Default So how do you like them?

I have run across these tires as well and was wondering how you liked them? Do you have anything else to compare them to?

I have heard that they are cheap. And you get what you pay for.

I never heard of them. But wangli is "Ten Thousand Miles" in Chinese, I hope they last longer than that.

80 pounds each. That's ridiculously expensive for those tires. They are less than $80 a piece here.

They are made in Korea btw and are just cheap tires. Not performance oriented in any way.

LOL--you just discovered the true pound-to-dollar exchange rate. The pound is supposedly worth almost twice as much as a dollar, yet it barely buys more than a dollar does.

I am running them on my WRX for driving around. I bought them about a year ago when I needed tires REALLY badly and I was broke. They actually grip ok, but the sidewall is very, VERY soft. The tires do have about 10k on them now, and are still at about 2/3 of the tread left before the wear bars.

Overall, I wouldn't buy them again unless I had to have a really cheap tire again.

"AVS Sport Knockoff's" ???

The tread pattern may look the same, but don't let that fool you as to the performance. Compound, sidewall construction, etc are all most definately different.

The 17.5% VAT doesn't help.
