Dear valued TEIN Distributors/Dealers,
Seeking Your Attention for and Assistance in Information Diffusion Regarding Low-Quality Imitation Products First, we would like to thank you for your continuous support to TEIN. As many of you might already be aware, lots of poor-quality low-down springs, imitating TEIN springs, are available on the market everywhere nowadays, at dirt-cheap prices.
Those fake springs may be affordable pricewise; however their performance and durability are far much less than satisfactory and such products pose serious threats to automotive aftermarket industry in various ways. Immediate and strong action against such counterfeit products needs to be taken. We have obtained one of those shoddy springs and compared with TEIN spring designed for the exact same vehicle model.
We have filmed the durability test scenes and made short movies in 4 different languages.
These are now available on our YouTube channel. We have tested both TEIN and imitation springs, under the same conditions and standards. After only 200,000+ strokes, the fake spring got broken.
This result shows that counterfeit springs lack durability, have no consideration for the safety and are extremely hazardous. On the other hand, TEIN spring showed absolutely no sign of abnormality. You can see that TEIN products meet the high quality standards to withstand various road conditions all over the
All TEIN products are put to the vast numbers of tests, for strength and durability. We assure you that you can promote and sell TEIN high-quality products with peace of mind that only those which passed all the tests go into the market.
