The ``Tire brands at a glance'' table in the May 13 issue contained two errors: Tyres International Inc. of Akron shares import rights to the Matador truck tire brand with Dunlap & Kyle, not American Omni Trading as reported. Also, Tyres International shares marketing rights to the Mitas brand.
Additionally, GT Tire USA still imports and markets the GT Radial brand from Indonesia's Gajah Tunggal; this was omitted from the database.
In the same issue's Associate Brands directory, the dealer contact at Michelin North America Inc. is no longer Thom Peebles, but is now Tim Jamison, marketing director of associate brands, at (864) 458-4943.

In the May 13 issue's story about the acquisition of Salt Lake City-based Dick Morrison Tire Co. and its Grandma's Tires retail locations by a group of Big O Tires Inc. franchisees, the dealership's president Craig Morrison stated that his wholesale operation and distribution center were purchased by Big O and its parent, Memphis, Tenn.-based TBC Corp.
However, Big O President John Adams said neither Big O nor TBC has any agreement to operate the warehouse or wholesale business-both were purchased by Big O franchisee Mark Buker.
