WASHINGTON (AP) — The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. will supply the U.S. Postal Service with tires for the next decade at a cost of $115 million, the post office announced Thursday.

Goodyear will become the sole supplier of tires for the post office's more than 200,000 trucks, vans and delivery vehicles with the start of the new fiscal year in October, officials said.

The agency now buys tires from Goodyear, Bridgestone-Firestone and Michelin North America.

Under the deal, the post office is expected to buy some 235,000 tires annually over 10 years.
