I noticed at American tire centers they handle some of the overseas tire brands. Nanking has a 195/50/16 in a Z rated performance radial tire. Any of you have any experience with the overseas tire brands. The salesman claimed it was a damn good tire. $100.00 each mounted and balanced. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Adios Amigos

$100 Each?? Damn, thats a fairly pricey tire....even if it is mounted and balanced.

First things first. its the wrong size. a 205/50 16 will be a much closer match to the stock 195/55 16. The tire he is selling you will have a smaller circumference.

Nanking is really an off brand. I'd be weary of spending that kind of money on a tire I know nothing about. Stick with the major brands that have an established reputation. You can get some darn good tires in the 80-100 dollar range.

Shop around. It sounds like this guy may not be giving you the best deal. He certainly doesn't know what size tire is appropriate for the car.

Nanking was a story about a rape in Chinese history... Bizarre. no?
