weird Scott mtb tyre?

Hey guys..I just got this "Scott Manx 2.0K" tyre from local bike shop. As far as i know, the labellng seems different compared to scottusa.com website. I paid about $12 bucks for one and it is a foldable. I checked the knobs and both of them(mine and the one showed on scottusa.com website) seems indentical. But i reckon that this is not the original tyre made by Scott anyway. Anyone have ideas about this?

If the tread is the same, it's likely the same tire. You may just have an older version which has an earlier style label.

Yup. Happens all the time. I've seperately bought three of the same tire model from Specialized and the design label is different on all three even though it's the same tire. It might just be to keep track of the age of the batches.
