Comparison of initial characteristics. Slavens Racing sells this as the Extreme 525S. Tokyo Offroad calls it the 525X, the Shinko USA website calls it the 525 Hybrid Cheater. Not to be confused with the 216SX Shinko currently in Europe and Australia which is a F.I.M. approved copy of the Goldentyre 216X. And … the 525X could be different from the USA 525 Hybrid Cheater.
To make things more complicated, Shinko literature says that the tire is for a soft to intermediate ground. Slaven indicates it as intermediate to hard. Thank you for making Shinko simple. Phew!
