    Brands of Tires to Avoid at All Costs

    In recent years, many Chinese tire manufacturers have come under attack for making substandard and unsafe tires available for sale in the United States. Furthermore, some Chinese manufacturers have been the subject of forced recalls by many state Attorney Generals and the Federal Trade Commission. While there are many variations of Chinese import tires that have come under attack, companies that have been the subject of forced government recalls include:

    Westlake Tires
    AKS Tires
    Telluride tires
    Compass Tires

    All of these brands of cheap tires are made by the China-based Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Company; furthermore, it is alleged that these tires lack even the most basic of safety features such as gum strips which are a rubber feature that helps prevent steel belts inside the tire from separating or damaging the rubber.
  • ^Read the article mukha biased. Even the comments section dami nagtatalo hehehe. Kung nag banggit sana siya ng specifics like certification na di napasa netong tire manufacturer e mas may punch yun storya nya. Ang dating e parang hearsay lang e.
  • yung reputation of some China tires was tainted last 2007 pa. 2014 na naman ngayon, siguro naman they made changes already sa technology ng tires nila.

    Westlake, YKS and Compass tires purchased between 2002-2006 for trucks, SUVs and vans should be carefully examined for defects and reported to tire dealers

    Oregon Attorney General Hardy Myers today warned consumers about potentially dangerous tires manufactured between 2002 to 2006 for light trucks, sports utility vehicles (SUVs), and vans. The tires were made by Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co. Ltd. (HZ) in China and distributed in the United States under the names Westlake, YKS, and Compass.
  • malamang sa malamang yung mga nagawa nilang hindi tinanggap sa ibang bansa dito dinala satin
  • Mga sir, balak ko din bumili ng bagong gulong pero 2 gulong lang kaya ng budget ko. Saan ba importante ilagay ang dalawa, sa harap o likod?
  • ^ sa harap
  • Merong debate diyan.dati kasi sinasabi na ang mas bagong gulong dapat nasa harap for safety, ngayon may mga bagong articles na mas safe naman kung sa likod ang di sasabog or mas less likely na sasabog. Personally, sa harap ko pa din nilalagay yung bago pero ang reason lang ay dahil mas mabilis mapudpod ang harap pag FWD. para eventually magpantay ang wear ng lahat ng gulong.
  • Advice lang sa mga naka Lancer na manual transmission at lumusong sa baha nabasa ang transmission.

    Hwag park yun kotse overnight na naka engage ang kambyo. Kakapit ang clutch disc at hirap tangalin.

    Although may technique tangalin na hindi ibaba ang transmission.
  • May nabasa akong articles na mas mabuti kung ilagay muna sa likod yung bagong tires (if 1 pair) kasi may risk of hydroplaning - na experience ko ito nung bumili ako ng Maxxis, madulas pa masyado kaya yung luma muna nilagay ko sah arap. Then after a few weeks bumili ulit ako isang pair, yung nasa likod na ang nasa harap ko.
  • given na there are articles that say put new tires in front while other say put new tires in rear, then i think negligible na kung saan mo gusto ilagay. the important thing is that above minimum pa ang thread level ng old tires para iwas hyrdoplaning. at sympre, drive slowly and carefully on wet roads.

    New tires (Front) + Old Tires but good Thread Level (Rear) = OK
    Old Tires but good Thread Level (Front) + New Tires (Rear) = OK

    ibang usapan na lang if nagkakarera ka on wet roads.
  • Sa mga mag-nlex ngayon ingat kayo at may parts na baha like bago mag Petron Marilao pag galing ng Balintawak, may baha at kapag matulin takbo nyo di nyo agad maiiwasan yun baka maaksidente kayo. Stay safe guys!
  • ako pag 1 pair new tire sa harap ko pinilalagay... kasi front brake/wheel drive auto ko para makayod nya agad yung new tire...

  • ^^

    ang palagi kong naririnig na advise sa likod daw dapat ilagay yung bagong gulong regardless kung fwd/rwd/awd yan
  • dami ang mababahang sasakyan ngayon
  • pag rear wheel drive, sa harap ang bagong gulong, dahil pure steering control ang front tires, power. is transmitted more effectively when the tires are new... pag front wheel drive sa likod daw ang bagong gulong....... safety sake, mas higher ang grip ng bagong gulong..... so mas in control ang rear eng ng kotse mo.

    mas madaling icontrol ang FWD na kotse kung behaved ang rear end mo parati.

    for AWD, dunno...... di pa ako naka drive ng AWD, e....
  • mga boss nag fail saglit ung powersteering ko. nanigas manibela mahirap isteer after ilusong sa baha. may dapat ba ako icheck?
  • Paktay kung electric power steereing ka. Ano kotse mo bro? Kung hydraulic power steering, baka nabasa fan belt at dumulas, kaya bumagal ikot ng pump.
