They rubbed me the wrong way years ago. I worked for a nationwide trash hauler. Our purchasing dept started negotiating nationwide price agreements with suppliers of our biggest expenses such as fuel, tires, lubricants, uniforms, etc.
When we discussed spending 20 million or more a year on tires, Bridgestone/Firestone, Goodyear, Kelly-Springfield, etc. even offered to shine our shoes.
Michelin told is if we wanted their tires, we paid their price.
