Vee Rubber tires

I have been seeing these Vee Rubber VRM 193 tires for sale dirt cheap ($124 a set.). Does anyone have any experienece with them? I have not been able to find any reviews anywhere. The are advertised as 90/10 tires. I know that usually cheap stuff is cheap for quality reasons but sometimes it happens when a product is new to a certain market.

Why not try a set and do a report on them so the rest of us will get an idea of how good they are.
Someone has to be the first to try them.

Or buy a set of Kenda 761's for less than $100 a set and enjoy a proven tire that performs very well (and happens to be cheap)..
