AKRON (Sept. 26)—Tire Centers L.L.C., the commercial tire distribution and retreading subsidiary of Michelin North America Inc., is launching a branded identification program for its passenger and light truck tire associate dealers. The new program, known as T3 Certified Tire Centers, encompasses a new private brand tire line, a common market identity package and a portfolio of marketing, advertising, training and business services.

Tire Centers L.L.C. has targeted between 125 and 150 dealers across the country who are wholesale customers to become the backbone of a nationwide T3 dealer network.
