End is near for Kelly farm tires

July 18, 2006

Titan International Inc. is proceeding with the phase-out of the Kelly farm tire brand.

Jeff Vasichek, Titan's vice president of sales and marketing, told moderntiredealer.com that Kelly will be gone by the end of the year.

Titan is promoting the Goodyear and Titan farm tire brands. "In the end, we don't need Kelly."

Titan acquired the Kelly farm tire brand when it acquired marketing rights to the Goodyear farm tire line via its purchase of Goodyear's farm tire unit earlier this year.
