Where they are made has no effect on them. They are just Cheap tires. Most other companies also make tires there of equal quality they have if they are made here or Europe.

Many people do not realize even tires like the Pirellis on the Camaro are made in Brazil as it is cheaper to make.

The Hankooks are junk just because they are cheap Hankooks.

Most OE tires are now made outside the country as they are often older models tires or cheaper brands as OE mfg. do not want to pay anything for the tires. Many MFG have left the market as they do not like the reputation of poor cheap tires in the public hands and not make any money on top of it. This is why companies like Hankook and Pirelli are now in the market that were not a part of before.

Note even the Michelins often are older model tires and not the best they sell. Goodyear has pretty much left the market unless they can make money on a higher end car or special needs car like the ZL1 or Volt where the MFG will pay more for the tires to get what they offer. It is said the Goodyears on the Volt have good grip but the Fuel max adds miles to the electric charge. GM and Toyota are willing to pay extra.

18"  Michelin Lattitude.  22,000 miles and seems hardly worn. Good in light snow and heavy rain storms at interstate speeds.  Keep 38-40 PSI Cold.  Expensive tire, but if these last to 60,000...I will buy the same.  notworthy
I put 63,000 on a set of those in Phoenix. Replaced with the same. Great tires.

There is a real good chance the Michelin Latitude will be the tire that replaces the Hankook Hockey Pucks on our Terrain.

Might check as I am sure there is even a better Michelin offered if you want to stay with that brand. Warning all are over priced. My Old crappy Pilots were almost $200 on my Chevy.

I recently had an Equinox as a loaner while my Terrain was in for service.  I immediately noticed the ride was a lot smoother and quieter with the Nox, it had the Michelins on it, however I also noticed it had a more loose suspension and much more of a minivan sort of feel to it while driving compared to my Terrain.  I have the Firestones on the Terrain, which certainly deliver a more rugged driving experience.  I find the Firestones great in the rain, however in the snow I found they will let you go...but won't let you stop.  I'm figuring a set of Blizzaks coming on in November.

My Michelin's have quite possibly been the best factory tire I've ever had on a car.  The last 2 or 3 new cars I've bought had Hankooks on them, and those were absolute GARBAGE!

Sounds encouraging!  Worth the price it sounds like!

Wow - you are even older than me - or else you started driving at a negative age.  Congratulations on your continued longevity.  Many more years to you !

Like I said.... the Firestones certainly have a more "rugged" feeling!  They are great on wet pavement though... I've never had a hydroplaning feeling, and the truck corners the off-ramps at a good jaunt nooooo problem.... granted I think the AWD also helps compensate when hitting mini lakes like those on most Toronto streets during a downpour.  I've got just over 22,000 miles on these Firestones and they show no real signs of wear... however I do mostly highway trips.  Curious to see how long I get out of them.

Now at the HHR web site the OE Firestones are one of the most hated tires ever. The best upgrade for any HHR is to dump the Stones.

To be fair they are an old design and a cheap tire but they do more damage to Firestone than good.

Just noticed that they now offer BFG Long Trails in size 235/55/18.  This is a new size as they never were available before.  I will be getting these for my next tires.

I've had 2 sets of them on my wife's Highlander and they are bar far the BEST tires I've ever had on any vehicle in my entire life.  A+ in all categories including tread wear, noise, and handling.  The only thing I can't comment on is snow/ice traction since I live in California.  But I've read some reviews saying that they perform well.

Only negative is that they are $175.00 each out here, but still cheaper than the OEM Michelin Latitudes.  I firmly believe that you get what you pay for when it comes to tires.

  Michelin Summer tires on aftermarket aluminum rims. Michelin tires with the snowflake and mountain symbol on the factory rims for winter. AS tires are a cruel joke making drivers believe they have winter traction.

The 2012 Nox i bought here in Alaska last week had Michelin Latitude Tourings on it, very good tire and did well on light ice and snow.
Then I bought a set of Bridgestone Blizzak DM V1 17" tires two days ago, great tire in the deeper snow.
