    Wanli? You're kidding, right? Spanish Truck tyres, made out of melted down shopping bags.

    Federal are an OK budget tyre, in the league of Hankook or Kumho.

    got them on the front of mine (needed some cheepy fast and they were the only things i could get hold of) not to bad for budget tyre, I used to have Nankang NS-2s found these good in the dry but poor in the wet and the federals seem better in the wet but not as good in the dry. My personal budget choice would be to go for Nankangs as i dont drive quick in the wet any way.
