Shinko tyres
« on: July 16, 2019, 02:01:23 pm »
Has anyone considered using Shinko 804 front and 805 rear tyres.  I see they are very well priced and seem to compare well with TKC 80 tyres. The write ups are very good on ADV rider.  I spoke to the importer this morning .He said the retail for the rear is R1500. but no stock until September. No one here in PMB sells them.

Guts n Gas up here used to sell them. Don't know if they have stock.

I've also heard they are very similar to the TKC80 Except:
- They were a bit better/longer
- Not as good grip laterally in loose/muddy stuff.

Also tempted to try, but I LOVE the motoz tractionator adventure too much :biggrin: (Although, it's looking like I'm going to need a new rear tyre in the same month as I need to service, next month....so cheaper Shinko might be a plan!)

I had the same on my 1150GS. Ended up doing longer tar riding than anticipated so by the time I traded to the 1190Adv, the rear had about half of itís life left after 4000km. The wear on the front was also more consistent across the knobs compared to the TKC80, and MCE Karoo I had previously. Will definitely buy a set when I need to replace my current tires.

I have had the back tyres on my 990 and they grip similar to the TKC80 and last a decent amount of time, definitely worth it as far as the bang for buck.

I have not tried the front.

I have been phoning around. No one has these tyres. I am looking for the 805 rear. I think we must all ask for them ,then the bike shops might start listening . Bike tyre prices i think have become a rip off.

also couldn't see any on their website now.

Agreed that bike tyre prices are out of control.

I supply and have some sizes in stock.  Just depends on the size you require.  I am assuming 90/90-21 and 150/80-18.
