Wanli Tyres?

Guys,
Ever heard of Wanli brand (cheap Chinese tyre). Great looking tread on the 245/45/17's.

Re: Wanli Tyres?

Got them on the rear of my XR.

Previous owner put them on there when got rego'd before selling.
Soon as it rains, hope you like ice skating.

Re: Wanli Tyres?

There's a lot more to it than the tread pattern...

Re: Wanli Tyres?

Yeah i never touch anything unkown brand and even some known brands. IMO tyres are the most important part of the car.

Re: Wanli Tyres?

Wanli - is short for "you WANt to LIeave them alone". had them on my V8 Forte, and as Steve said - ice skating can be fun, but is mostly dangerous!

Try Kumho Ecsta 712s or Hankook Ventus K104s (or K102s0. They are nearly as cheap as the Wanli's, but much better quality and performance. Not as good as G3s or SP3000/9000s, but they are half the price.

Re: Wanli Tyres?

i have them now. kinda grippy when new, after time and curing, shidhouse..

but they were cheap. ever heard of any other 235/45R17s being fitted for $145 each?

i only bought them because the cheapness helped me secure 17s.

Guy at tyre power said that the sp3000 are shit and that the Kumhos are the go.

Re: Wanli Tyres?

I've heard good things about these "el cheapo" Wanli's from the LS1 guys lately, a few of them have been using them for months at drag meets, tearing up the tarmac and the tyres are still hanging in there. Bit slippery in the wet but have been one of the most grippy street tyres for the strip

They have been using the Wanli S-1099.... http://www.rvmracing.com/product.asp?3=454

which is produced by Yokahama & is the same tyre as the Yokahama AVS sports.. http://www.yrc.co.jp/pr/html/2001/0102/0114E03.html

has anyone used this particular model of wanli...they are around the $250 mark each

Re: Wanli Tyres?

Nankang is a cheap brand to watch out for.......if you want tyres that wear out real quick then get them!!
as for tyre pattern as alot probably dont know the actual pattern is designed to let water into the grooves that travel the radius in the meat of the tyre not expel the water out the sides as most believe is the hole point of tread. the more radius grooves in a tyre the better it is in the wet. dont believe me? go talk to your tyre shop.
