I don't ride really fast and don't mind the tires wallowing around. I wore out my last 505 because the sidewall was tearing form the inside and the tire was walking all over. I have another fatty on order and will be replacing the old one soon. This last one worked so well I swapped it used from my gasgas to the orange bike I bought this summer, it looked fine when I swapped it. Ill let you know how it looks after I take it off.

I have not run the 505. I have run the GT523 which is my hands down favorite tire for NW slick but they discontinued that one. The GT333 is very good but not as good as the 523 for me. The IBEX withthe tubliss at 7 PSI is about as good as the GT523 for me. Really liking that setup.

I dont like Shinko tires, had so many people tell me this model or that model is good and I tried them and never found ones I have liked. I have not tried the 505 cheater. The always seemed to be OK when new, tapered off very quickly and then started to fail and spit knobs way to early.

In general you gain a little and lose a little with tubliss. Meaning if you run low pressure you gain traction but lose side knobs and trash the sidewalls. The fix for me was to use firm sidewall desert tires and stay away from light weight MX tires. When faster guys run soft mx tires they have to run more air pressure to not lose side knobs so they end up with less gain then the slow guy who can run 5 psi and not ruin the tire. The fastest guys I know run bibs or HD tubes with standard pressures. I'm slow and love the low pressure with tubliss and a hard desert tire combo. I've staub flat many times but every one of those would have been a flat with a tube. The traction to play on an enduro like a trials bike is the best part of having tubliss. Tubliss also protects your rim from rock dents because of the 360 degree rim lock effect. If you go with Tubliss as a traction device you won't be disappointed. If you don't mind the extra weight and want stone reliability go with the bib.
