Cheap Chinese tires

Got a chance to catch up online with a local TV news report I missed on "tires to avoid." It was a summary of a Consumer Reports finding: "Cheap Chinese Tires No Bargain." ... 70011.html

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. that some of these may be counterfeit is scary. Not to mention that in the event of defects, heaven knows if those off-brand rubber companies would issue a recall. 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.
Any action for which there is no logical explanation will be deemed "company policy."
