Goodyear ready to help truckers pass Roadcheck

May 15, 2017
With the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck truck and bus enforcement program coming up, there has never been a better time for fleets and owner-operators to schedule tire and truck inspections.

With the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck truck and bus enforcement program coming up, there has never been a better time for fleets and owner-operators to schedule tire and truck inspections.

With nearly 200 locations—including 45 conveniently located, on-highway facilities—throughout the United States, Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers (CTSCs) offer yard checks, Goodyear Trailer-Readiness inspections and other services to help ensure that tires and trucks are in optimal working order.

CTSC locations are part of the Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network, which also includes independently owned commercial tire dealerships. In total, this network has more than 2,300 locations nationwide.

Nearly 63,000 inspections were conducted during summer 2016’s CVSA International Roadcheck event. Tire and wheel violations accounted for 18.5% of all out-of-service violations identified during the three-day program, said CVSA officials.

“This underscores the importance of proactive tire inspection and maintenance—and with hundreds of locations, Goodyear’s CTSC facilities stand ready to help fleets and owner-operators ensure the safety of their commercial trucks,” said Frank Payne, director, CTSC.

This year’s CVSA International Roadcheck, which takes place June 6-8, will focus on cargo securement. However, inspectors also will examine tire pressure, tread depth and overall tire condition during the event.

CTSC locations also offer Goodyear Trailer-Readiness inspections, during which trained tire professionals inspect trailer lights, wheel seals, reflective tape, mud flaps and other items. Findings are then made available to fleets and owner-operators through a secure online portal.

“Like our yard checks, Goodyear Trailer-Readiness inspections can help identify issues that drivers might miss during their daily inspections,” said Payne.

In addition, CTSC locations offer transmission, brake, shock, bearing, coolant, U-joint and windshield wiper inspections, among other preventive maintenance services.
