Posted on March 20, 2017

King Tire Service Inc. from Bluefield, W.Va., is adding a second retreading facility, and the new shop in Bristol, Va., will operate as a ContiLifeCycle partner.

King Tire Service was Continental Tire the Americas LLC's first U.S. licensed retreader. The dealer is No. 82 on Modern Tire Dealer's Top 100 Retreaders list.

“I am truly happy that our partnership with King Tire Service has been so successful over the last 5 years and that they again committed to our ContiLifeCycle approach,” says Paul Williams, executive vice president for Continental's Commercial Vehicle Tires business unit in the Americas. “We could not have chosen a better partner not only for the existing locations in West Virginia, but now looking forward to expanding that success into the Virginias and look forward to continuing to grow our ability to service fleets with our ContiLifeCycle approach and our long partnership with the excellent King Tire Services company."
