                     The city needs a manufacturer-authorized tire removal and installation service provider to service Michelin tires installed on city fire apparatus and vehicles.

                     Services include the replacement of damaged or worn tires as needed and the repair of damaged tires when possible. These services are typically performed as part of service calls performed by the vendor at roadside locations throughout Charlotte or by vendor staff at the city’s Fleet Management shops.

                     Snider is the only Michelin-authorized service provider for Michelin heavy truck tires in the Charlotte metro area. Michelin tires are required to ensure replaced tires match exactly in specification and type with the original equipment tires that are included in all Charlotte Fire Department fire trucks and apparatus.

                     A waiver of a competitive solicitation process for services may be granted on a limited basis when deemed appropriate and in the city’s best interest.

                     A waiver has been approved for these services based on the need for a manufacture-authorized service provider and this vendor is the only one meeting this requirement in the Charlotte metro area.

§                     Annual expenditures are estimated to be $400,000.
