I'll pay that :lol:

I think that you need to be a bit more specific. Is triangle the brand, the tread pattern or the shape??

triangle is a brand like dunlop. If someone has had them, they will probably know that. If they don't know, they probably haven't had them and won't know if they are any good. :)

Hope they are better than some of the cheap Korean s**t. I was intending replacing my standard rims with something else so didn't want to put good ones on - when tyres were due ended up with 'darkhorse' tyres to see me out. F**k they were scary. When you're life can depend on it, don't skimp. The new rims had standard monzas and I can tell you what, the difference was really noticable - on one occasion I was expecting to go up the back of a bloke, but the monzas pulled me up real quick in comparison - I'm sure the cheapies wouldn't have.

Anyway, end of rant. Sorry, I went on a bit. :)

cooki monsta cant agree more. my ba started shaking and drifting on the road recently. took it to ford for other work, and they pointed out a massive bubble in my near new nankang tyre. i got it replaced and sent the defected tyre off for testing. apparently the tread had started separating or something from the tyre, and water got in causing the steel belts to rust and change shape causing a bubble. as this wasnt a manufacturing defect apparently (the report said i must of done something in the first place to cause the tread to seperate) i wasnt able to get compensation. so a 17 inch tyre with 85% tread got binned and i had to front for a new one. what a freaking gypp. apologies for hijacking the thread for my own rant

Triangles been around for a long time with truck tyres,excellent quality and cheap.In recent years they have been releasing 4wd and car tyres and have had a lot of complaints about road noise.

i noticed there is alot of no name tires around now..
i had a cheap pair called clear.. they were rubbish ive seen better retreads lol..
a mate of mine showed me a set he bought the other day and they were called yellow sea..
i just smiled and said ok if your happy with them i guess thats ok lol..

ive never heard of triangle...

the last couple of sets of tyres ive been a bit of a tight a** and you get what you pay for!
cheap = cheap grip,cheap performance,lots of road noise/vibrations. ect

i know the next set i get will be back to pirelli's for me ....
