Alliance Tire Americas presented a check for $500 to the Tomah High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) in Tomah, Wis., last week in conjunction with the company’s three-year sponsorship of the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA).

Visitor participation was key to Alliance’s charitable effort, and was centered at the company’s trailer at the Budweiser Dairyland Super National Truck and Tractor Pull in Tomah. Every participant in the Alliance “Spin and Win” promotion increased Alliance’s contribution to the local FFA; the company pitched in an additional donation for each photo posted from the pull to #alliancetirepulls.

Nelda Bailey, Tomah High School FFA advisor, said, “The Tomah FFA really appreciates Alliance Tire supporting our FFA members with this donation. We will be using the donation to help support events for the members throughout the year such as speaking contests, conventions and leadership workshops.”

Bruce Besancon, vice president for marketing of Alliance Tire Americas, says the company is strongly committed to leadership development and the success of young farmers and agribusiness professionals.

“Through this donation and others we will be making to FFA, 4-H and other organizations throughout the summer, we are proud to support America’s next generation of farmers and honor the nation’s agricultural legacy,” Besancon says. 

Alliance Tire Americas joined NTPA — the world’s oldest and most respected tractor and trailer pulling sanctioning organization — this year as an official sponsor, and was the first major tire partner for the organization.

The next major pulling event Alliance will be supporting is to be held in Chapel Hill, Tenn., on July 18.

You’ve Got Email: It’s Still the Way to Go to Market, Digitally Speaking

Remember email? Sometimes in the communication that is texting, tweeting or ‘Snapchatting,’ email is taken for granted. Facebook is great for sharing your thoughts and feelings to everyone you have friended, but email is more targeted, especially when used for business. You might say it is even more personal than Facebook because it is designed for interaction between two people or among a small group of people.

Drew Howlett from Falken says developing the right M/T tire is critical. “There are too many other competitive products on the market to have any weaknesses.”

M/T Tires are Having a Moment: Consumer Demand Is Blurring the Lines

There are off-road warriors who never let their vehicles or mud-terrain tires touch pavement. There are others who like to occasionally play in the dirt, but need their fun vehicles to do double duty to go to work or school. And increasingly, there are drivers with lifted trucks and mean-looking tires who chase the aesthetic more than the lifestyle their vehicle portrays.
