CAYUGA, Ind. (Aug. 6, 2004) — Speedco Inc., an on-highway truck lube provider that is 87.5-percent owned by Bandag Inc., will begin selling Goodyear, Michelin and Yokohama tires plus Bandag retreads at its 32 stores within the next two years.
Speedco said its stores in Amarillo and El Paso, Texas, and in Atlanta already are offering the products. Bandag bought the majority share in the company in February.
“We are taking the Speedco way of consistent and efficient service and expanding it to tires,” said Mark Clark, president and CEO. “We are complementing our lube services with quality tire service and premium tire brands because we know that tire maintenance is a key part of a sound preventive maintenance program.”
The tires will be supplied by dealers in close proximity to the Speedco outlets, the company said. Bandag dealers will supply the retreads.
Speedco's other services include service packages that feature tire examinations to check tread depths, air pressure and proper torquing of wheel fasteners. Individual services such as tire inspection, replacement and repair, air-up services and wheel balances also are offered.
