DETROIT, Mich. — RoboTire, a Detroit-based robotics and automation company, has implemented its tire-changing system at a Discount Tire store in Arlington, Texas. This installation marks the second application of RoboTire’s innovative technology with Discount Tire. Discount Tire is a leading independent retailer of tires and wheels with over 1,100 stores and more in Texas than any other state.
