Technician Meeting



How Well Do Your Technicians Know Them?

Can your Technicians answer the following questions?


1) Is My Steer Tire Rated For My Load?

2) Why Do I Need To Run This Certain Air Pressure? A Few Pounds Off Wont Matter.

3) Is This Retread Going To Come Apart?

4) What Does The Wear Pattern In This Tire Mean? Is It Good Or Bad? Can It Be Fixed? 


If not, please encourage them to attend our tire talk seminar for Technicians. This seminar will give the technicians a true hands on experience to learn what is good and bad, an opportunity to discuss questions with engineers and over gain an understand of what they need to see when they are doing their daily functions on your equipment.
