Mazda is an american company but not made here. Toyota is not an american company but made here. What is the deffinition of an american company to you.


Anyway, its Nitto Tire U.S.A Inc. It was an american spin off company of Toyo Tire. They are an American C Corporation.

Nitto Tire North America Inc is a private company categorized under Tire-Distributors (Whol) and located in Cypress, CA. Our records show it was established in 2005* and incorporated in California*. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of $20 to 50 million and employs a staff of approximately 20 to 49.




The world is more complex then "american company" now.

So as you can see. Its a subsidary of Toyo, but a U.S Corporation, they make the tires here, they employ people here. And they pay taxes here. But technically Toyo owns it. Its like Ford owning Mazeratti or Land Rover.

Wow, thanks a ton.
And I think of a company as american if they produce the majority of their products and sell their products here. OR if they were started here. OR as long as they don't get money from another government to keep running.

No problem. Yea. To me if the company is INC in the U.S then im cool with that. Like if I bought a Land Rover, ultimatley that money is going to Ford. But to some people, its about making the product here and creating jobs here.

But either way, nittos are made here. maybe with japanese rubber though, who knows. Either way, Nitto tires are awesome.
