I finally decided on the new tires for my hawk 250 dual sport bike. I got over 3000 miles with the stock knobbies and that is mostly street riding.
I got the Shinko 244 from Revzilla, right now I see they have the lowest price $78 with free shipping. I’m not sure how long this will last. Link is here
Shinko 244 Dual Sport Tires for Hawk 250
UPDATE 4/8: I just checked my email 4/8/17 and it says I will have these tires today. Man the shipping from RevZilla was very fast!. I’m currently working on a YouTube video of me doing my first tire change and now I will be doing a second one =)
