Default Do not buy these wheels/tyres

I liked the look of these wheels/tyres and bought them. Big mistake!! They are a SACK of *****. Great Looks, Crap Grip, Crap Steering, Crap Chrome and Crap Quality. I paid £48, that roughly $88. They spin on the spot on tarmac, loose grit, dirt tracks and slow the car down on grass. On loose dirt or tarmac the car will not drive in a straight line. As you start to accelerate the car will do a complete 360 degree turn. Complete and utter RUBBISH, RUBBISH, RUBBISH! Oh and RUBBISH, after all I did buy 4 of them.

if you ran in loose dirt and gravel, that took the sticky part of the tire out and now you wont have any traction.

Sounds like you have setup issues, either clutch tuning or Allignment....ANY tire should be able to grip on th eroad unless it's made of plastic...
