Tires--anyone recognize them?

These are some LT265/75/16 tires. Can anyone identify the brand--has a distinct tread? I am thinking of picking them up.

Follow-up Post:

Found out they are "Blue Streak" --they describe themselves as a 4th tier tire supplier. Gonna stay away.

Don't hold me to it, but they look like the older style Yokohama Geolander A/T II's (or a knock off of them). I don't think they produce that pattern anymore though. If so, most people I have talked to who have run them have liked them for an A/T style tire.

I was going to say exactly what Scott did. I had a set of Yoko Geolanders on a Rangie and those tires wore great and did reasonably well off road. I gave them to a friend @ 30k and he got another 2 yrs out of them. These look like exact knock offs of that tread pattern. Bet this is a Yoko private label tire.

Knock off, yes. Private label yoko? I'm not quite sure. If you look very closely at the curvature and tread cuts of the longer shoulder lugs of the "blue streaks" as compared to the Yoko's they are different. They could still be a private label Yoko, but why change the tread if that's the case?

I got an answer from the owner that they were BlueStreak--he said it is owned by Goodyear. Don't know about that, but quite frankly I would rather not get a "ultra" cheap tire. I suppose when the chips are down, I am not that cheap.

Anyone have some used BFG AT 265/75/16 they want to sell?
