    SKU versus EAN

    Hi! I'm a broker in the tire business and was wondering how I could go about getting the Tire Manufacturer's SKU versus the EAN. Obviously, they won't release the info but if someone could help out I'd greatly appreciate it.

    i don't understand your use of "versus" here

    manufacturers can assign whatever SKU numbers they wish, but the EAN is a global standard, and the manufacturer is given a range of numbers to use

    were you hoping that someone here just might have a database of these numbers?

    that would be unlikely

    SKU versus EAN

    I should have used the word connotate. I believe you understand the situation. Just to be sure an example would be that the tire manufacturer assigns a specific SKU to sell tire X in the States and then an EAN to sell the very same tire X (same model, size, load and speed rating) in Europe. I've been searching for such a cross reference list for sometime and came across this site so I thought I would give it a shot. Thanks for your assistance.
