    These tires are GREAT. For under $100 for 245/35/20 front 275/30/20 rear. You cannot beat the performance for the price. Note! These tires have to warm up a bit to get full grip, but when they do, amazing.
    I have experience snap oversteer at the extreme limit a couple times but usually very progressive.
    Wet - With RWD can be slippery on tight corner exiting.

    I'd recommend for anyone looking for good performance on a bought.

    We drive daily 100km on these tyres at or about 100km/hr.
    The car sits on the road briliantly, wet or dry, overtaking or cornering. The cabin noise is low and the steering wheel feel is good at all times.
    We have yet to try frost or ice but we have to wait for winter for that :)

    Given 59% while driving a Toyota Scion tC (/45 R17) on mostly town for 14,000 spirited miles
    Amazing Dry Grip, exceptional wet grip, don't expect $200 performance out of a $50 tire, but pretty close for what it is. It really struggles in wear; I ate through 2 tires in about 14k miles, not the greatest.

    Given 49% while driving a Honda S2000 (255/40 R17) on mostly country roads for 1,000 spirited miles
    Dangerous! Impassable in my car when wet. When it's dry, the rear also goes away as soon as you want to accelerate through a tight bend. Unfortunately, the previous owner had brought it, apparently only for sale, since the tires still look like new. At first I thought it would be a shame to change it directly, but it has to go as soon as possible. It might be enough for a city polo, etc., but on the Honda S2000 it's just suicide if you want to drive it ambitiously. But that's what the car was built for and it's a shame to devalue the car so much in terms of performance.

    Great Value economy tire, sport appearance without the performance. Its just an average tire: not good, not terrible... you get what you pay for. Sidewalls are a weak point. Under-inflated driving will quickly damage this tire.

    Pretty decent and grippy when dry. Not too loud. Very unstable at highway speeds in wet conditions. I would only suggest for cheap dry track day tires.

    Given 83% while driving a Holden Ute SS (275/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
    Bought these again for the ute which is cammed, otr, exhaust, higgins heads, 3.9 diff gears with 387rwkw with staggered Simmons.... Of course any V8 will light these bad boys up but i paid AUD$90 each and they are awesome in the dry. Any car putting out big power will drift easy in the wet. Nice and quiet and much better than the Federal 595's they replaced. Read comments that some people have bad handing in wet, maybe slow down. Also comments of poor wear and noise. Maybe its the tyre mob who fit them because mine are awesome. Happily buy again.

    Ultimate crap tyres, fitted on my 2004 Toyota Celica GT-S. I didn't buy them, so must've been a previous owner's work. It's impossibly cheap, they DON'T GRIP WELL IN WET OR DRY and are absolutely rubbish to drive with. They're noisy, and might result in brown pants if you're speeding with them. Absolutely do not buy.

    First 1000 miles are a death scare... Once they get broken in, they are alright. They have very hard sidewalls so the performance is pretty good, responsiveness is good. Balancing is a problem at high speeds, steering wheel shaking/feedback. I came off Brigestone tires which I was pleased with but were too expensive. Tried going cheaper, but got what I paid for with these tires. Probably won't purchase again. Overall, sweet looking tire, performance is OK, but don't trust them at high speeds. Good for a everyday driver if you aren't going to push them to the limit. If your looking for a cheap tire to drive moderately, they will work. Just don't expect them to be a high performance tire.

    Wet grip was very terrible. Driving during raining and/or wet surfaces are not recommended by using this tyre. Extremely dangerous and no confident in taking corners even with a speed of 50 km/hr. Side wall soft. Very regret puchasing this tyres. Will not buy again!

    Have been using these on my cars for years; not the best in terms of high performance but a bargain when looking for a performance tyre for your daily driver. Have run them on VZ Commodores with no problems, now on an modded and tuned Mazda6 MPS. Awesome off the line grip and corner capability. 10/10 would recommend.

    I have had these tyres for 15000km, 275 rear, 245 front, tyre wear is great. Traction in dry is good, but they are absolutely horrendous in the wet, so bad im replacing them as they are dangerous. Will never put these on a car again.
