If paying a little more means the difference between coming home alive and coming home in a box, I rather spend that little more. I know there are the commuters who rarely, if ever venture onto the highways or exceed 60 km/h, these would probably be absolutely perfect. I just don't want to experience a blow out doing 100-120km/h. If someone experiences a blowout at 40-60km/h, I would imagine the car can still manage to stop in a reasonable distance on the rim. You might careen into parks cars or ? forbid into pedestrians but there's little you can do when it's in excess of 100km/h and over.. flips/rolls are imminent.

I'm tempted. Have to see in the spring if the crappy Hercules I have can last a season. One shakes like a mofo despite a balance, one is unevenly worn down one shoulder and all 4 look to be around 40% tread.
Well, seeing the success you've had with other cheap tires, I can see why you're willing to go even cheaper.
That's the end of my rant.

Tire size: 175/75R13
Rim: aluminum
Km on car: 199500km
Km on this tire: 300km
Experienced in Rain? Yes, sudden sharp turn at 80km/h, 4th gear, traction good. Saved me from hitting curb.

Service in walmart
Warrenty: yes, life time free repair w receipt, side wall damage need to charge. 100,000km trend warrenty. Refund not reached % when buy new set of tire from walmart.
Each 10,000 km free rotation, free rebalace
Issue: yes, initially not balance well. Need to be back due to 90km/h shake shake shake.... after rebalance, good.
It feels round and it holes air.

Tire Price: 42.5 x4 tires
Labor price: mount and balance 14each x4
Recycle fee: 5 eachx4
Tax 12%

The following are my feeling only. Reguardless my feeling u dont need to read them.

Do I worry about quality before I buy these tires? Yes
How do I feel now? Thank god!
Why still buy?
1) Old tire need replace. No $ after changing transmition.
2) good looking pattern, and finish. Similar with oem or kumho.

Did i look for other tires before these?
Yes, i look for michellin defender in kaltire, cost over $700.

Still recommand michilin or will recommand this?
Before trying, dont recommand this. After using, sa601 is good enough.

Thanks for reading, if dont like me dont x me. Thks

The one that shakes after a balance means the tire is probably deteriorating from the inside, and is not safe to continue to be used. The unevenly worn one might be caused by a bad alignment (yes, even if your car tracks straight it could still be out of alignment). Replace your tires and get your car checked before you hurt someone.

I have Hercules Ironman iMove tires. Been running just fine for me. I didn't buy them by choice, came as a package with the rims.

Which ones are you using?
