Buying union made in the USA tires is simple but a little time consuming. Tires are a big purchase so it’s great to make sure I’m investing in good union jobs.
United Steel Workers (USW) represents the workers at a number of tire plants in the US. As with many items, it’s all about tracing the tires to which plant they were actually made at.
I take my car to Don Foshay’s in Hallowell, and Chris there was fantastic at helping me find union made tires– thank you Chris!
I went online and printed off this list off this list from USW. What’s great is that each tire has a DOT number, and that number includes letters that signify exactly where they were made.
I faxed this to Chris at Don Foshay’s, Chris faxed it to his warehouse, made a couple of calls, found the tires that fit my Ford Focus, and ordered them. They were on my car within a couple days.
I got B.F. Goodrich tires and they are great. What a difference a good pair of tires makes.
