Owner-operators can now take advantage of consistent tire pricing and access to the Michelin's commercial service network through the Michelin Advantage Program.
Previously available only to small fleets, Michelin's Advantage Program is now available to single-truck operators as well. All they need to qualify is a major credit card.

"We've seen the popularity of the Michelin Advantage Program increase significantly as more and more people are realizing that you don't have to be a big fleet to get an advantage or have a relationship with Michelin," said Fritz Mueller, small fleet business segment manager Michelin Americas Truck Tires. "For example, in January 2011, Michelin doubled the number of customers who signed up for this program compared to the same month last year. Now, more trucking professionals that operate their own business will have additional opportunities to control their costs, save time and improve their safety."

At home or on the road, the Michelin Advantage Program provides consistent program pricing on both new tire products and Michelin retreaded tires.

Program members also have access to Michelin OnCall emergency road service with no dispatch fee. Using the anytime, any-day service by calling 1 (800) TIRE-911, customers can get their truck back on the road quickly, saving them time and money.

Members receive unique access to the Michelin Commercial Service Network, which provides consistent service from Network dealers with highly trained technicians, professional equipment, and casing management, all ensured by rigorous certification and audit standards.

The Advantage Program also supplies members with access to valuable resources on the Advantage Program website, which provides training information and maintenance tips and techniques. Along with regular e-newsletter updates on news, product updates and promotions, new in 2011 are quarterly webcasts on important tire topics, such as CSA 2010, tire casing analysis and more, which members can view and also download to help them maintain safe truck operations.
