Goodyear SA

In visiting Tire Rack site I now see that there are 2 entries for this tire in 265/60/18 size. One is made in USA, other in Canada. Only described difference is 2 pound tire weight difference. Why? What is changed?

Re: Goodyear SA

The "*New" one may be the new OE spec for the Trailhawk edition...just guessing. In that case, I'd spend the few $ more, and buy the one made in US. Or, you could try contacting TR to see what the difference is -- other than weight.

Re: Goodyear SA

I'm not in the market for tires at this time. I just thought one of the tire professionals in our ranks might have the inside scoop on this. Thanks anyway.
