    I am looking to find out how makes " Trail Mark " tires? When I bought my '96 Chevy Suburban it had new tires on it, that was about 4 years ago and the tires that are on it are still in great condition but someday they will be needing replaced and I enjoy the ride of these tires.
    So I would like to know who manufactures these tires and if they are available here in Canada.

    Thanks a lot,

    looks like a company called republic makes them http://simpletire.com/republic-trail-mark-radial-apr-tires . When I googled it I also found that goodyear had a trademark on the name in 2012

    Then I found that Kelly sold trail mark also

    I suggest you google the exact information that is on your tire: Trail mark Radial APR, Trail Mark M/S. What ever it may be and look for a picture that matches your tire tread pattern. I hope that I was some sort of help

    They are made by Goodyear and are made along side of goodyear wranglers, trail marks have gone through some changes so they don't have as wide a selection on styles anymore. I always had these on my suburban until they went to a style more like Bridgestone duellers Road tires. They no longer have a separate AT or MT tire like they used too. So I bought a set of Dunlop max traction mud rovers and simply put they are the best tire I have EVER had on a vehicle, I even had the famed BFG AT before these and I hated them and only kept them on for a month. Seeing you live in Canada thought that might help, yes they are a mud tire but have great grip in snow and ice here in MN

    I just looked at your photo and can tell you have more of a street tire application then AT or MT, the mud tires I mentioned above are currently on my pickup and my suburban is riding on Kelly (goodyear owned) safari trex, they offer a great ride and are a 10 ply tire so a very puncture resistant.
