CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Aug. 25, 2004) — Continental Tire North America Inc.'s Continental Eco Plus truck tires are now available as an option at Volvo Trucks North America Inc. dealerships in the U.S., the tire maker said.
With this move, trucking professionals will be able to specify the Continental tire when buying a Volvo commercial truck, the tire maker said. Goodyear is Volvo's standard supplier.
“Rising fuel prices have increased the importance of finding ways to lower operating costs and improve the bottom line,” said David Misbrener, Conti's account manager for Volvo. “Continental's Eco Plus tire technology provides impressively low rolling resistance for excellent fuel economy and long original mileage.”
