    Do Chinese make tires? Do they sell them in the U.S.? I would never put that on my cars (no offense), but I've heard someone saying that their are Chinese brand tires in the U.S..... I've never seen them.

    Why would a chinese tyre be so bad if they made a good one? I know there not chinese but i use a Korean tyre called Khumo, they have been race proven and i diched the P7 rossos that i always used for the better Khumos, which lasts alot longer and are just as grippy and have a good look.

    You can bet they will. And you can bet you'll buy it. Just like you buy everything else from China, from furniture to toys to electronics.

    I bought a set of Nankang's for my Twin Turbo a while back. They were a performance tire that resembled Pirelli P7000's tread, also made in China.

    It all comes down to the bottom line.

    Auto tires, tractor, heavy equipment, wheelchair, if its a tire, chances are its made in China or will soon be made in China

    China: Tiremakers are capitalizing, but economic revolution has issues
