Hankooks and Kuhmos are Korean tires. After having worked in design for Toyota, then switching and working in design for Hyundai-Kia, and vomiting for years over the joke what is Hyundai-Kia and their suppliers compared to what I saw first hand with Toyota and their suppliers, I get queasy even thinking about anything Korean.
I'm sure there are some decent Korean things out there (Korean women ), but as it relates to Hyundai-Kia and their suppliers I worked with, they were amazingly horrible as compared to Toyota and their suppliers.
That said, I doubt I will ever own a Korean made product if there is an alternative.
Caveat - Hyundai-Kia still CRUSHES BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, in regards to owning a vehicle that is not a complete money pit. I'd rather own a Hyundai-Kia than anything European, except Porsche, Lambo, Ferrari.
