Michelin Shown the Door at Speedco
US truck fast fit chain Speedco, majority owned by Bridgestone Bandag LLC, announced on February 15 that it would phase out Michelin as the premium tyre brand offered at its outlets, replacing the range with products from Bridgestone and Firestone. The company reports that truck tyres from the Bridgestone family will join Bandag retreads at the 51 Speedco locations throughout the US.
“Our customers appreciate the speed in which we return them to the road, and they come back for the value and the quality,” commented Speedco president Mark Clark. “The addition of the Bridgestone and Firestone brands enhances our offering with best-in-class tyres in the popular sizes our customers are looking for.”
