I use them on Mad Dog bikes so the grip is not nearly as critical and the price is right. I have not used the 19's on a 250 or 450 but the 17's work great on the play bikes. Pressure wise I run 12-18 psi depending on grip, clay groove tracks (Lawrenceburg and Mid-America/RTR).

Anybody using the shinko flattrack tires? What kind of pressure are you using on what kind of track? Thanks for any info.
I bought a new rear Shinko for my Trackmaster XS, rode it on the Sacramento Amateur Mile with no complaints. 24 LBS air pressure if I remember correctly. (event was 8/19)

I ran a Shinko on my 450 on both a deep cushion and a groove track with good success on the groove track. Ran 25psi and the ambient air temperature was quite low. Mid 60's. The tire was medium compound and I don't think it would last long on the deep cushion (Pee Gravel). But it hooked up well on the groove track and wear didn't seem to bad. My twin needs a new rear tire and I will try a Shinko on it.

We use them (16") on the Mad Dog bikes as well and they hook up good on the hard stuff and seem to wear well. Pressure at 20 psi. Both the 241 and 244 since there are not many options for the 16" wheels. I'll be ordering 19's for my Vintage Champion Yam 3 soon and will let you know

Just got the 267/268 soft compound tires in for the Vintage 250 and will let you know after I get to try them out. They are also pretty much the only thing I could find for the 19" wheels

It's a 73 Champion frame with Cerrani forks. Fits fine on the rear but is too wide for the front, had to go with the Dunlop K180 100/90-19 which is not a soft compound and very skinny but it is the only thing available. I'll measure the rear( mounted on a WM3) and let you know

Well I was able to stumble across this. Witch should help point me in the right direction as far as what I can fit between my forks.

I measured 5 inch tire width for the front on a 3 1/4 inch rim.
Thanks for taking the time to check that for me I just ordered a 130 front and a 140 rear what tubes if any are you using in the 130? Can’t wait to get this bike finished. I picked it up on Facebook marketplace for 50 bucks in 3 buckets but turns out it’s kinda a rare bike as far as the engine it was built by Eric gore and it’s a 250 punched out to a 310 should be a blast I just finished the bottom end all new crank seals bearings and installed a wide ratio trans wile I was in the so should hit 100 plus mph
