TravelCenters of America announced the formation of the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network to meet increased customer demand for flexible, efficient sourcing of commercial tires.

“We have significantly expanded the ways in which we may sell tires and the tires that we may sell to our customers,” Tom O’Brien, CEO of TravelCenters, said. “In addition to our traditional retail and ‘national account’ offering, we have already added tire brands, including Cooper Tire Roadmaster, Goodyear Marathon and Kelly, and expect to add others soon, including BF Goodrich, Pirelli and Formula by Pirelli.”

Also, many of the tires in its lineup now will be available for pick-up by customers, delivery at customer locations and through direct sales.

TravelCenters also expanded the array of tire brands available through both its RoadSquad emergency roadside service and growing OnSITE mobile maintenance service, the Westlake, Ohio-based company said, noting it has been in the truck stop tire business for over 40 years.

The company said it believes the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network is the largest independent commercial tire dealer in the United States. The network includes 243 truck service facilities, 1,079 repair bays, nearly 3,000 technicians, more than 1,600 RoadSquad Connect emergency roadside assistance vehicles and a growing fleet of OnSITE mobile maintenance vehicles.
