The smaller tire's knobs felt like they squirmed around more--better for the trail, not so good for the track. It was praised by most of our riders for its bite in the turns on the side of the tire. It does a really good job of resisting chunking until you get it into really sharp rocks and even there is holds up well in comparison to most. If you go too stiff in pressure the tire will bounce as well, there is a sweet spot for sure. But in chop or bumpy conditions it has a different feel that bothered some riders.

All the reviews I read about the cheater tire were very good and had me wondering. The tire hooks up well even after knobs are worn past where you would normally replace the tire. Product 87-4364S AvailabilityIn Stock: Ships within 24 hours. The 505 will stick longer before spinning and then catch sooner when spinning. Even when the knobs look worn, it still provides plenty of grip. Then on a moto track that was dry and baked, the 505 could handle the blue groove and help paint the baked dirt that color. In mud it just comes down to the tread pattern and the mostly close blocks, they spin up easy and keep spinning as the rubber compound, unlike a real trials tire, does not help things even on wet rocks or roots.

I ride at a faster pace than others think is possible on this bike. Mud performance is on par with most other knobbies I've used, same goes for snow riding. The rubber compound is very soft to the touch just a little stiffer than a true trials tire with knobs that are easy to stretch and twist around with your finger. We tested two different sizes, both 18-inch. Perhaps not a tire for a 450 or an overly aggressive throttle.

Dry hardpacked, loose shale and granite. Also used this tire on some hill climb which in that situation I wished I had a regular tire. It did not want to climb out of ruts and sliding was predictable. You have to play with different pressures depending on the speed you want to ride more than anything. As for the traction, the tire is pretty impressive. The Cheater is the best of both worlds, with a soft sticky rubber compound like the Shinko Trail Pro 255 trials tire and a knobby tread pattern to work in a wider variety of soil conditions. Installed the tire with no problem and t worked perfectly for what I needed it for.

What surprised us was that the breaking grab in skidding went away before the forward or acceleration grip started to go as the tire wore out. Not gonna last very long because it's so soft but you will get great traction. All the while lasting much longer than a more expensive hard-track specific tire. All you have to do is learn your proper air pressure. The knobs do not tear off like most standard tires do in really rocky conditions. Think rock faces or concrete starting pads. .

Review the following guidelines to see how easy it is to maximize your rewards and put your ZillaCash to work for you. Like a trials tire it rewards a rider that is a little careful with the spinning but it lets you get away with way more spinning than a trials tire ever will. They really wanted us to take it all the way to the track and are glad we did. But this tire seems custom made for that slightly more aggressive rider as it will not penalize you for spinning as bad. It is way better than a trials tire as it resists total loss of traction in a skid, it has bite. We also suggest the larger of the tires for any track use as the smaller sizes are pretty small and the knob block size is reduced.

But I would for sure buy this tire again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for the gnar. It has some trials tire stick on the rocks but also enough spacing to allow aggressive throttle in loose or sandy conditions, something a trials tire will not tolerate. The Shinko also brakes very well, something trials tires can't match. Any ZillaCash you earn is automatically applied to the next purchase, so you can sit back, enjoy the ride and feel the savings blow through your hair. The knob size and cut is more of a hardpack tread design and the tire appears to be non-directional in tread design but there is a direction arrow on the sidewall. And as heavy as the tire was we did not feel the weight as much as we thought we would.

In the beginning the tire had good braking performance. This is a pretty surprising tire and we learned a lot at the same time. But tire pressure can help here as the soft carcass lets the tire collapse and stick and grab things when needed. We did not test the 19-inch rim sizes but we suspect the wallow would be much less and therefore track and harder riding performance would suffer less from this character. Even in low pressure riding, never had any flats. The wet is where we had some issues. This tread pattern is meant to make up where a trials tire can fall short in braking and loose soil conditions.

All out straight line traction is a little less than a trials tire but cornering and braking are better. The ZillaCash rewards program is very straightforward - if you have a RevZilla account, you may already be taking advantage of ZillaCash rewards. We know trials tires are not for everyone, especially riders who have a hard time not spinning the rear wheel. The wear rate for such a soft tire is actually really good. The soft compound of this tire allows it to grip like mad and not get kicked around in rock gardens.
