Question Samson Tires

I've seen everywhere, IRV2, and many many other internet sites that Samson Tires are made in China. To be sure, at least as best I can, I checked the NHTSA.gov site and here is where they place Samson Tire location.
NewTire RecID Name DOT City State Country

Can anyone verify this. I'm not saying anything about quality, or anything else, just tired of seeing misinformation on the internet.

Now, I find this. Go figure...........

Guizhou Tyre Corp. has joined a growing list of Chinese radial medium truck tire manufacturers with products receiving verification for the EPA SmartWay program.

The tiremaker's all-position Samson GL283A LET and Advance GL283A LET both earned EPA approval.

The tires are both available in sizes 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 285/75R22.5, 395/75R22.5, 275/70R22.5, 255/70R22.5, 265/70R19.5, 245/70R19.5, 235/75R17.5, 225/70R19.5, 8R19.5 and 215/75R17.5.

I believe you will ultimately find that Samson Tire is a private label, US distribution company and they get their tires from various tire manufacturing plants. One size/model might be made in a Chinese or Taiwanese plant, another in a Malysian plant, etc. Perhaps the ownership of the Samson company is in Israel, though.

Samson started out as a strictly American tire manufacturer based in California, but that was long ago and the brand has been sold and the California factory is long gone.
