UMA announces tire sales member program

Posted on November 20, 2014

The United Motorcoach Association (UMA) partnered with Motorcoach Tire Sales LLC to provide UMA member companies exclusive discounted pricing on the Toyo M144 coach tire.

Motorcoach Tire Sales offers direct shipping from Toyo distribution centers to the operator's front door. This unique model streamlines the tire purchasing process and enables Motorcoach Tire Sales to provide aggressive pricing for UMA members.

The Toyo M144 coach tire is designed specifically for the motorcoach industry, with a higher load rating than industry standard and other proprietary features to ensure long wear and a smooth ride. The Toyo M144 coach tire is available in three different sizes. There is a 14 tire minimum order, however smaller orders may be available through participating member operators.

"We are pleased to be able to offer our members another money-savings benefit and this is a great addition to our member programs," said UMA President/CEO Victor Parra. "With Bill Kaiser's experience in the industry and Motorcoach Tires Sales' unique and streamlined distribution model, not to mention Toyo Tires' excellent performance reviews, this program will no doubt be beneficial to our operators' bottom-lines."

UMA members interested in learning more about the program can contact Bill Kaiser at Motorcoach Tire Sales LLC at 678.463.4110 or email, or visit the members-only section of
