Never heard of that brand either.

personally speaking I would avoid brands I have never heard of that are cheap as tyres are the only thing keeping you on the road especially with winter upon us. I would rather spend a bit more for something I can have some confidence in.

Well I can honestly say I've never hear for "three A tyre!" ive worked as a fitter all my working life, although to be far we do fit some cheaper brands for tyres we use Autogrip. I've had a full set on my mk2 Auto now for the last 12month, an it never let go, yes if I had the founds I would be fitting good years/ Pirelli's ect, but with a growing number of vehicles ive had to be realistic. but one thing  I can say it says in the listing B  for fuel and B for grip....... sorry Chinese tyre manufacturer you cant have both! one well always offset the other

Above is my post on a similar theme back in the summer, The tyres are very impressive 4 months on with no unusual wear, noise or defects. And on a very wet trip to Devon the other day they car was faultless so no complaints from me re cheap tyres. my advice do your research...
