What Tires Are Made in the USA

What Tires Are Made in the USA

If you’re looking to Buy American, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve decided to compile a complete list of every tire manufacturer that makes its tires in America. This way you’ll know exactly which tires are made in the USA.

And while it would be MUCH too big a list to write down every single type of tire that’s made in the USA, we can show you how to find out for yourself – easily.

Well, sort of easily.

The only way to truly know is to look at the tire itself. The reason is that every tire comes stamped with a code on the sidewall. Just look for the DOT stamp and then look for the next letters. Those letters are a code for the factory that the tire is made in.

For an example, if the DOT number starts with BE, then it’s a BF Goodrich tire that was manufactured at the Michelin plant in Tuscaloosa, AL.

Below is a list of tire manufacturers that make their products in the USA, as well as the factory location and the factory code. Using this list you’ll be able to decipher any DOT number on passenger car tires.

Some stand-out brands for Made-in-America tires are BF Goodrich, Cooper Tires, Bridgestone, Firestone and Goodyear,

It’s also important to note that all of these are union plants.

  1. This information was very helpful, especially with all the events happening in the international world. All companies with manufacturing facilities in the USA, need to promote their products as made in the USA, on a regular basis. Thank you.

  2. Trump just dead to boycott Goodyear tires, is this the person we need in the white house .what happened to buy America .I don’t thank so.

    1. Goodyear has plants all around the world including China. He said to boycott because they are censoring free speech. For example you can wear something about blm but not about blue lives matter. I agree I try to buy products that are American made all the time.

    2. Dan, I’m guessing that you went to a ‘liberal’ public school system where ‘English 101’ (Or *any* English classes) were strictly forbidden.
      2+2=5, right? LOL!

    3. Yes. He is exactly what we need. Goodyear’s management has just been outed as the Marxists Leftie loons they truly are

    4. Damn right he is the person we need in the white house!!! There are other American companies we can buy from that don’t spout their ignorant ideologies!!!

      1. Trump a Traitor…you must get your news from the communist news network CNN. Who is the guy that flew to communist China aboard air force 2 with his son Hunter and then came home with a 1.5 billion dollar financial investment for his sons corrupt company.. that would be JOE BIDEN. It was reported by Hunter Biden ex wife’s divorce attorney that Hunter Biden made a 15 million dollar commission on the deal his father China Joe cut with the Chinese… that’s what I call a corrupt traitor. Thank God for Trump.

        1. You are correct. The fools insist on supporting anti American positions.
          The fool who called Trump a traitor and anyone who supports him is obviously a socialists commie pretending he’s worthy to be in America. He’s Must be a supporter of The murder in Benghazi By Clinton and Obama. He must be a a Clinton supporter, Obama, Biden Who threatened a country by blackmail to get his son hunter money. He must support selling of abortion parts of babies for huge dollar. Proud of his support of anti American traitors like McCain, coney, mueller, pelosi, newsroom, what a list of losers he must belong to.
          One other note is you can’t buy President Trump, unlike the ones socialists support, as our President isn’t for sale.

  3. Good information! Thank you! We no longer are interested in GoodYear when they have such terrible policies. We want to buy American …from companies that LOVE America and the opportunities they have for ALL Americans!

  4. Goodyear’s CEO SHOULD RESIGN! Any idiot knows that involving your corporation in politics. To do so will alienate approximately half of your market.
    Giving aid and support to the marxist goons who would gladly destroy America is a slap in the face to all patriotic Americans. The refusal to allow red blooded American gear like “defending the thin blue line” or supporting our president Just furthers the insult.
    Cooper, BFG, even Firestone and Michelin all make tires in the USA for the North American Market. Plenty of opportunities to “buy American” without rewarding Goodyear’s Anti American Marxist stance. Our family has bought Goodyear tires for many years. Just the two cars at my house alone do about 30/35000 miles in a typical year. We and a good portion of the family will no longer buy Goodyear. From my perspective, they can take their blimp and move to China where they can live among their Anti American kindred spirits.

  5. Businesses shouldn’t dictate to their employees who they can or cannot support period! To say it’s ok for BLM & not Blue lives Matter is wrong. Sports & Hollywood should keep their political views to themselves too. I support our president 100%. For the record, if that’s how Goodyear feels, I don’t want to buy their American Tires & won’t. I’ll buy another American Tire.

  6. Goodyear must not be American, doesn’t have American values, doesn’t want to make America great again, and doesn’t think all American lives matter.

  7. Goodyear tires are trash. My prius ran through goodyear tires every 25,000-30,000 miles, even though the tire was rated 60,000. Junk. I never buy them anymore.

  8. i would not buy goodyear before this, and i damn sure will not buy them now!! and anybody who sides with the liberal dems, can go pound sand!!
