What'sup with Wanli tires?

Any reviews on them? How sticky are they? How's the sidewall? How's the handling? They're hella cheap, so I don't need info on how long they last.

Dont buy them. I bought my wheels used and they had Wanli tires on them and on the rear left tire the sidewall split all the way around the tire. the tire didnt blow and didnt leak air but it looked like it was about to pop. Dangerous! I have tried Nankang tires and they are a little better quality but they are not sticky. The best tires I ever owned were Toyo Proxes 4's. Super grippy. thats the tire i will go with when my coopers wear down.

Generaly speaking that's right, but if I take my Hercules for comparison, I paid 435$ for a X 205/40/17 including installation and they stick to pavement like glue. Of course the tread wear is crap, but oh well...

In tires for sure, cheapest isnt best. I have toyo proxes 4's and they are great. imo. Not to pricey either.

I've got wanli tires on my car right now, 215/40/17. I got them off ebay from a seller in NC and have had them on for about 6 months so far.

I actually "upgraded" to them from Toyo Proxes4. Believe it or not, I actually like them more than the Toyo's.

- They are a louder tire (than the proxes), but not that much louder. Barely noticable with windows closed.
-They grip in rain pretty well, I don't and haven't hydroplaned in the Oregon wet with them.
-Its just starting to get nicer here in oregon, so i should be able to test the stickiness of them in nice weather as it gets better out.
-Sidewall seems pretty stiff and holds up very well on cornering. I've got a basic coilover kit and front upper strut bar and can take the hell out of a corner.

Anything in particular your wanting to know about them? I'm very happy with them. I wouldn't think twice about getting another set once these wear out.
