Michelin Canada employs 3,400 people producing car tires and bus tires in Nova Scotia.

Michelin let us know that it’s very difficult to identify specific tires that are made in Nova Scotia, as different lines and sizes are shipped throughout North America from all their facilities. However,  you can identify tires made at these plants with the DOT codes molded in their sidewall as follows: DOT B3, DOT HN, DOT M5. We’re not sure it’s possible to get this information before actually buying a tire, but it’s the best we’ve got.
