Denman. I am pretty sure that I had their NDTs with dates from the war era.

Photos would have been nice, but who would have thought back then? I started witnessing all these brand names long before curious collectors were born. Good Year is my favorite. I do have some examples in my spares , they are:
GoodYear, Armstrong, Inland, Kelly Springfield, BF Goodrich, not all are GI issue, some are civilian. Only the Armstrong and Inland have GI marking. 6.00X16 NDT Tires also had a good 40's-50's Civilian demand for those CJ-2A and CJ-3A Civilian Jeeps.
There was a steady dribble of NOS Surplus 6.00-16" NDT's during the 60's thru 80's from the Depots, might have been for the M-422 or any of the specialty trailers and dollies that used that size. Phil Nelson always seemed to be the buyer of these.

I believe there was also MOHAWK. Two MB jeeps that I have seen in Greece (with their spare tyres original and unmolested) carried those in the back.

Mohawk was a familiar brand 7.00X16 NDCC replacement in the 60's-70's.

Cooper made NDT's during WWII, but at the moment I can't find anything to prove they stocked them in 6.00x16 during WWII.
"Peep" was the name used by the Armored Force for the 1/4 Ton truck early in WWII.
