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.
Yeah I still barley have confidence in the tires made in Germany. They would most likely state that in pretty big and bold type face. You have any tires you like currently? I'm trying to nail down 700c tires for touring/off-road (CX) and urban riding. Something that is no less than 28mm tire.
