Default Sunny TIres

Sunny Tires. Anybody heard of them. Nice professional looking site. Sunny Tire, USA
Good Looking Tire with decent load/wear specs. W speed rating "168MPH" fits like a glove.




onlinetire.com has these for $78 a piece @ 235-50-18.
The way I burn the shoes of my GXP feet. That price is hard to figure why not? Chunky directional grip and nice deep rain grooves.

They are made in China. I searched on 'sunny tires quality' and found a couple of blogs about others who have tried and tested them. They seem to be a fair tire and a good competition to the BFG KDW'*.

Ya I found the same. Alot of hisses by the opinionated crowd, and some good reviews by people that actually use them. Only factual negative I have found by someone who actually owned them was wear. But I expect that from inexpensive and excellent traction rating. gForces themselves are only 20k tires with heavy use. I already been through a set in 18k. I'm going to mull it over. $78 apeice iseems worth laying a pair on the pavement and seeing how they grip and handle.

I agree. I think the GXP Venom huffing would be a good test and worthy of a Bonneville Forum Consumer Report.

Not a bad looking tire. And the way you boil your tires, the price is great.

LOL I put the order in for four. I couldnt find any horror stories about the Brand separating or splitting in 2, so if they grip and last close to 20K, I'll be a happy camper.

Worse case scenario. Alloy wheels skid to a halt quicker than steel one when the tire shreds.
