I needed a new rear tire for my 20x10 wheels. I had a set of Bridgestone RE960s on it. Tire rack has my size 275/30/20 on closeout for $303 each. To me that was a little higher than what I wanted to pay for a tire. So I did some searching and came across this tire (Delinte Thunder D7). I was skeptical at first about getting a non major brand tire and on top of that it was $90/$114 with shipping. So I pondered with it and pulled the trigger. I haven't mounted it yet but it appears to be a bit wider than the Bridgestone and has more side wall and rim protection (which I prefer). It's has a 320 treadwear compared to 400 for the Bridgestone. Once I get it mounted and put miles on it I will post pics and give my review. Hoping this can be a good quality and cheaper alternative to some other tires.

Got the tire mounted today. The Delinte is more squared compared to the Bridgestone being rounded (has a stretched look). My wheel gap is filled a bit more with this tire. So far the only thing I don't like about the tire are the "nipples" on the sidewall.

I got some comparison pics, and look beyond my dirty car. Rain and pollen won the battle

I am considering picking up a set of these for the rear. How is the tire holding up so far? How is the dry traction?

I forgot I created this post, lol. Since this post I've put on about 7000 miles and the tires. The grip is better than goodyears and as far as traction goes they hold pretty good. If I go from a dead stop there is little tire squeal. I'm pleased with the tire so far and I would purchase again whenever the time comes.

Here are a couple pics:
The 1st pic the closest tire and last tire are the Delintes

2nd pic is 275 Delinte next to a 245 Bridgestone

I will most likely try these tires out. I know a lot of people are all about the high end tires but I have had pretty good luck with my 150$ per tire Nankangs and they hook up 100% at the track and fairly well on the street also. Only downside is that they are loud on the highway.

I have the tires off now, getting another set. Shortly after my last post I hit the track a few times, traveled from Memphis to Atlanta then back to Memphis. Also from Memphis to Dallas and back. So I put a lot of miles on them and wore them down pretty quickly but they held decently for the price.

We have had some good reviews from our customers on those tires as well! For a bargain brand tire, its tough to beat.
Were you referring to the delnites or the nankangs?

More so the Delintes as we have used them often. I dont have a lot of feedback on the Nankangs, but we do get asked about them often. We have great pricing in them so they are tough to pass up.

We certainly DO sell tires we just dont have all the companies broken down on the site because of how many brands and sizes! Let me know what your looking for and I will happily get you pricing! I have done numerous wheel/tire packages with TPMS for members here! I suppose we should make it more apparent on the site!!
