Goodyear adds Virginia-based retreader to network

Colonial Tire Distributors has joined the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.’s Goodyear Authorized Retread network. Colonial, based in Richmond, VA, sells new Goodyear commercial truck tires and Goodyear retreads at three locations in Virginia: Richmond, Ashland and Tidewater.

Its fully equipped retread plant in Richmond produces Goodyear precure retreads, including the G572, the G316 AT, and others, according to Bob Barkley, president of Colonial Tire Distributors. 

The company also offers 24/7 emergency roadside assistance through the Goodyear-FleetHQ business solutions program.

“Most of our customers are small-to-mid-size trucking companies, and we do some large fleet work, as well,” said Barkley. “Regardless of their size, fleets want premium products and services that help them lower their overall operating costs.”

“We are proud to welcome Colonial Tire Distributors to the Goodyear Authorized Retread network,” said Todd Labbe, general manager, retread sales, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems. “For many years, this excellent organization has represented us extremely well on the new tire and service side. We are delighted that Mr. Barkley and his management team have selected Goodyear to supply Colonial Tire Distributors with retread products. We look forward to continuing to help Colonial Tire Distributors serve its customer base.”
