Southern Tire Mart LLC, the country's largest independent commercial tire dealership, recently received the first shipment of truck tires from Continental Tire the Americas LLC's plant in Clinton, Miss.
Alliance Tire Americas Inc. (ATA) is bringing a new line of truck and bus radial (TBR) tires to market under its Galaxy brand. The new Galaxy TBR line includes 10 designs and more than 40 sizes of 16-ply, all-steel radials, with plans for continued expansion.
The challenges of 2020 have been immense, and commercial tire dealers are doing their best to weather the storm. As Bob Berlin, president of Orange, Mass.-based Pete’s Tire Barns Inc., put it, “We’re pretty much flat for the year — and we’re happy.”
