Goodyear Total Package Solution

Self-sealing truck tires and a service designed to help keep trucks up and running during and after severe weather incidents are just two pieces of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.’s Total Package Solution for utility fleets.

At the Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference held in June, Goodyear displayed its new G751 MSA mixed-service truck tire, including one size of the tire that contains Goodyear’s exclusive DuraSeal Technology. Built into the tire during the manufacturing process, the technology instantly seals nail-hole punctures of up to a quarter-inch in diameter in the reparable area of a tire’s tread.

Also available for utility trucks is the G661 HSA, which offers long mileage and enhanced toughness for high-scrub applications.

Additionally, Goodyear offers its Storm Priority program. Utility truck drivers whose vehicles experience flat tires can call the dedicated Storm Priority hotline to speak with trained tire professionals at the 24/7 Goodyear-FleetHQ Solution Center.

The Goodyear Storm Priority program is offered through the Goodyear-FleetHQ suite of business solutions. Goodyear-FleetHQ also provides a smartphone app that expedites the emergency road call process; access to the industry’s largest network of tire and tire service providers; Tire Trac, an online tire management tool that monitors tire performance and presents key data in an easy-to-access format; and the Goodyear-FleetHQ Dashboard, which presents information about tire, retread and service performance, plus purchase information.
