MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. (March 13, 2014) — Vogue Tyre & Rubber Co. has opened its 16th Custom Center location at Gregg Orr Automotive in Shreveport, La.
Vogue Tyre said Gregg Orr Automotive will now be able to provide its customers with the ability to personalize their new and pre-owned vehicles with the latest custom-made tires, wheels, and accessories from Vogue.
“We’re very pleased to be able to bring our Custom Centers into the state of Louisiana with such a distinguished auto group,” said Vogue Tyre President Greg Hathcock. “The Gregg Orr Auto Collection family of dealerships has a tradition of exceeding customers’ expectations and we are excited to partner with another family owned business with a tradition of excellence.”
The Gregg Orr Auto Collection family of dealerships span the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Florida, according to the company’s website. It operates “23 dealerships with 18 unique franchises and a pre-owned inventory that totals over a thousand cars, trucks and SUVs at any given time.”
Last November Vogue opened its 15th Custom Center location, at Covert Cadillac and Covert Buick-GMC in Austin, Texas.
Vogue Tyre, founded in 1914, invented the whitewall tire in the early 1900s. The company operates a nationwide sales and distribution network of warehouses and offers vehicle customization packages by providing custom tires, wheels and accessories through new car dealerships, select tire dealers and company-operated custom centers.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
