What kind of mileage from these tires
Charles Youells - June 4, 2019
Thank you for your inquiry Charles. We have seen some customers with as little as 4k miles on these tires and other with over 10k miles on a set. There are many factors which come into play... air pressure, the bike, your riding style, load (luggage) if you ride solo or 2-up... These are a robust and long lasting tire for most customers. -- Kyle & the Chap Moto Team

Is the 777 and 777hd the same load rating?
Michael - February 22, 2019
Thank you for your inquiry Michael. No, the Shinko 777 Rear Tire and the 777HD tires do not share the same load rating. In fact, each tire size has its own load rating respectively. The 777HD utilizes Arimid belts and a reinforced carcass for heavier load ratings and increased mileage. -- Kyle & the Chap Moto Team

What's the difference between the tour master 230 and the 777 heavy duty?
Merle Barkley - July 11, 2018
Great question Merle. The Tour Master 230 is a tire designed for long distance high speed riding. I wish I knew the bike you are looking to outfit... so I will just go with a 150/80-16 Rear. The Tour Master 230 has a load index of 71 which means 761 pounds and a speed rating of V which means 149+ mph. The Shinko 777 Heavy Duty in the same 150/80-16 Rear has a load rating of 77 which means 908 pounds and a speed rating of H for speeds up to 130 mph. The 777 HD is a more robust tire meant for cruising / touring at a speed less than 130 mph. - Kyle & the Chap Moto Team

Shinko 777 Rear Tire
Shinko 4 Life
The Shinko 777 is by far my favorite tire on the market due to excellent traction and a price that's even better. I've ran shinko tires for the last 4 years on all my personal bikes and every bike I build I've done for customers. I've run avon, cobra, Metzler, Dunlop and vee rubber... and In my opinion they don't hold a candle to the 777. I have a very aggressive riding style Shinko holds the corners tight and give you the perfect response. Didn't really need 100 words to tell you how great these shinko 777's are but definitely worth the buy you will not be disappointed!
Similar to Commander 2 But Less Money
Tire has been ridden for 3000 miles or so on my Yamaha Bolt R-SPEC. I'm riding this 180 width tire on a 3.5" wheel with no issues whatsoever. Very happy with the price, noise, cornering & stopping ability. Compares to the Michelin Commander 2 which is what I was running prior, but this one is way less expensive. Haven't yet ridden in cold weather or snow, but this tire performs in warm weather rain. Definitely not afraid to be aggressive on corners or stopping ability. For the price, this is one of the better tires I have bought in the past. It also comes in whitewall as well. Do not hesitate to buy this!
All My Bikes Will Have Shinko
I switched to Shinko because they handled as well as the Bridgestone's and cost considerably less. They have proven to be a very good tire at a bargain price. I own five motorcycles and they will all eventually have Shinko tires. I have tried just about every brand over the years and Shinko is the best value.
More Mileage than Metzeler
I purchased Shinko tires as my first set after I purchased my Vstar Silverado. It had Metzler tires on in and I was going to purchase the same tires it had to replace the worn set. After looking at Shinko tires, I decided to give Shinko a try. There were about half of what the Metzler tires cost and I figured if I got half the mileage from the Shinko tires, I would be ahead. Surprisingly, I exceeded the mileage of the Metzlers, with no problems. I tracked the wear of the tires to determine if there were worth it. I was very satisfied with the wear and handling of the Shinko tires, riding 2 up with my wife, mostly in sunny conditions, but occasionally in the rain. I have only purchased Shinko tires every since then, about 6 years, replacing the front tire every year and the rear every other.
Made My Friend Get Them Too
I live in the mountains, the bike is a heavy FLH shovelhead, with a modified engine. I was getting about 3500 miles out of the original tires, and I wanted more. These have over 4000 miles and still a ways to go. I don't ride this bike on the Highway, mostly local back roads. Great tire with great performance. From highway 180 into Kings Canyon National Park to Sequoia and all mountain areas in my back yard, these tires do the job in all conditions I have encountered with them. I like them so much I have installed them on friends bikes with great response from them as well.
