The last thing you want are "bust" tyres.

Nothing wrong with that if you're only intending on driving sensibly.

Especially when they probably haven't the faintest idea that "General UHP
and Toyo AT" are "quality" tyres, because, like me, they've never heard of
them either! (Perhaps things are different if you move in the 4x4 world).

Quite simply, because those "safe handling limits" are ridiculously,
dangerously low on many cheap tyres.

Not only is there no margin for error or for dealing with an emergency,
but cheap tyres are usually considerably harsher riding, louder, and
cause the car to use more fuel.

They're also frequently no cheaper in cost per mile.
