    From memory they are pretty good.

    My mate had some on his Cav I think, lasted ages.

    Cant remember who makes them now, sure someone will tell you.

    Was one of the bigger companies, as most unknown names are made by big companies anyway.

    They are good if you don't want any grip in the wet or dry LOL, but they will last for ever because they are that hard.

    I used to use them for burn out tyres on a crap old Nova

    I've got Hankook tyres on mines and they seem pretty good in wet or dry
