Vehicle noises and vibration can be a big challenge for service technicians.
Proven tire maintenance practices go a long way toward extending tread life on fleet vehicles. Phil Mosier, Cooper Tire’s manager of commercial tire development, points out that maintaining proper inflation pressures is the best thing a shop manager can focus on to ensure long-lasting and even-wearing tires.
Keeping tires inflated to the proper pressure helps to improve tire life, fuel mileage and vehicle safety. Obviously, there are a good number of tires to check and maintain on a tractor and trailer. It takes time to check and balance the air pressure on 18 or more wheels.
