“Piedmont Truck Tire is known for quality products and superb customer service,” said John D. McCarthy Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service. “We are proud to be affiliated with Dan and his team, and we welcome them into the McCarthy Tire family.”

I want to thank all of our employees, customers, and vendors for their loyalty, and I hope they will continue into the future with us and with McCarthy Tire.”
