Sunny, Nankang, Federal tires.

What's you guys' opinion on these low end tires? Anyone ever had a set of these? How did you like them?

Nooooo!!
You will loose the comfort of driving a luxury car. The only brand I have ever tried on my DD was the Sunny tires; they were crap!
Personally, I will never let any of those brands touch my car. Try the S.Drives, they are cheap (in price) and are great tires all around.

+2 on the S Drives! Best bang for your buck.

I heard the Hankook v12's are good too. Priced pretty decent as well.

The Hankook Ventus V12s are good too. I have them on my summer wheels.

i got federals on my 240sx w/ coils and i will tell you that they are loud! great grip but IMO i wouldnt put them on my G. an extra 100-200 bucks on tires will not hurt in the long run..

thanks you guys. great to hear the opinions of more luxury car owners. will look into the hankooks and the yokos. people from these cheap wheel and tire package shops keep tellin me that these tires are the exact same as higher end tires.

The only reason they tell you that is because they tend to make more money out of cheaper brand tires. For the higher end tires, they make less money for themselves.

I like to use non name brand tires but the tire op has listed I would never use. Just awful tires that just don't hold up and wear fast.

If you want cheap tires that are decent, General Exclaim UHP are pretty good tires overall, I have them on my beater (Maxima) and I've been impressed with their longevity and their performance..

Same here, but I didn't think they were any louder than my exhaust. I think the suspension components made the most difference in noise levels... Heims are great for adj susp, but not comfort.

I feel like they have decent tire wear. Even with a DIY alignment that I know is not perfect, I'm not showing uneven wear, yet (~ 1.5 yrs and <8k miles)

That being said, I doubt I will run them on my G when it comes time to upgrade the wheels...
