I've tried to tell people this before, but everyone still insists these are Chinese tires... Not!


Same with those who swear Kumho is a Korean (or even Japanese) tire.. again, NOT!

I read somewhere years ago that you can tell the country of origin of any product by the bar code.

Not sure of those brands, but my Cooper tires say "Made in the USA" ........ Doesn't by any means say they are better,,, just saying I would think somewhere, (bar code or whatever) you could figure out the Country of Origin...

Actually Kuhmo tires are Korean and manufactured in:
The Kumho Tire company has several factories around the world. There are four factories in China, three in Korea, one in Vietnam and one in the United States. The factory in the United States is located in Georgia.

The plant of manufacture for the tire has no strict relationship to the nationality of the company that distributes and sells it.

Most tire companies get their tires made in various places, depending on model and size. They may or may not own the factory itself, but they specify the construction of the tire, enforce quality control, and stand behind the tire after it is sold. Did you know that Michelin has some tire models manufactured in factories in China too? Does that make it a bad tire?

To each his own... I won't (knowingly) buy a tire made in China.

I appreciate this thread. Some good info links.

That's why it cost me more than $1000 when a Michelin tire destroyed the right rear bed of my truck... Twice.

I'm not a Michelin fan either - there are none on my car or coach. But they are a reputable, "first tier", tire manufacturer with plants all over the world. Including China.
