Speedco gets ready for number 33
Speedco Inc.´s lastest store is special, according to the company. It is not only the truck lube chain´s 33rd nationwide and its first in Northern California, but also the template for new locations.
In August, Speedco Inc. announced it will begin selling Goodyear, Michelin and Yokohama tires and Bandag retreads in addition to providing quick lube services. The company said truck tire service bays will be added to existing stores over the next two years.
The Cayuga, Ind.-based operation´s outlets in Atlanta, Ga., and Amarillo and El Paso, Texas, already are offering the new service. So will the new stores.
The Goodyear, Michelin and Yokohama truck tires will be supplied by commercial tire dealers in close proximity to Speedco´s on-highway stores, according to the company. Bandag retreads for over-the-road/long-haul applications will be supplied by Bandag dealers.
The company´s tire services include tire inspection, replacement and repair and wheel balancing. (Speedco advertises tire service "in about 30 minutes.") Service packages include a comprehensive examination of the following:
* the tires on a vehicle, including tread depth.
* air pressure.
* proper torquing of wheel fasteners.
Speedco also offers filter changes (oil, fuel, coolant, air), refrigeration unit service (oil and filters), fifth wheel and wheel hub service, transmission and differential fluid changes, and anti-freeze/coolant top-off and testing.
The grand opening of Speedco´s new store will be held Wednesday, Dec. 8, in Corning, Calif.
