FULLERTON, Calif. (May 7, 2014) — Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores L.L.C. is now offering Yokohama Tire Corp.’s wide-base single truck tires through the truck stop chain’s 191 Truck Tire Care locations nationwide.
The outlets will carry Yokohama’s TY517 (drive) and RY407 (trailer) tires in size 445/50R22.5, YTC said.
“Now our fleet and owner-operator customers can get our ultra-wide-base tires and technology at more locations,” said Rick Phillips, YTC senior director, commercial and OTR sales.
“Love’s Travel Stops have been in business for 50 years and are open seven days a week, 24 hours a day to service fleets. This will assist in minimizing a driver’s downtime by having these products available when they need them the most. Plus, Love’s is a Yokohama SmartSolution-certified service provider.”
Love's has carried Yokohama-brand tires at its outlets since 2010.
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.||
