    ha ha ha ha funny to see someone else calling them ditch finders!

    I always think that the only thing keeping the car on the road is the four tyres so I dont mind paying for half decent ones!

    exactly that.

    In the summer I might risk them, but not in this weather. I had some Wanali's - sp? - on my BMW last year, got under taken by an old woman in a micra while I was sideways on a wet roundabout. Needless to say they went in the bin the next day!

    clearly a no go then...the price of the tyres pretty much explains the quality £53 per tyre

    If you need them to be cheap to get you out of a fix fair enough, just dont expect the same performance as you get from a dunlop or the like....I also think they wear much faster so you will buy 2 for every 1 branded tyre...

    Have you ever stopped to think how tyres are priced? It's nothing to do with production costs, it's all about market position.

    An expensive tyre won't stay expensive if cheaper tyres are just as good - and equally cheap tyres will stay cheap if they're inferior to more expensive ones.

    Only "premium" and "mainstream" tyres are submitted for detailed testing to the likes of Auto Express and Autocar - I wonder why?

    That statement isn't exactly true. Not all of the cost is made up in the manufacture although you do pay a lot for the differences. There is a reason they are cheaper and it is mostly down to the fact that they are not as good.

    Nexen 3000's lasted me 6k on the signum, Wanali 1098's were just dangerous - they are not suited to out colder cilmate, probably great in Asia. I don't trust cheap tyres...... Just google them and read the reports on other forums that real people with real experiance say.

    Most of these seem to hate them too.
