Yokohama Tire Corporation has been named the “preferred tire vendor” for Gemini Motor Transport, Love’s primary fuel hauler. Gemini will now run on Yokohama’s 101ZL Spec-2 steer tires, 902L UWB drive tires and RY407 UWB trailer tires. All three tires are EPA SmartWay-verified.

“We’re honored Gemini Motor Transport selected us to be their preferred tire vendor,” said Tommy Bazzell, Yokohama director of national fleet, truck stop and commercial OEM business. “They are an exceptional trucking company with more than 550 tractor/trailer combinations and 900 professional drivers.”
