    What Brand is This 4.00-6 Tire?

    So I recently bought this 4.00-6 mini bike tire because I have a bike I plan to use it on. There's no brand name on this tire I was hoping it might be a Carlisle tire. Are there any tire experts that can help me figure out the brand and maybe year of this tire? I appreciate any help I can get!
