Not all Michelin tires are made in the USA.


They have Plants all around the World. EVERY set I have purchased have been Made In USA.


I know we disagree occasionally [emoticon] But what in the world does this discussion have to do with you buying Michelin’s made in the US , you should be on your soapbox condemning anyone buying Michelin’s not made in the US , just like you do Sailun . The fact that Michelin is farming out their tires to other countries should be enough for you to stay away from Michelin . Can’t have your cake and eat it too.


I "PREFER" US Made items when at all possible. Where I don't like my money going is to a Communist Country that sure as HE!! is NOT our friend. UNDERSTAND???



You got the prefer right, but as usual you missed the point. How about that computer or I phone you have, but ya I know you prefer US made . I'm afraid its you that does not understand.

Turns out that the Wal-Mart tires centers in Tucson are all closed so I ordered the Michelins from Costco. I guess I need to support the French.

I was sold on them also however the quality went downhill. I switched to Timberlines and got the same comfort and about the same life but cheaper

^From tires to shoes??
I guess I see the connection since tires are shoes for your car...

Sweetlou, stop being a Karen....USA made Redwings haven't changed, maybe you're just working harder and wearing them out quicker in your golden years!

Yup, components made in China for Red Wing, also other shoes manufactured in China owned by Red Wing . Good luck getting anything that is not in some way connected to China . Red Wing is no exception .

Yep, I do, since I'm not made of money. Why talk like that is a bad thing?

The tone of Mr cummins comment is that he would rather buy American, if that were possible. It probably is possible, but it will cost. Nobody does that, well, most people anyway.

Just trying to be realistic, not bad.

I probably won't continue this as we're getting way off the subject.
