I have heard of them but nothing about whether they are good or bad. I am guessing they were get the job done though haha, till you need or decide to go with something else.

I am still on the stock Perrrrreli's lol. Trying to decide with what to go with next. I am looking for a decent tread life but much better handling.

My dad's Astro Van had parts of the belt sticking out of his tires when he bought it from the dealer used. Last weekend one of his front tires blew out, then he put the spare on and after one minute the other front tire blows out. Talk about bad luck, no one should ever let their tires get that low, as it's a big safety hazard, and a big inconvience.

The lambo's were not too hard, I mean it was but overrall if you know alittle of what to do(my dad and I had no instructions) its not bad, just time consuming. Took a total of about 9hrs to do it. After you get one the second is obviously alot smoother and quicker. Its hard to really talk about it with having the car right here and a kit lol. The kit I got we had to do some modifying to the kit. You definitely need tools, it doesn't take much but having power tools and a grinder came in handy for us.
