Goodyear chairman and CEO Bob Keegan and other company officials visited Belle Tire on Aug. 15 to present anniversary awards.
Belle Tire, which began business in 1922, started with Goodyear in 1958 when it took on the Kelly-Springfield line. Don Barnes, the Kelly salesman who put the deal together, later came on as a partner in Belle Tire, buying 100% ownership in 1984.
Today, Belle Tire operates 80 retail locations across Michigan and northern Ohio, with seven offering commercial tires and service. (Tire Review/Akron)
