The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has selected Tredit Tire & Wheel Company Inc. as its national distributor of trailer tires to Goodyear’s manufacturing customer base in the recreational vehicle, cargo, horse/livestock, boat and utility industries.
According to a press release, the Akron, Ohio-based company will provide its Marathon line of trailer tires to Tredit, which will distribute and supply mounted tire-and-wheel assemblies to manufacturers.
Goodyear said it has a longstanding supply relationship with Tredit, also based in Akron.
“For Goodyear, the benefit is an opportunity to increase sales of our top Marathon line, and to achieve more OE fitments on recreational and utility trailers,” said Mike Parnell, Goodyear’s vice president, OE tires.
In the aftermarket, Goodyear said it will continue with its nationwide dealer network to sell replacement tires to trailer owners.
