Atturo tires?

Anyone heard of these? Looking for new tires for my 2008 . . . punctured sidewall on the OEM runflats and they're at about 40% tread left anyway.

Here they are on TiresDirect: http://ssl.delti.com/cgi-bin/rshop.p...ort=P&dsco=135

They look pretty bada$$ plus CHEEEAAAAP . . . $168 for 315's in the rear and $166 for 275's in the front. 4 new tires for under $800!!

The only thing that concerns me is the price, plus the fact I can't find any reviews out there. They are a pretty new company I think?

Never heard of them....which doesn't mean they are bad....went through that site and it looks to be pretty good for prices. Just make sure you get the warranty with them if something goes wrong.

Never heard of this brand, but they almost look like the Toyo Proxe ST II's I bought months ago. These Toyos can be found online for about 700 shipped to your door. They don't look bad and have the same tread depth and ratings as the Toyos as well. Hmmmmm.... Who knows they could be a Knock off man. Personally i would stick with a name brand tire that has been on the market for a while and not a no brand name tire. Good Luck!

Heard to much bad stuff about Online Tires, just read reviews about them. I will stick with a known Tire shop and pay the money then trying to save a few bucks anf get crappy service.

I don't see what the difference makes on WHERE you buy them (onlinetires.com vs tirerack vs my neighborhood tire shop), they all sell the same manufacturer, what's the difference?

Well I was goning to buy my Toyos thru Tread Depot and then checked with Discount tire and they were able to match them. So either way I was going to have to pay a place to mount the tires anyway, plus knowing that they did not sell you the tires they will try to give you a higher price when installing someone elses tires. It all works out in the end, just be sure of the tires that you want and that you have the corrector diameter or else your PCM will seee the difference and all sorts of weird stuff will be happening to your Jeep.

"Manufactured by Federal Tire Corp. in Taiwan and modeled after the Federal Couragia line, the private brand tire is “Obama-tax free,” according to Mathis. It competes against similar Kumho, Hankook, Nexen and Falken brand products."

Hmmm, might be a "diamond in the rough", pricing is almost worth trying, as long as you have some backing for the product!

Soldmt srt8, I have a d1sc kit for sale, r1 slotted/drilled cryo'd rotors and ceramic pads, and a snow performance stg III. Pm if interested.
