January 27, 2014 (Newswire) - towPartners announced today that it has recently partnered with Michelin to be the primary supplier for the towPartners tire program. This program brings a simple process to towPartners members, allowing them to setup an account directly with Michelin and to receive the towPartners pricing on their purchases. This new member pricing is very aggressive and is expected to add significant value to the towPartners membership as well as to provide new sales for Michelin through the partnership.
The new tire program being offered to towPartners members is geared toward member companies with fleets who purchase tires from local dealers. Using the program, towPartners members receive tremendous discounts on the tires they purchase and still have access to the local dealer network for delivery of tires as well as mounting, balancing and other tire related services. Participation is limited to current towPartners members whose fleets represent hundreds of thousands of tires in use every day.

The towPartners Michelin program will offer towPartners members the full line of Michelin tire products at a great savings.
