Video: Local Tire Dealers Doing Business with Yokohama

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Yokohama Tire is coming to Clay County and local tire dealers are looking forward to doing business with them.

Miller’s OK Tire Store in Columbus is already selling Yokohama tires but now the manufacturer will be in Northeast Mississippi. Service Manager Johnny Morris says having the supplier so close will benefit their business and improve customer service.

“Yokohama is a very good tire, very dependable tire. We’ve been selling them for some years. That would be a big boost to this economy and to us. We will have another supplier that’s moving in here and that would help us too,” says Morris.

Yokohama Tire will be based in West Point and is scheduled to open in 2015.
