Are Your Tires Ready for Roadcheck?

June, 2019

AKRON, OH… To help trucks stay on the road during this year’s Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance International Roadcheck event, which starts on June 4, members of the Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network are offering tire inspections and other tire management services. Tire and wheel issues accounted for 19.1% of all out-of-service violations identified during last year’s Roadcheck event.

The Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network encompasses more than 2,300 locations, including Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers and authorized, independent Goodyear commercial tire dealerships, both of which offer a variety of tire management services. These include yard checks and, in certain locations, inflation and tread depth checks powered by Goodyear’s Tire Optix system.

Part of Goodyear’s Total Solution, Tire Optix enables faster, more accurate tire data collection, automatic uploading of captured information to a cloud-based platform, and instant reporting of data for immediate viewing.

In addition to helping fleets and owner-operators avoid out-of-service violations, proper inflation pressure maintenance can help optimize tire mileage and fuel efficiency. Tread depth checks can help ensure that tires comply with federal regulations and are wearing evenly.

“The tire management experts at our conveniently located Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network locations can help ensure that tires are in optimal condition and are delivering premium performance,” said Johnny McIntosh, general manager, Services and Solutions, Commercial Tires.
