Love’s grows tire and maintenance services


Love’s Travel Stops, since acquiring Speedco late last year, has expanded its over-the-road tire and preventive maintenance network to be the largest in the nation, according to Dan Jensen, Love’s director of tire sales and service.

Jensen says the company now offers 340 locations that offer either tire or preventive maintenance services with 280 of those offering oil changes.

“Before the acquisition, Speedco was mostly oil changes and preventive maintenance,” Jensen said Thursday at the Great American Trucking Show. “We’ve now added tire offerings at those locations and are rolling out putting mechanics at all locations for light maintenance.”

Jensen says its maintenance services include work on belts and hoses, lights, air conditioning, minor electrical, wheel ends and brakes and more. He adds that they don’t work on engines or transmissions.

Love’s is also expanding its tire offerings at its Love’s Truck Tire Care locations that are available at any of the chain’s travel centers.
