Another tire question Shinko 804

Recommended Posts

I know it's another tire question but is anyone running the Shinko 804/805 big blocks on their DRZ?  I want a DOT tire and I mostly ride pavement and dirt roads but I am a novice at off road riding and I want to have tires that I am confident to take off-road. 

So any opinions on these or others?  Thanks folks, Mark

ive never used that tire but what i can tell you is that any of those 'dual purpose' tread patterns are not great for offroad ... they will be alittle better than street tires, think of it that way ... if you push that type of tire hard in a fast sweeper your going to wind up in the bushes with a big cloud of dust all around you .. my advice is if you plan on doing alot of off road riding, like an actual 50% or more of the time its better to run a full knob and just deal with the faster wear on the street  .... if you do go with a tire like those big blocks just resign yourself to exploring mode for offroad, im sure they'll get you around, just be cautious ...
