Bought 2 Tigar tyres, comments?

I've managed to puncture one Uniroyal rain tyre I had at right front wheel, and its beyond repair cause it blew out on the side
So I bought 2 new ones for front wheels, my budget was tight so I guess this is a best buy for 50EUR each in my country...
What do you think? Website is not updated, it says this model is test one, if its not a trouble, visit http://www.tigartyres.com/ and choose punto 1.2 16v 6 speed sporting, it will filter a few, so make your pick, and tell me is mine OK in your imo

For those with cheaper tickets heres a preview

Re: Bought 2 Tigar tyres, comments?

there are alright for a while but i would upgrade when possible as they are somewhat lacking in grip if u have them on the front i think as i have curently although this is likely to change as the last owner clearly did not want to change them before getting rid of the car.

So youre sayin you have the same ones? I know this Tigar company is under Michelin and is exporting to Germany a lot...

I drove it for 10 miles only, so cant tell, but I have a feeling they are a bit harder than Uniroyal I had, and feels like they hold a direction better, dunno abbout skiddin', gonna try it tonight
Anyway, roads here are bumpy and holey so any tyre will die after some time, you just have to be lucky and carefull, no tyre will save you from Serbian roads

Oh man I wish good old times come back, when there was a metal wire on the side of the tyre, now they put it only on surface tyre steps on, and some sort of cloth or panel on the side
