    I'll second that, put it on now! That stock tire sucks. My 244 has well over 3000 miles on it, mostly street, and it's still got a TON of tread left. Sticks to both dirt and pavement a lot better than the stock tire too

    Don't wait. The Shinko will feel funny for the first couple of rides on the street, but when you get it off road you will know you made the right decision

    Yup change it now before the OEM one possibly gets you hurt. It makes a better swing for the kids IMHO.

    Remember a new tire can be slippery at first until it gets scuffed up for a few miles.

    I hated the OEM front tire before I changed to the Shinko 244 4.60-18. Now, I think the OEM tire is dangerous. Everyone should change to anything else. To top it off, my OEM tire was 18 years old and harder than calculus.

    I just did it for both my bikes, Shinko 244s and Bridgestone TW34. Rockmountain had them for $58.99 and $97.99 each delivered. I did give it a go to install them myself but after about an hour in the garage I loaded all 4 in the truck and took them to the dealer. For $25 each getting the old ones off and new ones with new tubes on and balanced I could not be bothered expending the energy to DIY. I think this is the best $200 per bike I have spent so far.

    Just a quick 2 mile road run so far on one TW and the Shinko does feel a bit squirrely but I will get used to it once it gets scuffed. I am running 18PSI in both and put the heavy duty tubes in.

    I agree, get rid of the crappy front tire. I got the 241 not the 244 but man what a difference. The front feels like its glued to the ground unlike the stocker which by the way only had 300 miles on it in case anyone is looking for one cheap.

    I am running 22 psi, both front and back for the street. Shinko 244 feels good on the front. TW34, back. I go to 18 psi in both for dirt/gravel.
