1 seller on ebay has them and said his are made in Korea , from my reading on the net that they are a better quality when made in Korea than china. I will see if just tubes replies back to me tomorrow and see what they say about the ones they have for sale. I can also try the local auto parts stores john and see what they have , thanks for the heads up!!

The last time I looked into rear tires I found that I got a good price from the truck/ equipment tire service shop. I told them the tire I wanted. they ordered it for less than I found it online with shipping and mounted it on the rim.

Just an option.

I purchased the trans american brand today on amazon . I spoke to the owner of the company today and was told that the trans american tubes he sells are the same ones he supplies to the military. I don't know if that makes a difference or not sometimes it is the lowest bidder. but any way they are made in Korea and he informed he would not sell china made tubes. from my research it seems that most all tube today are made in those two countries.

I purchased tire tubes on amazon that are made by trans america company. they stated to me that there were made in Korea and not china . so the owner of the company said they are made for the military , is that good or bad ? sometimes it is the lowest bidder gets the job, but anyway they stand behind there product and I was told any problems at all and they will replace them at no charge.

I would expect military standards to be higher than normal and not necessarily the low bid. Otherwise you wouldn't hear stories about $900 claw hammers and $3000 toilet bowls.

Not necessarily the case. Things get inflated prices when on contract to the government for having to deal with all the buraucracy and paperwork...and now online junk. I can tell you about the only thing the government gets good deals on is vehicles and tires. Most other stuff is just inflated prices. Now military stuff probably has some higher standard they require on things than off the shelf stuff.

In some way it does to me as well on the other hand imported stuff including china junk increases many of us standard of living. Imagine if even 60% of things you bought were made in USA. Imagine how much things would cost. Certain things sure you can pay 5% more and get a similar or better USA made item but many things are made so cheap and shipped so cheap from china that no US business can compete, the item would cost 2 to 3x the china version. Now this is important because we as consumers can buy more, our dollar goes farther. I like being able to buy an arm load of tools from harbor freight for $200. I don't need over priced tool truck tools for basic work. Or even Husky or whatever the box store USA made brand is for 2-3x the HF model. You can say the same for a lot of things...TVs , TV stands, sheets light bulbs, whatever

You could say that I go out of my way to buy American!

First thing I ask or look for is where its made!

It kills me when a country of origin is not listed on any website..... That should be a mandatory part of the listing. Up at the top where everyone can see!

I don’t claim to understand the all of costs involved in manufacturing and shipping a product to a retailer and pricing it. Labor cost is only one component. I see very simple products like a plastic funnel and, often it is manufactured in the USA. Why? My guess is it’s one piece injection molded and human labor is minimal so shipping it from China probably costs more. At Walmart the SuperTech filters I buy cost $3 and are made in USA. The Fram filter made in China for the same vehicle costs over twice as much, even the lowest priced of the Good/Better/Best versions. The Chinese manufactured “best” version costs 3 times as much as the USA Made SuperTech brand. Why is the USA manufactured filter less than 1/2 the price of the Fram? Is it inferior quality? It looks the same. Does the Fram have twice as much filter material and filter much better? Advertising and the costs of creating and maintaining a recognizable brand name is my best guess why it costs a lot more. We can manufacture cars and heavy equipment in the USA but we don’t manufacture TVs or phones as far as I know. Why, I’m not sure.

I also don’t like it when the country it is in manufacture is not listed. That seems to be common for tractor tires. Miller Tire is good about identifying country of origin but has high prices in my opinion. Nuts and bolts now list a half dozen possible countries of origin on the package including China and USA.

I also like the option to buy a cheaper item if I don’t need all the features of the top of the line version. I try to buy Made in USA if possible. I try to avoid buying items made in China not so much because of the product quality but because of the way their government operates and treats people.

What is really disgusting is when there ceases to be a choice of buying a American made product like the tubes!

Or when they want to sell you the imported product for American prices!

Imported inner tubes for 4.00x12 tires should cost about 5 bucks.

And they should hold air! :lol:

Strict environmental regulations have driven most manufacturing processses, like tires, offshore.

The most recent "intelligence" I have on tubes is Firestone "Natural Rubber" tubes are the best money can buy.

Not only have strict environmental regulations driven manufacturing offshore, but also consumer buying practices... The average consumer is cash-strapped as salaries have not kept pace with the cost of living, so when they have the option of buying a $50 tire or a $150 tire, they are going to gravitate toward the the $50 tire. It's not a matter of patriotism or loyalty or quality. It's what they can afford. Feeding the kids and putting tires on the car so you can get to work to make enough money to feed the kids is not an either/or choice.
