FREDERICK, Md. (May 27, 2014) — Rice Tire Co. has opened its 10th location with the purchase of Montgomery Tire Service Inc. in Gaithersburg, Md.
A Rice Tire spokesperson said the dealership has refurbished the interior and exterior of the store to make it more attractive and added new alignment equipment. The outlet has eight service bays and provides a new market for the dealership.
Rice Tire is involved in the wholesale, retail, commercial and retreading businesses and operates five stores in Maryland, four in Virginia and one in Washington, D.C.
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.||
