Here's more on Belle Tire Distributors' new store, number 86, which the company officially opened in Gaines Township, Mich., today, Nov. 18, 2011.

"The store is our prototypical, 10,000-square-foot building with two full alignment pits and eight service hoists," says Jeff Kruse, vice president of retail operations. The store's two-level warehousing space can accommodate 3,000 tires.

Belle Tire store hours are as follows:

Monday and Thursday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.;

Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and

Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Belle Tire announced the grand opening of the store two days ago. It is located 10 miles southeast of Grand Rapids and will be run by Manager Steve McCormack, a Grand Rapids native, and Assistant Managers Jamie Ector, Alex Torres and Kris Kayner. McCormack has been a manager with Belle Tire for seven years.

In addition to tires (the website lists 38 different brands), Belle Tire and its staff of ASE-certified auto repair professionals offer tire and wheel service; under-car service such as shocks and struts and brakes; oil changes; windshield repair and replacement; and more.

Belle Tire is eighth on the Modern Tire Dealer 100 list.
