Belle Tire Expands With New Michigan Facility

Belle Tire Distributors opens its 89th retail store location Saturday, Feb. 8, in Fort Gratiot, Mich.
The new store measures 10,000-square-foot, housing 10 service bays. It includes two full-alignment pits and a mezzanine warehouse that holds more than 3,000 tires. The new location joins Belle Tire Port Huron to offer tires, custom wheels, automotive repair and auto glass services to the community.
Manager Mark Abbey leads the new Fort Gratiot location as an experienced professional who most recently served as manager of Belle Tire’s Chesterfield, Mich., location. Abbey began his career in the tire and automotive industry 28 years ago, and looks forward to serving American and Canadian customers at Belle Tire’s newest store.
Abbey said the store will offer complimentary services to motorists in the community regardless if they purchased tires from Belle Tire, including free flat repairs, alignment checks and battery checks. The location also has a free air pump. The new Fort Gratiot team is equipped to assist customers with tires, custom wheels, alignments, brakes, batteries, oil changes, shocks and struts, windshield repair and replacement.
