New brands are popping up all the time. It has come to the point that most tires are now made in China so the comment is unfounded (although stated as an opinion, it has no basis).

tread pattern is only one part of a good tire...whether for all season or winter, etc....compound and manufacturing...or just as important...LOLrackman wrote: ↑Sep 19th, 2009 7:56 pmI actually visited a tire shop today to get some quotes for a package for winter. One of the tires I was quoted on was for a Sonny winter tire.
The tread pattern looked very good, and the price was incredible (16" - $600 w/steelies), but I'm not sure I'm comfortable going in this direction.
You get what you pay for; tires are not something I would recommend skimping on.
I know the question was in relation to all seasons, but this seemed somewhat relevant.

so what happen when all the major brand start producing tires in China?sixer wrote: ↑Sep 19th, 2009 6:30 pmChinese Tires, lol! No Way my family is getting chinese tires!!!
ps. Spigme, Nokian's product development, administration and marketing functions are located in the Nokia facility in Finland.
The company has two tire manufacturing factories, one in the town of Nokia in Finland and the other one in Vsevolozhsk, Russia. The Russian factory is a new one; the operations started in the summer 2005.
Do Not Buy Chinese tires, stick to a good name brand.

Eventually probably but not with the new tariffs Obama imposed.
