    I would like to know if tires made in Thailand are as bad as tires made in China. Does anyone have thoughts on this subject?

    I guess I should pay a bit more and get a tire made in Europe, Japan, Korea or the USA.

    Does anyone have a favorite or a trusted tire brand?

    Avoid tire brands that you can't pronounce their names.

    They don't make tires in Ireland ;)

    Don't buy cheap tires, they are the only thing holding you to the ground at 60MPH
    Nothing south of Kumho for tire pricing
