Average Test Review
Law typical of the middle class are the tires 225 60 R15 division: they can be found on a number of vehicles in the medium and compact class. In this field, the budget tires dominate.
Many of today's budget brands as submitted by tire manufacturers that already are partially decades in the business - often as a licensed producer of well-known premium brands on the market. Therefore, many of them have the most advanced manufacturing technology, the standards are adapted to those of the previous license products. So what the earlier Michelin or Goodyear tires came in 225 60 R15 size on the market, is today perhaps Kumho or Nankang - the quality and the advanced mode of production, there are no difference. In particular, Michelin pursued a proven business model for a long time: The company buys with usually up to 90 percent in smaller tire manufacturers, it equips with advanced production technology and helps small businesses also help sell the products worldwide. The name Michelin has it no longer stand on the tires - even though the company is 90 percent owner of the mark.
It just does not matter from which country the tires - whether in 225 60 R15 or a different size - comes. Especially the premium brands have also previously can be produced even in Southeast Asia - no matter which brand name is actually on the summer or winter tires is. The point is rather, behind it which manufacturer and which technology is used. Some former license producers (eg Hankook) have today even managed as an established brand in the market, as original and as test winner in many tests.
