"Of course this is a worthless argument since huge amounts of Michelin tire production take place outside of France."


Probably 90% of Michelins export tires to the US are made in China these days...or Malaysia....


"Michelin builds US$1.5bn tire factory in Shenyang"

probably the only tires they make in France are ones they sell in the European union...and that is because they tax 'imports' so high that they protect their home manufacturers against any real competition.....

Likely every car made in France must use French tires by law...regardless of the price....
