Has anyone here used Travelstar tires? They seem to get pretty good reviews and they are priced very aggressively. Just looking for real world reviews.

A product of Unicorn Tire Company! They gotta be good. FWIW, I just ordered a pair of Horizon Tire Co Antares Comfort A1 all seasons, so I'm kind of in the same boat.

They are cheapo tires from a company called Unicorn tire corp. Based in America but their tires they sell (like 6 no name brands) are made in various factories overseas.

Get what you pay for. They seem to be praised for making a cheap white wall tire for people to put on their 90s Cadillac.

Anteres are super popular in the stance car scene because they are like the cheapest tire that stretches super well.

How come you ordered those when you've been happy with the Walmart Douglas tires? Just curious, thanks.

For what ever reason I couldn't find a Douglas in the 225/65-16 our Nissan Quest uses. I would have went that route otherwise.

I'll say it-

For just several hundred dollars more you could buy Michelins......

Ordered a set for my Verano. $210 delivered for 4 235/45/18's is well worth the minimal investment.

The UN33s? I found them at Pepboys and they wanted $313 for a set in your size. So good deal you received.
