We checked out a set of BCT Winmax tires mounted on a GMC Yukon. The first couple digits of the DOT code are "0J", which traces back to a Chinese tire factory run by Beijing Capital Tire, which incidentally filed for bankrupcy around October 2014. It is unclear whether the company is now operating under new management, as we do not see their corporate website up any longer.
Beijing Capital also manufactured tires under the Autoguard and BCT brand names. In addition, their Autoguard tires had been subject to several tire recalls. We're not sure how directly this impacts their Winmax line of tires, but we suspect that the company's standards are not as up to par compared to better known brand names.
You can still find Winmax tires online and at local tire stores, but we would clear of these and spend a little more for peace of mind. While we strongly recommend choosing from the top rated SUV/truck tires list, here are our picks for budget SUV/truck tires:
