Lionhart tires

I donít believe this a tire I will choose but it has me curious. The lionhart LH FIVE
Did some research on them and they donít seem all that bad.
Anyone ever give them a shot?
I used Bridgestone os4 on my Corvette with a fairly aggressive street alignment as the car was pulling double duty as my DD and autocross car on the weekends. The Camaro will be the same. Tires just donít last long for me no matter what the tread wear rating

These aren't Nankangs. Nangkangs are legit autocross and track tires. Lionhart is junk sold as a budget tire by Discount Tire and other outlets. Don't do this!

So you have experience with them? just looking for opinions from someone that has actually tried them. You never know until you ask.

I've worn thru 6 sets of Nankang CR-S(CR-1) tires. Very good tire. Near Yok A052 at autocross. Does well on the street too. No issues with them in the rain(what little we get in SoCal). Nankang is a respected brand from Taiwan. Outside of the USA they work closely (share technology) with Yokohama on street and commercial tires. The NS-2R that's spec for the corvette series is their old 200tw tire that was used by a lot of drifters. And while the tires do tend to be less expensive than Yokohama/Falken/Bridgestone, they aren't cheap(construction and materials) like the Lionhart you posted.

I’m not comparing the nankang tires to the lionhart. My point was I have never heard if either brand. Yes I know they are cheap. And probably not going with them. Just curious ti see if anyone has ever used them. No one likes them but have not found anyone with first hand experience with them either

Where do you get your Nankangs in 1LE sizes?
