well...after seeing this thread, I bought a couple sets of tires from them, and got them in 9 days.

8 tires (2 sets) delivered in 9 days for less than $20.00.

I'm building a car for a GT class that requires NON DISH wheels and if nothing else - they will make a good set of Shelf Queen wheels/tires.

Not for a beginner, where simply learning what to do, and when to do it, is more important than speed. Burning through a set of cheap tires will be better than wasting $30 when they can't take advantage of what the good tires can do.

My first set of tires came off ebay, they did their job while I re-learned how to drive an on-road car again.

Anyway, can't complain on china low end junk.

I ordered a few sets as well but they haven't come in yet. Have you ran them? What are your thoughts as to quality, grip level out of 10?

I plan to report back as soon as mine come in and my build is finished.
