Wingfoot Commercial Tire has opened two new truck maintenance centers in Russellville, Ark., and Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Russellville facility is at 185 Interstate Road on Interstate 40, Exit 184, adjacent to Flying J. The Tuscaloosa facility is at 4400 Skyland Blvd. E. on Interstate 20/59, Exit 76, at Pilot Travel Center.
Both will provide trucking fleets with preventive maintenance service, including oil changes, and light mechanical service such as brake, electrical and heating/air conditioning repairs. In addition, the Wingfoot Truck Care Centers offer new tires and retreads, as well as roadside assistance.
“I-20 and I-40 are two of the most important east-west arteries in the U.S., and locating these centers here will bring our fleet maintenance services closer to where they’re needed,” says Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations. “We are committed to helping lower our customers’ tire and maintenance-related operating costs by making our services, products and information available in more locations throughout the United States.”
Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems, a subsidiary of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., operates more than 140 commercial tire sales, service and retread facilities nationwide. In addition, Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems now has 35 on-highway Truck Care Centers operating in 15 states. Besides offering tires and maintenance services, Wingfoot Truck Care Centers provide tire management tools and business solutions for fleets.
