Just wondering if anyone has purchased these tires and what they think about them. Just bought a set from tirerack.com for $48.00 per tire. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Theyre alright. I run them, I dont spin second at all with front and rear poly mounts, 16v tranny and clutch and turbo. They handle alright too, and wear pretty evenly. Just rotate them every now and then. I get about 15000 miles out of them if im not mistaken

when buying tires, you get what you pay for. I had kumho's and was severly dissapointed when i only got 10,000 mi out of them. My next pair of bridgestones is going 20,000+ and strong with excellent traction. Spend the extra $$ and get something decent.

I'm currently running Nankangs so anything besides a Nankang is an upgrade IMO. I figured they can't be that great for the price why not give it a shot? Did you say you only got 10,000 miles out of them. That's crazy, I hope thats not the case...

Loud and really craptastic wet traction.

just to reiterate, they're retarthless in the rain, but noise didn't bother me so much. save up a few more bucks and get something else.

That bad in the rain huh? Too late to change they should be arriving tomorrow or Thursday. I'll suck it up for now and get better tires next time. For what I paid, if they only last me 15,000 miles I won't even be mad.
