    Counterfeit Pegasus Tires pose huge danger

    shocking news (kinda)

    seems that after the Pegasus tire company stopped dealing with a factory in china and the factory closed, some of the tire molds went missing.

    Molds have a very large value.

    The result appears to have been that _somebody_ is making tires with these molds, but old latex balloons and rubber bands are not good source materials

    beware bargain tires is the watchword here:

    Saw that yesterday. Just another reason to not buy cheap tires.

    China has no morals. They not only pollute the planet, they pollute the sanctity of modern manufacturing.

    Now if only we can bring back more "Made in U.S.A"....

    can I interest you in a bucket of rocks?

    There are bad apples in every bag.

    Granted I'd be looking a little harder if the bag is from China.

    The truly curious part of the tale is why a running tire factory would be destroyed just because a contract was lost.

    The other curious thing is how the molds grew legs and walked off.

    Made in the usa is pretty much dead, nobody wants a factory job anymore..why bother?

    The government does a fine job of taking care of people who aren't that motivated.
