    Or maybe SUV? I've had my coilovers on for around 4K miles and it's aligned so not an overcranked issue. They wear evenly, just fast. I could probably run them 5k longer than I do...then I'd be at 40k which isn't abnormal for a mud tire on a Suburban.

    Agreed! Trucks need 106 abd all in looking at is about 110.

    35-40k is average for MT unless really soft compound. 50k+ is exceptional IMO

    Ive never ran nankanga on a truck but i did run them on several cars i had and the stuck to the road like nothing else. I got about 50k miles out of them on my daily driver and about 3k out of them on my old drift car when i had it, which was pretty outstanding cause i was always spinning them.

    “Chinese-branded tires are a whole different world,” reported Car and Driver technical director Dave VanderWerp. “You absolutely get what you pay for, which, as we found in our test, is capability that is nothing short of scary. The Ling Longs in our test scored less than half the performance-based points than even the next-best, eighth-place tire. That’s how far they are off the pace.”

    there is a good reason Chinese tires are less expensive. 0% fucks given.

    theres some truth to that but don't forget they are paid for the ads in the mag. So they will help sell the brands they endorse.

    I wonder if they say the same thing about American tires in China? It would be interesting to see what they think is a good tire.
