they were on my volvo when i bought it. besides being the worst tires i have ever driven on, they last a long time. so far they have about 20,000 miles on it which is a record for me for tire mileage.

Here is a partial list of private label tires http://www.moderntiredealer.com/files/stats/Private%20Brands.pdf April 17, 2009 ATD now selling Capitol, Negotiator lines American Tire Distributors Inc. (ATD) is now selling the Capitol and Negotiator private brands, which were formerly owned by AM-PAC Tire Distributors. ATD acquired AM-PAC in December 2008. ATD is positioning Negotiator as a "fourth tier, opening price point" product, according to company officials. "We see Capitol as being a value line. Our intent is to fill it out to be a complete passenger and light truck offering, which may include other products, like trailer tires." Capitol and Negotiator round out ATD's private brand line-up, which also includes Dynatrac, a commercial truck tire product. http://atd-us.com/ Top

Was reading that list and they really branded a tire "Achilles"? Seriously??? Your 2 letter DOT code will tell you the plant where the tire was made.

This is interesting... I've been e-mailing Del Nat (National) about tires today. Many of their car tires are made by Cooper..the National Finalist (a tire I was looking at), is made in China. If I had to go private, American, GT Radial, or Nexen would be my choices....
