    Double Coins come standard on Landoll trailers so they can't be too bad. Can't speak for the other two brands.

    Double coins are made in china under Michelin “supervision”.
    The other two I have not heard of before. If you can post the first three digits of the dot number I can look up the plant were they are made.

    many decades ago, when before i got into trucking, my tire supplier had these new tires from Korea, named Hankook. they had back then a lifetime warranty to the original buyer.

    they are now made in America nad several of my kids or thier spouses have them on thier vehicles.

    all tires, manufactured in another country, NUST MEET USA standards. so i have seen a few different brands on many trailers and tractors over the years, so they can't be that bad.

    check for how many plys they have, and warranty for mileage, and a dealer network, if needed for a warranty replacement.

    check too for those large car races, and see who sponsors each truck. you start seeing foreign names for tires, they gotta be good for the speeds they run at.

    Yes. Hankook opened their first US plant in Tenessee in Oct 2017. All Hankooks were imported before than.
    They are now an oe supplier for Ford. They had been oe on Kia for years.
    Not a bad tire for the mid range price. I wouldn’t be scared of them.

    I was told that some of those foreign tires use an inferior belting.
