Im a fan of the shinko 244, but somefolks dont like them too, youll just have to try one , and see ifit suits you.

figure out what size you need, check those sites, add to basket, check shipping, complete the purchase on the one with the cheapest cost, or the one you want ( some websites suck to navigate, so I dont always buy the cheapest if its within just a few bucks)

Ive ordered from motorcycle superstore, bikebandit, rockymtatv, and I think chap racing...

never used sw moto but heard good things.

ok went out and looked at my tire. it says on it 100/100/18/64m look on the web sites for a tire and dont see anything. the other number just looked like a model number on the tire. any ideas?

Think my chain might be loose. dam i need so much crap. bigger fuel tank. some turn signals and all that. Might have been cheaper to get a dual sport to start with

google tells me its this


Front 21" 80/100-21
Rear 18" 110/100-18

But I am guessing you could run a 120 rear if you wanted, or probably a 4.6" or maybe even 5.1" rear, Doc?


I know a 5.1" fits on my dr350, but its too fat...

here ya go Stuck

one thing, since you arent street legal, NON dot legal tires are probably cheaper, but if you ride much pavement at all they will go away like butter on a skillet.

yep, whats your tire say now?

probably like 110/100/18?

its in millimeters.

110 mm wide, 100% aspect ratio, and 18 inch wheel.

some places rate them in inches...

110 mm is about 4.3 inches.

that 4.10 will be a bit narrower

Now ive heard tht narrower tires handle better, but I really dont know that to be a fact.
