I have never heard of this brand, Is it one of those "you get what you pay for" or is this a good deal??

Honestly...just my thoughts here...how can a company up tire warmers??? They are glorified heating blankets. For the price most people pay for them, I think I am gonna go to walmart and buy a handful of heating blankets and wrap em around my tires. Save myself a couple hundred bucks

It is easy to screw up a warmer. Falty wiring (cheap connections), cheap insulation material, and customer service. Most of these companies that build cheap warmers do not back up their product nor take care of you if you have issues. Suzuka & Chickenhawk both make great products and back them up with great customer service if their happens to be an issues.

still honestly....can anyone tell me that even the low end tire warmers dont have a 1000% markup...if someone wants to tell me that it seriously costs even a quarter of what they sell tire warmers for, to actually produce them, i got a $100 toothbrush for sale.

John,
How much are the ChickenHawks running these days? Do you sell the Suzukas as well?

I've got them...Fully adjustable temp...Takes about 45-60min for initial heat soak. Never a thought about if they work...they always do. Also...they're my first set of warmers so i have nothing to compare them too.
