I know we have many members in Oz and EU. Goform is unknown in the US where I am. I need 4 new tires on my 09 TDI and have seen Goform GH18 on Ebay for $400 for a set of four. That in 275/45 19. But...I worry they'll explode or something. I've seen some good reviews on Yahoo and some random tire rating sites, and I've looked at their cruddy Chinese website. Goform has been around about 10 years in the tire business and if some had managed to get killed on them, I like to think I'd find that in Google.

Any ideas out there?

We seem to have two forums for tires, so posting this here as well.

Never heard of them.

I doubt they'll kill you but they have crap fuel economy and wet weather test ratings and a middle range noise ratio as in E, E [where A is top and F is bottom] and 70db [where 67 is low and 74 is high] on European Union testing.

Bear in mind that the tyre/tire companies are allowed to do their own tests to the set standards so, in my personal view, tend to be a tad optimistic!

Pay a bit more and get a known product.

EDIT: Having just looked for your size on Tirerack I can see why $100 a tyre is attractive!
