Where are auto-grip tires made?

Tire list "Made in Germany" Please participate! No tire discussion.

Since the origin of all kinds of tires is a long-running issue here in the forum and the wildest speculations can be read all the time, I thought you could take a look at where they actually come from. I've found the "Made in ..." label on every tire so far. It has to be encrypted via DOT anyway.

Some manufacturers like Conti are very clever: on the front it says "ENGINEERED in Germany" and on the back it says "Made in ...". Actually never in Germany, as Conti produces almost exclusively in low-wage countries, but receives premium prices.

It looks different with actually foreign corporations. Michelin, the Goodyear Group with the brands Dunlop, Fulda and Pneumant, as well as Pirellli produce a lot in Germany and also have many plants here.

So I'll start now and list tires that I have looked at in my environment at home. It is important that the tires, let's say, are not older than 5 years.

-Fulda Cristall Montero 2, 175/70 R14 84T: Made in Germany

-Conti Winter Contact TS 830, 195/65 R15: Made in Chech Republic

I think the idea is very good, especially since I already have access to empirical values ​​in another forum.

Unfortunately, there is seldom only one production site for a tire and for this reason it is only a transfer of experience but not a guarantee of Made in Germany.

greeting

P.S .:

I will post my values ​​soon.

It is true that the same type of tire is often produced in different plants. However, a certain tire in a certain size that is intended for the German market has usually always come from a factory.

I could at least ask about that at Goodyear-Dunlop-Fulda. Specifically, it was about finding out where summer tires for my Mercedes Coupe are made. Dunlop informed me that the P9000 and the P 01 in 255/45 R16 are being produced for the German market at the Haunau plant. The Fulda at the Fulda plant ...

Unfortunately, the tread will become totally confusing at some point.

Some factories have a production mix of over 100 different ones
