A friend ran Champiro tyres on his TDI Jetta. He liked them, but then again for his A4 he picked up Michelin Pilot HX for summer and Blizzak WS60 for winter so he knows sweet fuk all about skins.

Though they did seem to grip pretty well.

If you're running them for only one season, why not?

Good cheap Chinese tire. A little noisy but great adhesion

if you want a good cheap tire, check out nankang ns1's. i have them on my car, real quiet, good grip. cheap as dirt

those are the other ones i was looking at, and i think the difference in price is like 6 bucks if i get them on ebay too. which brings about this question... which is better?

Discount tire direct on ebay is a great cheap site. Onemoremile recommended that site to me. http://search.stores.ebay.com/Discount-Tire-Direct-Auctions_tires_W0QQftsZ1QQsaselZ8052644QQsatitleZt iresQQsofpZ0
