Customers with tire-related questions can find answers on a new blog introduced by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co.
“This unique blog gives fleets and owner-operators an opportunity to interact with Tim Miller, Goodyear’s ‘Tire Answer Man,’” said Bruce Woodruff, director of business solutions marketing, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.
Miller has more than 30 years of commercial tire experience and is the marketing communications manager for Goodyear’s commercial tire business.
“Having spent his career working with original equipment truck manufacturers, fleets and owner-operators in a variety of capacities from engineering to national account sales, Tim will draw upon his vast knowledge of the tire and trucking industries to discuss issues that are important to transportation professionals,” said Woodruff.
Features of the blog include regularly updated entries covering a wide range of truck and truck tire-related topics, such as wide-base tires, the importance of selecting the right on-highway service provider, the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program, and others; a calendar that lists “The Tire Answer Man’s” live trade show appearances; a feature that lets readers submit questions; an interactive poll; and trucking industry headlines, plus links to trucking magazine trade journal websites.
“Along with products and services, information is a pillar of Goodyear's fleetHQ program,” said Woodruff. “Through this blog, we want to provide useful information that will help fleet owners and truck drivers make better business decisions.”
