All Petro lube shops to carry Yokohama tires

Sept. 23, 2004

Yokohama brand medium truck tires will be sold at all Petro Lube franchise locations throughout the United States.

"Adding the entire network of Petro´s retailers to our previously existing national tire dealer base has greatly improved our distribution and availability," says William Forsch, Yokohama´s manager of travel plaza sales.

Petro Lube Vice President Dave Latimer says the company added Yokohama tires "because we had numerous requests for their product from some of our existing large fleet fuel customers."

Yokohama´s business relationship with Petro spans several years "and as acceptance and demand grew, the addition of franchise locations was a natural progression," according to Yokohama officials.
