Wingfoot Commercial Tire has opened a truck care center in Matthews, Mo. Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., operates more than 140 commercial tire sales, service and retread facilities nationwide. With the new service center in Matthews, Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems has 37 on-highway Truck Care Centers operating in 15 states.
The Matthews service center is located at 701 State Hwy 80 on Interstate 55, Exit 58, on the Flying J property. The truck care center provides trucking fleets with preventtive maintenance service, including oil changes, and light mechanical service, including brake, electrical and heating/air conditioning repairs. In addition, the center offers new and retreaded tires, along with 24/7 roadside assistance.
“Matthews is strategically located on I-55 between St. Louis and Memphis and offers drivers a hassle-free place to stop and have work done on their trucks without facing the heavier traffic near the larger cities on that corridor,” says Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations. “We plan to continue our expansion across the U.S., making our services, products and information available in more locations.”
