I have no idea where the tires were made. I've had trouble with them over a very long period of time. I experienced a blowout on an OEM Top Touring in 2005, a blowout on the other OEM Top Touring between 2005 and 2008, the series of blowouts on the Touring Contacts in 2008 and this failure is from 2011. I have no idea where any of the tires was made nor do I feel it really matters, at least to me. Seven failures in as many years is way too many for me to trust the brand anymore.
