Greenville, SC. (August 23, 2012) – Michelin Americas Truck Tires today announced an agreement with TravelCenters of America (TA), operator of the TA and Petro Stopping Centers branded travel centers, that will add even more MICHELIN X One tire availability to the existing strong network of servicing dealers and travel plazas. These additional TA/Petro locations will expand the total number of MICHELIN X One servicing dealers to nearly 2000 locations nationwide.
“TA has a comprehensive offering for drivers and fleets. Michelin is looking forward to working with the TA/Petro network to offer the fuel and weight savings benefits of the MICHELIN X One tire to their customers,” said Vic Koelsch, chief operating officer, Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “Through the MICHELIN® ONCall™ network, fleets running MICHELIN X One tires have comparable road availability to that of our dual tires. The addition of over 200 TA locations and 450 service trucks will strengthen MICHELIN X One’s coverage even more, helping increase our customers’ uptime and solidifying the X One tire as an overall solution.”
TA will be offering several MICHELIN® X One® tire offerings including the MICHELIN® X One® XDA® ENERGY, X One® XDN®2, and X One® XTA® in the 445/50R22.5 size and the MICHELIN® X One® XTE® in the 455/55R22.5 size at over 200 travel centers across the United States beginning in September.
