i originaly got a pair for the front but i had problems with the steering shaking at about 110 kms and no matter how many times i got them checked and balanced the still shake.

so i got them on the rear now
and i put the rear tyres on the front and no more shake.

so i think there only good for burnouts.. :lol:

sometimes you need to get an on car wheel balance. I have before and they work well but I would suspect those tyres may have bulges in them

havent heard of them, we stay away from cheap s**t, our cheapest tyres we recommend are GT radials, but if customer wants cheap nasty ones we can arrange for it

Smokey tryes only.. saw a report on em and they were outright s**t. only thing they won was cheapest price. and yeah, someone has already said it but the report I was reading also rated retreads better than these s**t korean Clear tyres. Probably made with melted down used condoms and sex toys. stuff that was never designed to have traction in the first place
