Goodyear Complete Tire Management Tools Inspect 4mln tyres

With its Complete Tire Management tools, Goodyear Tire inspected around four million tyres, helping fleets proactively identify potential tire issues and improve overall fleet operations, in one year.

These Complete Tire Management solutions include Goodyear Tire Optix, Goodyear TPMS Plus and Goodyear CheckPoint, all of which monitor conditions like tyre pressure, temperature and treadwear and alert fleets to irregularities. The company said some of the tools haven already been in the market, it officially relaunched as a collective offering called Goodyear Complete Tire Management at its North America Customer Conference in February of last year.

Goodyear Tire Optix: This digital inspection toolset helps fleets quickly and accurately detect critical tyre data, such as tyre pressure, tread depth and tyre wear conditions. With real-time alerts and detailed inspection results, Goodyear Tire Optix helps fleets optimize their long-term tyre performance.

Goodyear CheckPoint: The drive-over reader device provides automated inspections of tyre pressure and tread depth. Positioned at a fleet yard entrance, this in-ground device scans passing trucks and triggers alerts to fleet maintenance if there are any immediate tyre concerns that require attention. This solution enables large numbers of vehicles to be inspected efficiently and offers a frequently updated snapshot of tyre health.

Goodyear TPMS Plus: This on-vehicle, active monitoring system evaluates tyre conditions in real-time using Goodyear’s unique, fleet-specific algorithms. TPMS Plus helps fleets identify critical issues, such as tyre air leaks and high temperatures, while also providing predictive tyre maintenance analytics to help reduce tyre related roadside breakdowns.

“As professional truck drivers work overtime amid COVID-19 to keep the supply chain moving, fleets have depended on Goodyear’s Complete Tire Management to protect their tyre investments and keep drivers on the road, safely,” said Johnny McIntosh, Goodyear’s director, Integrated Solutions and Tire Management. “Goodyear Complete Tire Management has identified nearly 400,000 potential tyre issues like underinflation or worn tread in its flagship year, helping fleets quickly address areas of concern before they lead to larger problems like irregular tyre wear or damage. These services have saved fleets both time and money.”
