Default can anyone help identify these tire tracks?

I think the one is a Michelin I'm not sure of the other one though. Someone broke into our shop at work and we found these tire tracks out in the yard

Okay I'll look into it, thanks. At first I thought it was a type of Goodyear (the tread on the left)

First picture posted, it would appear the track came from a dually, and not a vehicle turning when the tires would not be perfectly in line.

Look at heavy duty tires. One of those patterns looked kinda similar to a Transforce AT.

I think its those goodyears. And the vehicle was turning and didn't have a matching set of tires. The NJ state police are looking into it

Thanks guys. Hopefully the NJSP come up with some DNA off the water bottles they took. Strange how we get broken into like this a week after a new guy gets hired..it was mostly just people cutting holes in the fence and people taking little bits of copper and stuff. But there were no holes in the fence and the forklift they used you would have had to previously ran it to know how to start it..
