FWIW, Sumitomo makes a good tire.

At least they're NOT Chinese!!!

Being a Brit and the fact one Dunlop factory was but two miles from my Grandparents house in Walton Liverpool, I thank you for that. thumb

Don't know, but back in the day they had a factory in Akron.
On a different note about Akron, Summit Racing's HQ.
Go figure.

I believe Sumitomo also makes Falken in addition to Dunlop.  I was looking to replace the worn Pirelli Scorpion OEM tires on my wife's Lincoln Navigator.  I could not get past the reasonable price and high ratings of the Sumitomo Encounter tire for that vehicle's 20" alloy wheels.  Then I realized the previous owner had installed Sumitomo tires onto my Ferrari Mondial and that sealed the deal for me (they are great on that car).  They are huge but it's a manufacturer that seems to fly under the radar in the US.
