I was wondering, I wanted to know who makes the Futura line of tires for Pep boys. Specifically the Futura 775 line. The reason I want to know is that my car has 2 Futura Tires, but there is not a Pep boys closer than like 30 mins away, and I was curious if I could get 2 more from the company that makes the futura tires for Pep Boys. I did the same thing with the Kirkland tires from B/F goodwrench, and wanted to do the same with these futura tires so I don't have to buy 4 new tires.

Just doing a quick google search seems to indicate that Cooper makes them. I could be wrong though as this site doesn't specifically list Futura 775.

http://www.coopertirelitigation.com/coopertire_home.html

If you read the site, it does say that some Cooper tires produced in a certain date range and problems with tread separation.

This isn't the same type of tire but check out this review:

I love the strengths and weaknesses mentioned.

from working there VERY PREVIOUSLY, yes, cooper makes them.
I can second this as I used to also work at a Pep Boys and currently have a set of Futura's on my sable. They are pretty good for what you spend on them if you ask me.
