BBTS will discontinue Dayton truck tire brand
Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS) will discontinue sales of its Dayton medium truck tire and radial bus tire line on Jan. 1, 2011.
The decision affects medium truck tire dealers and fleet customers in the U.S. only and does not impact the sales or availability of Dayton brand light truck and passenger tires, according to BBTS officials.
"This decision is based on the desire to simplify our product offering, making it easier for our distributors and customers to conduct business with us," says BBTS President Kurt Danielson.
"As a supplier who works with fleets to implement tire management solutions to lower overall operating costs, we feel that Firestone brand truck and bus tires will offer customers a viable alternative."
BBTS expects supplies of Dayton brand truck tires will be available through the fourth quarter of 2010. Dayton truck tire warranties will continue to be honored.
