I noticed that my tyres were made in Hungary. A colleague has just bought exactly the same ones online, but the tyres were made in Spain. Are they really the same?

Question from visitor, 08/01/2010 :After I bought online 4 Primary 225/55. 17 tyres for my Renault Espace, I noticed that my tyres were made in Hungary. A friend of mine has just bought exactly the same tyres online, but his tyres were made in Spain. Are they really the same? Is the rubber of the same quality?

Yes it's the same tyre and the same quality. Leading manufacturers have different production plants and are able to produce the same quality of tyres regardless of the plants's location.
