IMO, the Ironman tires you bought look great. They are all made in Asia. According to Consumer Reports, the RB12 tires are produced in Vietnam; the RB-12 NWS are a different tire, though, and I have been unable to find out where they’re manufactured. Tim, can you share your experience with the tires? I am thinking about ride comfort, noise, handling in the dry AND in the rain (just in case). Thank you!
