Kickin' the (Truck) Tires Is Not Enough for TravelCenters of America

Posted on December 14, 2017

Since forming the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network in 2016, TravelCenters of America LLC has been a mover and a shaker in the commecial tire industry.

It continues to shake things up with its latest two projects.

1. The Commercial Tire Network Customer Service Line is an 800-number that will connect its customers, including big and small fleets, to a tire expert to help answer any tire questions they might have and find the right tire application for their vehicles. "Whether long-haul, local, mountain, plains or other vehicles used in the commercial segment, a member of our team is ready to help answer any questions," says the company.

Tire experts will answer the number, (800) 311-1092, seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. EST.

2. Kickin' the Tires with Robert Armstrong. Armstrong, regional sales manager for the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network, will be the co-host of "Kickin' the Tires" on the Dave Nemo Show on SiriusXM's Road Dog Trucking Channel (channel 146) beginning in 2018. It will air at 7 a.m. CST the second Thursday of every month.

During the show, Armstrong will provide information tips and field call-in questions about the second largest vehicle expense -- tires.
