Duro HF307 Trail Tire


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

I have the Duro HF307. It measures about 2.75" uninflated, so even after inflation it should probably fit. I ended up also buying a Shinko 244, which is considerably wider despite being called the same size. I had to shave down a lot to get the Shinko 244 to fit, but I like the tread pattern, so it was worth the effort. And mess.

@BFE Duke How'd this tire work out for you?

The Duro worked out great. It's a dual sport tire so decent offroad, decent on road. The Shinko 244 ended up being way too wide, even after shaving off knobbies with the angle grinder.

Awesome! Can't find the Shinko but found an online insitu seller that has the Duro. I'm gonna order it for my S18 as well. Should be a nice upgrade from the shyte stock slicks.

@Scottie888  Could you post pics or an update after you put the Duro on your S18? I almost bought that tire a couple days ago but I was unsure if it was going to fit. I ended up getting the Pirelli Angel because I know for sure it will fit. But I really want a more off road style tire. I mostly just needed to get rid of the crappy stock tire, it's so terrible.

Will do but its likely wont be til sometime in spring til I get to it. @BFE Duke can you confirm the Duro 307 fits on the S18?

Unfortunately Duro 307 is too tight on S18. S18 fender wells are very narrow unfortunately. Both in width and diameter. Might have to try 2.50 width tire

Edit: I should probably clarify, I ended up putting the Duro on the MSP and retired that Shinko 244. Hope I didn't cause too much confusion.

Thanks brother. Bummer for sure. Sad is there's not much 14x2.5 offroad tires out there & even fewer dual purpose which is optimal for me. Is it possible to grind the tire down to S18 size?

I might try this one out to see if it works for the S18

That's the same tire I have in this thread. It works really well, though the change in tire width does change the ride characteristics a bit. If you're pure trail riding I'd recommend it, but if you're looking for both street and road, it might be better to continue looking.

Thanks. Perhaps changing to tubeless and/or adjusting PSI would bring about better street characteristics.

This is certainly one thing that I haven't quite tried. I set my pressure at a relatively high amount since I hit pretty technical trails that I am worried I could bottom out on. At 140 pounds (maybe 150 geared) I am running between 30-35 psi. I could probably get a more compliant road ride with a lower pressure.
