Why are so many tires made in India & Thailand?!?
I’m a/was a ginger as well.

As the U.S. started putting tariffs on Chinese tires manyyears ago because the Chinese-made tires were being dumped into the U.S. at artificially low price, Chinese companies started looking for other countries to produce them. Thailand is a natural source of rubber, so many of the tires coming out of Thailand are just the same Chinese tires with the manufacturing shifted to a nearby site. China’s largest tire producer, Hagzhou Zhongce Rubber (world's 10th largest tire producer), has built a new facility in Thailand, as have Linglong Tire and Double Coin.
Put me in the column where I'm only putting major brand tires on my vehicles. Goodyear, Continental, Bridgestone, Pirelli, General, Goodrich, etc (not in any particular order).
Nitto is made in the USA.I put them on the Burb. They came highly recommended and I'm very happy with them.
Thats good to know. they are on the top of the list for rear tires on the camaro. very few choices when it comes to 315/35/17's. Not cheap either.

That's what I use and am very happy with their prices and service.
Every vehicle I own has either Goodyear or BF Goodrich tires, and they have not disappointed me.
I figure Oriental tires are for Oriental cars.
I never had luck with any Goodyear Tire other than the 37” MTRs I had on my last Ram.
Same for General & Firestone.
Had Falken Open Country on the ‘05 Tahoe, good tire, smelled like cow manure for a few months.
