I did include the link to the plants as published by Cooper Tires to include their overseas facilities.

Does that link show where the facility is that corresponds with the codes like f5moab posted? I can't seem to find that data.

I thought the Albany, Ga plant closed? I drove by there the other day and I thought they tore the entire building down.

I did not mind your editing of my post. I have no idea what tires are made where; just that they do have plants other than in the US. The only way to check is by looking at the DoT code on what the dealer wants to put on your vehicle.

Take Goodyear for example. They make their ST "Marathon" line in the USA (Gadsden, Alabama code MD) and in China and sell both in the USA.
They do QC every tire the same and their name is behind the product, as I am sure is the case with Cooper Tires if they also distribute worldwide as they claim. The only way to tell is the "Made in USA" and a DoT code that reflects the plant.

The second link to the DoT registry has the actual locations by code.

IE the U9 code is COOPER TIRE & RUBBER CO TUPELO MISSISSIPPI UNITED STATES

As to plant closures, if the tires are still around, I assume knowing where they were made would facilitate a recall if necessary.

The web site I referenced uses extracted data from the NHTSA web site's Access Database. It contains the most complete listing to date. The extracted data is for the convenience of those without Microsoft's Access program installed.
