I'm reminded of a discussion here where member Iceni John mentioned a tour bus with tires he called "Hu Flung Dung
But seriously, folks, that finding by Consum. Rep

I visited the Omaha Police impound auction a couple months back and they had a wrecked Ford F-series that had Sailun tires, one of which was torn up. Not known if tire failure caused the wreck, or if the wreck ruined the tire.
