German Monrreal, 19; Mario Godina, 19; Estevan Castillo, 20; and Roberto Fuentes, 19, are accused of arson and killing Carlos Jimenez, 17; Rodrigo Gonzalez, 17; and Destiny Aguirre, 18, by throwing Molotov cocktails at Cheque Tires on April 25, detectives stated.

If you could boil this year's Continental Tire GOLD member meeting into one takeaway, it's that the tire manufacturer is putting a whole lot of effort into listening and responding to its dealer base. Continental doesn't own company stores, so building a strong value proposition around the company's brands and products with its distributors and retailers is the most effective path to success. To maximize the mutual benefits of this partnership, Continental leadership says acting on the will of its dealer base – whether that's about product, programs, distribution, or anything else – is paramount.
