Vehicle Inspection Systems (VIS), an advocate for heavy duty vehicle, truck and bus safety in the trucking and transportation industry for more than 20 years, has formed a partnership with Atlanta Commercial Tire. The tire dealer had two VIS-Polish automated wheel polishing machines recently installed.

“We invested in the VIS-Polish in an effort to provide a quality, consistent product to our customers in a timely manner,” said Larry Faulkner, VP of sales and marketing for Atlanta Commercial Tire. “The VIS-Polish process helps convey a high quality expectation when customers are evaluating their options for wheel polishing. The impressive, professional appearance of the polishing operation coupled with the tremendous finished product puts us in the best position possible to grow our current business and target new business.”

Atlanta Commercial Tire, a full sized service tire company, started in downtown Atlanta more than 45 years ago.

“We provide commercial truck tires with over 50 service trucks in the state of Georgia to get our customers up and running as quickly as possible,” Faulkner said. “We also have off-the-road tires and service via 4 off the road boom trucks. Atlanta Commercial Tire also sells forklift tires, foam-filled tires and rubber tracks. We have a mobile forklift tire press that allows us to press on forklift tires at our customers’ facilities. Atlanta Commercial Tire has nine locations throughout the state of Georgia and 3 Bandag Retread manufacturing plants. Our additional services include but are not limited to: aluminum wheel polishing, steel wheel refinishing, mounted tire programs, fleet inventory management, fleet inspections and a host of other services related to the tire business.”
