Default Why You Should Not Buy a Shiny Chinese Radiator

I sent my radiators to Mylers to be rebuilt and painted. I got them back yesterday. Previously, I had thought about buying some Chinese made radiators off an auction site. After, I saw this video today, I am glad that I sent them to Mylers. Skip to minute, 5.01. Enjoy.

OK, so I guess it's safe to say that we should STAY AWAY from their $30 rotors that they sale ?

I mounted a pair of Chinese radiators on my '05 300 and they have performed well, less than $100, larger volume, and have survived multiple drops. Right hand side looks like a potato chip and still no leaks...

I'm running a $30 wu-tang front rotor for the last 4 years and still going strong.

I think it's good to go to a usa company like mylers.. but I know that some chinese radiator companies are usa companies but source from china. The problems on the vid might no be related the same way. I bought a set for my honda and ended up selling my honda befor putting them on.. but they looked nice and looked quality..I think there are companies like winners and GPI with chinese radiators.. I've heard rumours of fitment issues but not seen any so far.

That is great that you haven't had issues. I saw that Moose was selling radiators and does anyone if the Moose radiators are made in China?

Mine work great from GPI. No complaints. I think this happens but is not necessarily the norm.
