Made in Korea/China tires are in good quality, should I change them

I have 4 tires of brand Ling long tires for my Acura, they have been running for 4 years, 90,000 kilometres. The wear is still very minimal.

The tires are very good quality, the grab and performance are much better than My pirelli and Continental on my Toyota.

My mechanic told me that Chinese and Korea brand tires are actually better quality than European and American ones.

But I see a lot of unfair negative review on them. Should I change my tires based on those unfair reviews or should I still run with those tires Since they are still good.

Btw, Ling Long is the official sponsor of Juventus FC, not sure whether the manufacturer is China or Korea. Back in Europe, we use them very often than Canada.

West GTEH!
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
If you still have good tread depth and the tires are still in good condition, keep them.
Unless you want new tires because......?

Pirelli and Kumho are Chinese owned tire companies now
