Are both made by the same manufacturer, under different names?

The production dates for the tire involved are different. The Plant(s) involved are not both listed.  I am thinking that since people seem to have so much difficulty finding and reading the DOT serial it may no longer be shown in all recall announcements.  If I learn anything I will post the info here.
