Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores will celebrate the opening of its 100th truck tire care center with a three-day customer appreciation event July 12-14. Love’s began adding truck tire care centers to new and existing travel stops in 2008 and plans to add 50 tire care centers to locations as a part of its 2011 planned capital expenditures.

Love’s truck tire care centers sell new and used Michelin, BFGoodrich, Yokohama and Double Coin truck tires and offer tire alignments, rotations, changes and more. Love’s technicians are trained to install or replace anything from antennas to batteries and mudflaps.

“Love’s vision for truck tire care centers is to provide professional drivers with superior tire care services to get them back on the road quickly,” says Tom Love, president and chief executive officer. Our 100th truck tire care opening reflects the growth and success of offering tire services at Love’s locations. We plan to continue our growth and look forward to providing more drivers convenience and excellent service to keep them safe on the road.”

The grand opening event will kick off on Tuesday, July 12, with a ribbon cutting in partnership with the Marion County Chamber of Commerce.
