Comprehensive suite of products helps truck drivers and fleets reduce downtime and save money
AKRON, Ohio, March 22, 2021 – In one year, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company's Complete Tire Management tools have inspected nearly 4 million tires¹, helping fleets proactively identify potential tire issues and improve overall fleet operations.
These Complete Tire Management solutions include Goodyear Tire Optix, Goodyear TPMS Plus and Goodyear CheckPoint, all of which monitor conditions like tire pressure, temperature and treadwear and alert fleets to irregularities so they can prevent a roadside breakdown. While some of these tools have been in the market for several years, the company officially relaunched as a collective offering called Goodyear Complete Tire Management at its North America Customer Conference in February of last year.
“As professional truck drivers work overtime amid COVID-19 to keep the supply chain moving, fleets have depended on Goodyear’s Complete Tire Management to protect their tire investments and keep drivers on the road, safely,” said Johnny McIntosh, Goodyear’s director, Integrated Solutions and Tire Management. “Goodyear Complete Tire Management has identified nearly 400,000 potential tire issues like underinflation or worn tread in its flagship year, helping fleets quickly address areas of concern before they lead to larger problems like irregular tire wear or damage. These services have saved fleets both time and money.”
Complete Tire Management is one of three pillars in Goodyear’s Total Mobility offering for fleets, along with the company’s trusted products and premier service network across North America. Currently, three Goodyear Complete Tire Management solutions are available in the market:
