"Unfortunately not a simple flip of a switch. Won't see the benefits of the extra manning on the banners until the folks are trained."

2016 July Ticket

We had our 1st look at the July ticket last week and the good news is it is up around 450 tires a day or so from what we are currently producing. The challenge we have is that the largest increase is in our small bias areas. July’s ticket in this area is higher than it has been all year. We did schedule this area last Saturday as sales on these tires continue to be above the forecasted sales our monthly tickets are based on. We are backordered on quite a few of these sizes. We are calling back…See More

National Tire Safety Week

You check your email and local weather report every day, but how often do you remember to check your tires?

A recent survey commissioned by Bridgestone, revealed that only 41 percent of Americans view tires as one of the three most important safety features of a vehicle, despite being the only part to touch the ground. Drivers also are not checking their tires for road-readiness as carefully as they should be. While 58 percent of drivers have checked their tire pressure in the past three months, only 38 percent have checked their tire tread depth in the same time frame. 

In recognition of the Rubber Manufacturers Association’s (RMA) National Tire Safety Week (May 29 - June 4, 2016), Bridgestone Americas is encouraging teammates and the Boss to prepare their tires for the busy summer driving season. Properly maintained tires can optimize performance, enhance fuel economy and extend their wear and service life. 

National Tire Safety Week is an industry-wide initiative led by the RMA. Bridgestone Americas is a member of the RMA, and Gary Garfield, Chairman, President and CEO of Bridgestone Americas, is the Chairman of the organization’s Board of Directors. 

“At Bridgestone Americas, we’re committed to being a good corporate citizen, and raising awareness for the importance of tire safety is one key way we can help improve the lives of those we serve with our products,” said Gordon Knapp, Chief Operating Officer, Bridgestone Americas. “This is an ongoing educational effort that we support not only during National Tire Safety Week or the busy summer travel season, but each and every day.”

To ensure your tires remain in good shape, follow this three-step safety plan: 

  • Inflate: Use a tire pressure gauge to check tire pressure at least once each month, as well as before long trips or when carrying extra load. A lot of drivers depend on their tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to warn them if there is a sudden change in their tire pressure. TPMS is a great tool, but it doesn’t replace the need for regular, routine tire pressure checks with a tire pressure gauge. 
  • Rotate: Rotate your tires regularly to help prevent irregular and premature wear. Tires should be rotated and balanced according to the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations found in the vehicle owner's manual or every 5,000 miles.

Evaluate: Look for signs of tread wear or damage. Drivers should check tread depth to make sure their tires have enough traction to grip the road. Use a tread depth gauge or the “penny test.”
