Looks a little bit like the Cross Climate from Michelin.

They are labeling it as an all-season tire. looks like an excellent choice for a quiet tire and I might consider it if I lived out of the snow belt

A revival from the dead, I recall seeing an Armstrong tire sign as a kid. Pirelli bought them out just to get some US manufacturing, the US arm was known as Pirelli-Armstrong.

It seems like Thailand is where mid-3rd tier tires are being made now. Lots of bicycle tires are made there - Vee Rubber being the most well-known and I think Bridgestone and Michelin are making tires there for cars and trucks.

That's a high performance tire- any tire like it are not meant for winter.

In other words.....useless post of the day award.....

I like the looks of the SUV tire.

Although with a 320 tread wear rating, I would be concerned it will wear quickly.

The Armstong Tru-Trac was one of the innovators in the off road tire business. I ran them on everything. Bias Ply, Nylon thump thump in the cold, but boy did they work in mud, snow, even had decent flotation in the sand. I'd buy that tire again in a heartbeat.

Michelin also makes tires in China-sends them all over Europe.
