Fleet Tire Inc. has joined the Michelin Commercial Service Network (MCSN). The Knoxville, Tenn.-based dealer operates one outlet with five service trucks and six Tire Industry Association (TIA)-certified service specialists.

As part of the MCSN, Fleet Tire will offer a complete range of services, including repairs, routine service, diagnostics, inspection, alignments, Michelin OnCallTM 24/7/365 emergency road service (ERS), and Michelin Tire Care preventative tire monitoring for fleets needing service and tires in the I-40, I-75, and I-81 highway area.

“Fleet Tire has had a 28-year-long relationship with Michelin providing quality service for our Eastern Tennessee fleet customers,” says Ralph Dimenna, chief operating officer for Michelin Americas Truck Tires Division.

Michelin North America Inc.s' Michelin Americas Truck Tires division says MCSN is designed to help fleets maximize uptime and ensure consistent, high-quality service from a nationwide franchise network. The addition of Fleet Tire brings the MCSN to approximately 600 locations across the United States.

Fleet Tire will provide professional service to commercial customers with Michelin, BFGoodrich, and Uniroyal products that include commercial truck, motor home and trailer, and passenger/light truck tires.

Fleet Tire has also offered Michelin Retread Technologies products since 1999.

“The Michelin Commercial Service Network program gives fleets confidence that their needs will be met professionally with an emphasis on their bottom line,” says Jerry Linginfelter, president of Fleet Tire.

“We are proud to be the newest MCSN member as well as an integral part of the Knoxville community. We believe in being a good community citizen by contributing to a wide range of charitable programs in the area.”
