TravelCenters of America creates truck service tire network

By Land Line staff | 11/7/2016

TravelCenters of America, operator of the TA and Petro Stopping Centers, has created a monster – monster independent commercial tire dealer, that is.

The Westlake, Ohio-based travel center corporation has formed the TA Truck Service Commercial Tire Network, significantly expanding TA’s commercial tire business. TA claims the network is now the largest in the nation.

TA Executive Vice President Barry Richards made the announcement last week at the SEMA Show Complex. SEMA is the annual Specialty Equipment Manufacturers show held every year in Las Vegas.

All TA Truck Service centers now carry full lines of tires from Bridgestone, Michelin, Goodyear, Continental, and Samson. TA Truck Service also offers premium and economy Goodyear retread lines.

In addition to its traditional retail and national account offering, TA has already added tire brands, including Cooper Tire Roadmaster, Goodyear Marathon and Kelly, and expects to add others soon, including BF Goodrich, Pirelli and Formula by Pirelli. TA has also expanded the array of tire brands available through both its RoadSquad emergency roadside service and its growing “OnSite” mobile maintenance service.

Whether steers, drives or trailer tires, customers can choose to have them delivered anywhere coast to coast across the U.S., pick them up at any TA Truck Service location, or have them installed by an ASE-certified TA Truck Service technician. Truck service technicians are available to install your tires in bay at TA Truck Service facilities. 

The TA Truck Service network includes 243 truck service facilities, 1,079 repair bays, and nearly 3,000 technicians. TA has more than 1,600 RoadSquad Connect emergency assistance roadside vehicles and a growing fleet of OnSite maintenance vehicles.
