    Default Weird tyre make names

    I always tend to buy budget tyres and have some really strange sounding tyres on my cars over the years. The two that still stick out
    were

    Fate
    and
    Woosung Dark Horse

    Anyone else come going to admit being a cheap skate and name their weird tyre brands?

    Who on earth would consider putting these on their car?!?
    Every time I see these, all I think of is 20p or 50p piece

    Not comprehensive, but there are a few more on there :

    I think the tyre manufacturers dont really have a grasp of the English language.

    Full runs are the worst tyres I've ever put on a car, no wet grip and noisy as hell if in the rear due to dodgey wear...

    I now hav a set of "triangle", still cheap but there pretty good, and they have a rim protector...
