USA made tires
« on: May 01, 2021, 05:43:46 PM »
I had ordered new tires through Walmart.com for $105/tire compared to the shop across the parking lot which was $190/tire for the same exact tire. The 3rd party tire company sent 20" tires instead of the 16" I ordered and paid for. I told them I needed tires today so they showed me an all terrain tire that is made in the USA and was $3/tire cheaper. They immediately refunded me the money spent on the wrong size tires and put the 4 new tires on after a delay.

I ended up out the door for $543 for 4 tires, installation, road hazard warranty and lifetime balancing and flat repair. The tires are Dextoro brand made in So. Carolina by Giti in a new state of the art plant built in 2017. The truck drives great on the new tires and feels good and have a 50,000 mile warranty. The tread design should do fine on the dirt roads behind the house.

Sweet i`ll keep that info handy.
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

Doesn't appear that the 18s are made in USA.

The F250 is gonna need new tires soon. I was looking at the Cooper Discoverers but found out they've been bought out by Goodyear. I'd rather not support such a woke company. I guess this years tire purchases may be foreign.

Geez I'm in the same boat so often these days. And not only with car tires. Avoiding woke, liberal, Trump-bashing, anti-conservative companies and trying to stay stateside is a real challenge these days.

They have USA made in my size. They also look very similar to the hankook atm that I have on now and have been pleased with. Can't remember if they were USA made or foreign.  Believe they were made in korea
