AKRON, OH — The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has unveiled a new commercial tire Web site that showcases its service business push. The www.goodyear.com/truck / launch coincides with a new study that shows trucking companies are increasingly outsourcing tire and equipment maintenance work. Transportation research and consulting firm Havill & Co. noted that a boom in maintenance providers over the past five years has shifted the focus of many trucking companies back to their core business. The Web site includes more powerful tire-evaluation software tools now available to fleets, new emergency roadside service, and a wealth of information on tire inflation and load capacities. As part of Goodyear’s renewed focus on service, its new Web site addresses the following solutions, with shortcuts on the home page to lead customers to information more quickly:

  • Fleetwise detailed tire analysis makes fleet tire data available 24 hours a day.
  • TVTRACK software tracks performance of specific tires and links data to key vehicle parameters.
  • Tire Value Calc software calculates new tire, retread, and rotation changes that impact operating costs.
  • Safety tips and load/inflation tables help maximize tire wear and performance.
  • Reduced downtime and costs for tire-related emergencies through 4-TIRES-NOW roadside assistance.
  • Detailed service manuals specify tire inflation, vibration solutions, and proper alignment.
