Sometimes,
a declining number could be simply losing an unprofitable oem tire fitment where they made no money.

For example if michelin lost out to hankook or giti

A lot of Chinese and east Asian companies are getting into the game and stealing market share away. Instead of a US company outsourcing, they're doing their own marketing and peddling their products to tire dealers themselves, and people are eating them up to save a couple bucks.

Most people I know give zero thought into their tires, they just want the cheapest or, believe the tire dealer when they say they are getting a good tire for their money. I had a co-worker proudly display his new Linglong Crosswind A/T tires with the white letters out. He thought he got a smokin' deal, I just laughed.

Linglong Desperados are a pretty good A/T tire with good traction and mileage.

I absolutely love Cooper tires.
I saw a Chinese tire on a car next to me at Wal Mart called a Passion Tyre.
Right now I have Coopers on the 2007 F 150XL, Firestones on the 2010 RAV 4, Michelin OEM's on the 2017 RAV4, Yokohama's on the 2003 4Runner.The Coopers on the 2006 Prius that I gave my son recently had exceeded their mileage rating and had plenty of tread left.

You can't prove they are bad tires just because of the country of origin. Have a cell phone or a wide screen. Might be made "over there".....

It will be hard to resist not mentioning that one when the next tire thread appears asking which tire to buy. LOL

Yea-it's almost as good as Goodyear's "winged shoe".

Do you really think you can cast stones when a company has a "winged shoe" logo?
