      Chinese....

      Considering how important tires are, why let price dictate what you buy? Do this: Logon to Tirerack.com and pick out a nice set of NAME BRAND tires, have them shipped to your local tire rack recommended installer and mounted/balanced. You'll get the tires near wholesale price and end up with QUALITY tires for about the same price.

      Never heard of them.

      Then again, there are people who have tried Nexen tires & have been happy with them.

      I purchased "diamondback" tires for my Audi A6 avant 225-40-18 for $53 dollars each and they are a directional all season tire and seem pretty good so far. 3,000 miles plus. The tread design is the same as a Nanking tire and a few others. Go figure! I'll take this cheap tire over the BFG KDW 2 tires I have on my passat. They are 4 times the cost and I hate them!

      Well...speaking of Nexens, every experience I've had with them has been poor. Apparently this company is owned by Lexani, which is a wheel manufacturer of some of the mose god awful wheel designs ever, lol...but DAMN that sure is cheap. 300 bucks for a set of 18s.

      Might be worth a try.

      My point! You are paying for the name and getting screwed!

      No you're not. You're paying for R&D that goes toward tread design, rubber compound, construction, etc. Keep telling yourself that the Chinese Michelin replicas are as good, if that makes you happy.

      Maybe so but I'm like a tire whore because I go through so many wheels and I have been happy with the cheaper tires over some of the more expensive ones I have bought. Everyone has their opinion and me being a VW/Audi/ Lotus tech I see, mount, balance tires all the time. I see bubbles in our expensive Continental and Goodyear F1 All season tires all the time. I see excessive Road force in our perrelliP6 four season tires almost everytime. The cheaper Kumho, sumitumo,hankook tires have held up the best. Our Lotus customers request us to take off their exspensive Yokohama Advan tires and replace them with cheap General tires because they wear and handle better. Tires are Mass produced and Companies put there name on it. A majority of our tires have the writing MADE IN CHINA! Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

      ....and General tires are owned by Continental. Think of them as... Old Navy version of Gap stores.

      ...my General Altimax Arctic are made in Germany

      You mentioned several brands which are well-established and known. General, Sumitomo, Kuhmo, etc. It's "delinte" and other brands like Nexen and Wan-Li I wouldn't trust.
