Chinese tires lack quality -- true or false?

Consumer Reports recently included Chinese tires in a 20-tire comparison test. The Chinese tires finished 18th, 19th and 20th, respectively.

The Consumer Report report is timely given the United States government's interest in the record number of consumer tires imported from China. But is the report true, misleading or flat-out wrong?
