Our military may soon penalize Michelin

Posted on April 9, 2014

What the heck did Michelin North America Inc. do to tick off the United States government?

As we entered 2014, they seemed to be friendly. Now, that friendship appears to be on shaky ground.

The reason is Michelin's direct and indirect relationships with the U.S. military. The company's potential business relationship with Iran hasn't helped the situation.

To find out what's going on, check out Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich's latest blog, "Right or wrong, the U.S. government is picking on Michelin."

Do any ties to Iran make a company a pariah? Is it Michelin's fault the U.S. government is pleased with Michelin's tires and delivery service?
