current bike is a Honda Custom touring bike. On a previous Interstate bike I put on a little over 8,000 miles before I sold it and it still had plenty of meat left. Good cornering, good ride, I rate this as a good value. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 6, 2011

    Worth more than I paid

    I have been an avid biker for over 30 years and have been through a lot of tires. 95% of those that claim to be "high mileage" end up being no better than any other. Truth be know is that there is NO holy grail when it comes to tires. Bottom line is there are three factors that determine tire wear/life, and that's rider & cargo weight, riding style and the bike itself. Of course any tire will last longer on a lightweight jap bike than it would on a Harley as I have (and I weigh 274 lbs). Proper inflation is also a key to tire wear. So unless the reviewer reveals some or all of this info, take it with a spoon of salt. I have purchased numerous brands and they have lasted almost the same (4500-5500 mi). This tire is no exception but for one thing, and that is the price. DEFINITELY a bargain. Delivery was way fast (3 days ahead of schedule). Tread pattern is good looking and functional. Wears evenly and is well balanced. Out preforms tires 3 times the price. Will definitely... 5/5 Mike frady - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Shinko 712 Rear Tire - 130/90H-16/-- I bought front and rear Shinko 712s for my 1988 Honda NX250. They spooned on just fine and balanced easily. After scuffing them in for about 100 miles, they have performed better than I expected. They are quiet and smooth and hold the road really well in corners. I commute 350 miles per week and have been caught in several rain storms since I installed these tires. After the first wet road, I have total confidence in them. The only tire I have had handle the rain as well as these were my Metzler 880s on my Goldwing.The next bike in the stable that needs tires is the Ninja and I'll be putting Shinkos on it as well! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 21, 2012
