I don't think they are available any more. I purchased a set in 1995 and did not put many miles on them. They are still on the car and look as good as the day I put them on. I have driven the car a few miles each day the last eight years and they still show very little tread wear.

Insa is gone I had them on my CCPU they looked good held air but terrible handling. I put new Firestones and what a difference!

They were built in Argentina

My INSA tires were made in Chile. Good wear, not a good ride.

I bought a set in 93, they are good tires. mine show little if any wear. the little new tire nubs wore off but that is about it . Mine ride good , If they were still available I would probably buy another set. The tread pattern is kinda strange, some have said that it was the original tread pattern but I'm not sure about that .

I have 4 on my sport coupe. They're doing ok. but when they wear out I'll change to some Goodyears because they're better looking.
