TireStamp offers customizable tire, wheel maintenance program

Posted on July 17, 2013

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. — TireStamp Inc. has made available a comprehensive tire and wheel maintenance program that is customizable to an individual fleet’s operating needs.   

Each custom tailored program incorporates the latest industry recommended practices and procedures for maintaining commercial truck and bus tires and wheels. In addition, each program will fit a fleet’s specific operations, outsourced tire maintenance and product preferences.  

“A high percentage of for-hire and private carriers as well as bus and motorcoach fleets do not have a documented tire maintenance manual, so their maintenance programs for tires and wheels are not well communicated to their personnel and to their outsourced tire service providers,” said Peggy Fisher, TireStamp president. “As a result, bad practices creep into tire maintenance, and the policies that the fleet believes it has established are not followed by its own maintenance staff nor by its tire dealers and retreaders.”

Fisher went on to say that a written tire and wheel maintenance program can help to eliminate confusion, and it is a reference that helps to ensure the correct maintenance practices are employed by everyone to properly maintain the fleet’s tires and wheels.

To develop a program for a fleet, the operation completes a comprehensive questionnaire that provides information specific to its maintenance operations and product preferences. This information is linked to an automated template that generates the fleet-specific tire and wheel maintenance program that contains the fleet’s own tire and wheel maintenance policies that fit its operation and uses industry best practices.
