Love’s is in the midst of expanding its Truck Tire Care center, which offers heavy-duty tire care, including TirePass, an inspection service for professional drivers; light mechanical services; and roadside assistance.
The program will roll out to more travel-stop locations and offer additional services, including oil changes and maintenance for transmission and gear boxes.
“The reason we’re pushing so hard on that is because we see a tremendous future for Love’s in the heavy-truck tire business,” Love said. “In addition to that, last year, we wandered into a totally different field related to tires when we went into the distribution center business.”
The company built distribution centers in Atlanta, Indianapolis, Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, and Kingman, Ariz.
“We think we can become one of the most significant players in North America in commercial tires and light mechanical services,” Love said.
