Semprit tyres were manufactured in Poland (I think!) and were fitted as O.E. to FSOs, which explained their somewhat "wayward" handling... I had a FSO many years ago, and after re-shoeing with a set of Michellins it drove beautifully!

Semeprit are an Austrian company (now owned by Continental), the factory is in Traiskirchen, I don't think they have had factories outside Austria, but I'm prepared to be corrected! 'Alpine Proven' is apt and true.

Phun Phact - Semperit is from the Latin semper it  meaning 'it always runs'.
