Anyone try these cheap Cosmo tires?

How bad can they be? General reviews seem good.

Thanks. Good info. I see Cosmo has been rebranded in 2017. Might be worth a try for an RFT all season test.

One site stated the Cosmo Mucho Machos were run flats but I donít see that description repeated. I was wrong.

Not looking for a price point. I just hadnít heard of these before and one site listed them as run flat which they are not. Iíll continue to evaluate my options. I donít want this to become another tire switch thread. I was searching for all brands of ďall-seasonĒ tires and these popped up. I canít find a performance review from a reputable source for the Cosmos.
