DES PLAINES, Ill., (May 9, 2005) — Wheels Inc. and Goodyear's Just Tires retail chain are joining forces to offer an on-the-go tire installation program for fleets in the Chicago area.
Just Tires' Tire Valet service features specialized trucks that will come to the fleet driver's home or office to install and balance new tires, typically in less than 30 minutes.

And, we are happy to be partnering with Just Tires to provide this service to our clients' Chicago-area drivers."
