    Be the pioneer and try them out. Raising a thread from the dead they must be allright if they still around. Hopefully not the same set from 2 years ago. Lol.

    I saw an ad the other day for a Chinese tire brand stating "the number one import commercial tire". It just made me want to buy more than I needed to sell to friends. Seriously, number one compared to what?

    I know there are people that will swear by the two Chinese drives for the change in their pockets & got 200,000 miles out of them. But thinking the biggest thing with many of those tires is that there is no consistency or standards they have to live by. You may get a couple decent tires at a fair price, but every time I have saved a nickel on tread it has cost me much more.
