Goodyear, ConMet combine tire, wheel-end expertise

Feb. 3, 2021
Collaboration to create digital solutions that better connect commercial truck fleets, improve safety, cost and uptime

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and ConMet say they are collaborating to create combined digital solutions that will better connect commercial truck fleets to the health of their tires and wheel ends.

The two companies will use their combined expertise in connected mobility and their existing data resources to provide fleets with holistic insights on tire and wheel end performance. According to Goodyear and ConMet, the goal is to allow fleets to remotely monitor vehicles in real time, automate insights and make better maintenance decisions in order to improve vehicle safety, as well as maximize efficiency and uptime.

“This exciting collaboration will further Goodyear and ConMet’s shared goal of providing fleets with exceptional service and insights to help optimize their time on the road," said Johnny McIntosh, director of integrated solutions and tire management at Goodyear. “As two leaders in connected mobility, we will continue to work together to innovate and deliver new features and capabilities to our fleet customers into the future.”

Additionally, Goodyear will continue to offer fleets the ability to proactively service their vehicles through Fleet HQ, where they can request 24/7 emergency roadside assistance or dispatch a vehicle to one of Goodyear’s more than 2,300 service locations across North America.

With more than 170 years in combined industry experience, Goodyear and ConMet are on the forefront of connected mobility. With Goodyear’s suite of Complete Tire Management Solutions and ConMet’s PreSet Plus SmartHub system, the two companies say they will work together to advance the way fleets operate.

“ConMet and Goodyear are both committed to using the power of connectivity and sensor technology (IoT) to help commercial vehicles perform more efficiently,” said Beto Dantas, chief technology and innovation officer at ConMet. “This valuable, combined information will help extend tire longevity, maximize performance, keep vehicles on the road and reduce fleets’ unscheduled downtime.”
