I have Lucas tires that were made in England for $99.99 3 years ago,now $119.00,they are doing fine so far,they replaced the Sears Allstate tires from 1960 that still would hold air but were very cracked on the sidewalls.

Yea, no. Lucas tires are made in Vietnam.

American Classic Radials??

But it kind of makes sense that tires are made overseas. We don't have a whole lot of Rubber Tree Plantaions in USA.
