OKLAHOMA CITY (July 9, 2013) — Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores will start stocking Bridgestone- and Firestone-brand truck tires at the chain's 175 locations with truck tire service, thanks to an agreement between Love's and Bridgestone Commercial Solutions.
"Our fleet customers want easy accessibility to trusted Bridgestone and Firestone products throughout the U.S. highway system," said Kurt Danielson, president, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions. "The addition of Love's Travel Stops to Bridgestone's truckstop network is a direct result of numerous customer requests."
Tom Love, Oklahoma City-based Love's chairman and CEO, said Love's Truck Tire Care is an "integral service" offered at the chain's stops with truck tire service and described Bridgestone- and Firestone-brand tires as a "natural fit" to the products available.
Love's also sells Michelin-, BF Goodrich-, Yokohama- and Aeolus-brand truck tires and Michelin Retread Technologies-sourced retreads.
Bridgestone and Firestone tires are also available at more than 220 T/A and Petro Stopping Centers locations through at least 2014, according to a deal Bridgestone signed in 2008 with TravelCenters of America L.L.C.
