Default Color lettering

i found a set of Firestone Destination M/t and they seem to have light blue color around the lettering. Does it mean it was made for a superstore. ie Canadian tire or Walmart?

i do not want a mud tire from a superstore because they are made to be cheaper. i could be wrong

Most new tires have a protective compound over the white letters to protect them. The color usually is blue. Take soap, water, and a brush to them and I bet the color comes off.

Ya, would say after a quick wash with soap and water you will have white lettering and no blue left on the tire.

All the tires I have ever bought have had the blue tint to protect the wite letters. Like they said it just scrubs right off with soap and water.
