I'm not debating ST vs. LT tires. I'm not questioning their standards versus each other. The statement that I question is:
"Every ST tire is made overseas from what I have researched. So keep in mine two things. Not made to US standards.."

The post that I quoted and asked about seems to be saying that since they're made overseas, they aren't made to US standards. That's what I'd like actual proof/documentation of.

Ah, sorry. I misunderstood. I thought you were looking for confirmation on whether ST's and LT's had to meet the same standards. While I would agree that every ST tire is made overseas, you're right that they have to meet US ST standards. US ST standards are just a bit low for my taste... It's not the overseas component I personally don't like. Lots of great products are made overseas.

I guess I should rephase that as that is misleading and out of line a bit. A lot of tires are made overseas whether it be ST or LT tires. One thing I know is that you will not find a ST tire made in the US that is E rated or lesser.

What I should have said I would not trust a tire made overseas that is not USA Engineered to meet a certain spec by a given US based Tire Manufacturer (as to when they outsourced manufacturing overseas).

There are alot of good LT tires on the road that are made overseas. But I would never trust a ST tire on a heavy high dollar item.
