That's why they are so quiet, fuel efficient and have great road manners.

Tradeoffs...

They're quiet on the road and I've never been stuck in mud, sand, or snow.
Where are they made ?

Michelin is a French owned company but have manufacturing in many countries, tires bought in US come either from US, Canada, or Mexico. With that said, I just checked my right front and it was made in Thailand! So, I guess they could come from any of their factories!

Buyers in the US have reported manufacturing origin in a bunch of different places. They have a dozen or so plants.

Some have received US built tires (Ny I think), Japan, Thailand and China.

So, I guess the answer is, it depends. I am not sure if you can strategically source them or not.
