Is Chinese quality an oxymoron? Are comments just moronic? Let us know what you think

All we can say is, "Wow!" A recent blog about the quality of Chinese tires inspired opinions ranging in tone from loving to hateful.

The blog, written by Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich, referenced a Consumer Reports (CR) article that was less than complimentary about Chinese tires. The consumer magazine had tested Chinese brands for the first time; there were three in all, and they finished last in the 20-tire test project.

Respondents weighed in on the results and Ulrich's view of the article. Many believe quality is a concern. Others believe, as with most products, some are good, some are bad.

Regardless, they all seemed to agree that the issue was worth discussing.

Ulrich thinks the CR article paints too broad a brush when it comes to referencing Chinese tires. One of the respondents supports the CR article 100%.

Join in on the action by reading the blog, "CR claims too many Chinese tires lack quality," and the comments that follow it. Then leave one of your own. (There is a link to the CR article as well.)

There are also entertaining responses to the blog's teaser, "Chinese tires lack quality -- true or false?" Read those, too, and let us know what you think about the issue.

Your viewpoint matters, so feel free to bring politics, prejudices and insight into the discussion!
