I do not see your specific tire mentioned, but Tirerack carries some Falken tires, and the examples I have seen were either Thailand or Japan.

https://www.tirerack.com/tires/falken-tires.jsp , go to a tire, then "specs" , rightmost column is country of origin.

My Pro G4 Faulken's say Thailand on them. Have not been impressed with mine.

OK thanks, so it looks like they're definitely not US made...I'd be ok with Japan though.

Most are from Thailand.

Falken is one of those brands with a huge range of products from cheapo all seasons to R-comp track tires. They have had some hits and misses over the years for sure.

Mostly Thailand, with some of their summer tires being made in Japan. A few are made in Indonesia as well.

They have started to make tires in the US since Sumitomo acquired Goodyear's factory in upstate NY. I'm not sure which Falken tires are being made here, but probably mostly OE tires, at least at first.

My ZE950 tires were made in Thailand.
