I saw the db ones but was looking for a brand name. The only ones I found other then those were BFG and are a 5-7 week lead time. Anybody else have them in stock or are they usually a custom order bc of the whitewalls?

DiamondBack is one of the leading brand names in reproduction tires - bar none. The wide whitewalls is their market niche....because most other 'boutique' tire vendors don't make them.

Diamondback puts white walls on brand name tires. I do not believe they manufacture any tires.

I agree. That is my understanding as well.

DB only puts the whitewall or color stripe on the name brand tire, they do not "make" the tire.
