Goodyear extends trailer tire supply agreement with Tredit
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and Tredit Tire & Wheel Co. Inc. have signed a contract to supply Goodyear trailer tires to original equipment trailer manufacturers.
The agreement is a two-year extension of the supply contract originally signed in 2005 by the two companies.
Goodyear will supply Marathon ST tires with 13- to 16-inch rim diameters. Goodyear Marathon tires are used on light- and medium-duty trailers, which include RV, cargo, horse and boat trailers.
Most trailer tires are delivered to OE trailer manufacturers as part of a tire-and-wheel assembly, relieving the trailer manufacturers of the burden of ordering tires, rims and valves, maintaining inventories, mounting and inflating.
Tredit performs these functions and delivers completed assemblies on a just-in-time basis to the trailer manufacturers.
