Ordered tires from RevZilla, but

I received my two Anakee III's from RevZilla the other day. They arrived just as they said. But, I am puzzled. I ordered them from RevZilla, but one of the tires was labeled from Parts Unlimited. The were both shipped together and banded together. So who did I really get them from? I'm guessing that RevZ got the one tire from Parts Unlimited. It's no big deal, just glad I got them.

Parts Unlimited is the distributor -- the middleman between the factories and the retailer (RevZilla). I don't know what the percentages are, but PU handles a VERY large percentage of distribution for the powersports aftermarket. Revzilla got both tires through PU, but one still had a sticker attached.

You'll also see random "Drag Specialties" stickers on stuff sometimes -- DS is one of PU's many brands. I got some knobbies for my KLR650 a few weeks ago with a DS sticker, even though DS is PU's "cruiser" parts brand.
