Check out MTD's truck tire dealer forum
Now on this Web site under Feature Highlight and in our Features section is an enhanced version of Modern Tire Dealer magazine's June article, "Trucking industry up-shift boosts tire sales, say dealers: But raw material costs, gray market tires, low-cost imports remain challenges."
Senior Editor Mike Manges interviewed four tire dealers -- Jerry Bauer, Dennis Dickson, Jim McCurdy and Jim Stankiewicz -- to get their views on the medium truck tire market today and in the future.
Bauer is president of Durand, Wis.-based Bauer Built Inc.; Dickson owns Indianapolis, Ind.-based Indy Tire Centers Inc.; McCurdy is vice president of sales for Maine Commercial Tire Inc. in Bangor, Maine; and Stankiewicz is president of Charleroi, Pa.-based Valley Tire Co. Inc.
Their views on the significant issues facing truck tires dealers -- including gray market tires, fuel costs, the health of the trucking industry and more -- are insightful and illuminating.
