I am often challenged by customers to provide country of origin information on their tire of interest. I say challenged because, well, it can be challenging. While Tire Rack makes every effort to track this information, all of the major tire manufacturers take the view that we are in a global economy. As such, we have found the same tire in the same size can move around from various production facilities.

Although regularly updated, the country of origin for any tire may vary from the country shown on our site. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate requests for tires with a specific country of origin. You can view country of origin information under the "Specs" tab of each tire. For example, you can view the information for the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position here. Another example can be found with the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology.
