Douglas All Season P195/55/R14

Update to the manufacturer - I was in the Walmart, Creighton Road, Pensacola, FL and snapped a picture of the display tire ed. pictures not submitted, which showed the codes for this tire manufactured by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Fayetteville, NC, in the 35th week of 2016.


I am considering the Douglas tire (different size) as a budget replacement to my Michelin Premier A/S tires. I have 73K miles on this set, yet don't know if my Hyundai with 159K miles will last much longer and don't want to drop $680 on tires if Walmart/Douglas/Goodyear tires ($55+$12 installation) will get me down the road just fine.

I'll invest in an alignment like I normally do - and keep them balanced/rotated, properly inflated as I should. I don't do any hard cornering, hit curbs, fast starts/hard stops, etc.

Haven't had tire troubles except for a few screws/nails over the years - pretty certain HOW you drive and how you CARE for your car and tires goes a LONG way to how long they last; of course, I've been lucky to avoid a lemon off the tire line, too, so there's that.

Anyway, just wanted to update the DOUGLAS TIRE thread with info about who is manufacturing this tire for Walmart.

Even though you failed to include the picture, you could have at least copied the DOT code which includes information as to the manufacturing facility where a tire was made.

All Douglas brand tires are manufactured by GoodYear because GoodYear is the owner of the trademark. Since these tires are not seen offered for sale anywhere except Walmart, it is evident that there is an exclusive contract between GY and Walmart. We have attempted to obtain details about the contract from both Goodyear and Walmart and both have been tight-lipped about them except to confirm that Goodyear makes the tires and Walmart sells them.
