Road trip! MTD visits dealers in seven states
Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich recently drove 2,665 miles across seven states, visiting independent tire dealers to discuss the state of their businesses and the unique challenges they face. What did he learn? Find out in his feature story, "Road trip!," available in the November issue of MTD!
"The trip was everything I had hoped it would be," Ulrich writes. "All seven dealers were accommodating despite my surprise visits. They were willing to share their secrets of success and, in some cases, survival in the face of a brutal recession."
The November 2009 edition of MTD also contains exclusive articles about tire dealer and tire manufacturer reactions to Chinese tire tariffs, the state of the light truck/SUV tire market, how vehicle design and construction impact tire performance, and more.
