Looking to see if anyone here has experience with Kenda tires. They're pretty cheap so I am not sure what to expect. I am looking at them for our Impala. Let me hear it, thanks. Also, these tires will see their fair share of snow and rain.

looks like some of them have good reviews on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/ss/customer-reviews/B008BWNWAE/ref=/189-8279637-4729264?_encoding=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0#reviews-container?&sortBy=helpful&reviewerType=all_reviews&formatType=null&filterByStar=all_stars

Yea I saw that one, but that's for their mud tires. Hard to compare mud tires to p-metric car tires.

I have been looking all over the internet. Discount Tire Direct,Ebay, tire rack, etc. My brother has a tire machine so I have mount and balancing for free. I have found buying on the internet is a lot cheaper then any place in the area. Anyways I have been looking at others and came across these for a really good price. Just wondered if anybody knew anything about them.

Those are even cheaper, thanks. I might just stick with what I know.

When in doubt, this is your best/safest bet! What have you had good experiences with?

I've had decent experiences with Kenda bicycle tires. They're likely a step up from the no-name Chinese tires.

I have had good luck with Firestones and Generals, Goodyears and Coopers not so much. Goodyears always seem to wear funny and Coopers seem I wear out to fast. Should mention the car came with Uniroyals on it and they have been the worst tires I have seen. Wore super fast and are so loud it sounds like they're made of concrete.

A guy in the local jeep clubs runs Kenda mud tires. Had a few ones that had to go back for balancing issues buy after that it worked well.
