I wouldn't risk the gamble. I got a good set of Goodyear virgin take offs the other day for my boom truck for $150 with 80% left on them mounted.

The only Chinese tire i have seen thats worth a SHAT is the double coin tires and even then i would ONLY run them on a drive not a steer im not that big of a gambler when i comes to things like that.

plus i know how hot it gets out there during the summer and i wouldn't trust running the highway on a Chinese tire being the only thing keeping me from plowing a minivan into oblivion.

I have used many sets of Firestone T831's and Goodyear G177's they seem to be fine tires.
Tho i think the firestone got better traction than the Goodyears did but the Goodyears tended to last a bit longer.

I've run a few Wanlie tires they copied Firestone, Double Coin copied Michelin tires to the T and end up in court, I've got a set of Double coin on a lowboy (came from the factory with them been good tires) but I've been buying Daytons there American Made exact same tires as a firestone or bridgestone they come all off the same line

I never heard of that one. I even spelled it backwards, ilnaw. Now that sounds more like a tire there..
