The Wanli brand came into existence in 1991 and has grown to become one of the broadest lines in China and around the world. Wanli currently exports 70% of its production to over 110 countries. Since Wanli is state owned it has also become the State Enterprise Technology center for the region and has elevated their research to international levels. This has allowed them to introduce 24 to 26 inch UHP tires, snow tires, and run flat tires into the Chinese markets and become viable competition in the world markets. Their research facilities are currently working on the 10 series UHP tires to become one of the first factories to offer them worldwide.
Wanli has always kept pace with the evolution of tire factories and currently has a fully automated production line with state of the art equipment from around the world.
