Wait a bit bro. People will be selling off stuff this winter. Better to buy something good then buy something cheap and then have to buy new stuff after it up.

I wouldn't let those things anywhere close to my tires.

Pit-eck = trash.


Save up a bit and get quality stuff the first time.

Just because something is manufactured in the same factory doesn't mean the same parts are used nor the same quality applied.

FYI, Chickenhawks are built in Red Hook, New York. Chickenhawk distributes Suzuka now and has upgraded the warmers for 2009.

+1

Powerstands racing makes digital, adjustable temp tire warmers for ~$300 a set, I've been using them for about 6mo now and have not a single complaint.

These tire warmers, what do they do? They sound neat-o. I'd like to order up 6 or 8 of them.
