Vee Rubbers (Tires you Idiots)

Has anyone got any experience with this brand?

They are for sale on eBay, but all I can find is that they seem to be made in Thailand and the price is right.

when it comes to tires, i do not skimp...tires are one of the most important safety features you are ever going to buy...i tend to let somebody else do the proving...
quality/well known tires are a bit of added peace of mind. they are not something you buy everyday, so over the life of a quality tire, just how much more does it cost you daily?

+1. Never skimp on the safety parts.

Jim I don't think it's too big of a deal for mini bikes, but I remember reading somewhere about those vee slicks having quality control issues. I ran the last two seasons on a $50 set of Bridgestone take offs from Hutchison. He's out of them right now but check with him after the first cmra race in a couple of weeks.

And by the time you get those tires mounted yours pretty close to the $270 for a new set of stones or pirellis.

Point taken.

No need to be sliding on the asphalt due to cheap tires. I can do that through my technique without any assistance.

I'll find some newish name brand hoops and pay through the nose to have them mounted.

Thanks for the feedback.
