Wingfoot Commercial Systems, a subsidiary of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., expanded its on-highway service network footprint with the recent opening of a Wingfoot Truck Care Center in Winslow, Ariz. The full-service 10,400-square-foot facility, Wingfoot network’s 42nd Wingfoot Truck Care Center, provides 24/7 roadside assistance; new Goodyear and Dunlop truck tires, plus retreaded tires; oil changes and other preventive maintenance services; and light mechanical services, including brake, electrical and heating/air conditioning repair.
The outlet, which employs nine people, has three service bays, each dedicated to a different type of service. One bay is mainly used for tire replacement and tire-related services, another is devoted to light mechanical work, and the third bay has a full-length oil change pit; ii also serves as the location’s express lube bay.
“The Winslow Wingfoot Truck Care Center is located on a Flying J property at Exit 255 along Interstate 40, a major shipping route that stretches from California to North Carolina,” says Paul Wanstreet, president of Wingfoot. “Our customers asked us to be on I-40 so we can provide them with the premium products and services they need to keep their trucks rolling.”
Wingfoot Truck Care Centers, along with Boss Truck Shops Inc. and Highway Service Ventures/Patriot Farms Flying J, are members of Goodyear’s Uni-Maxx Truck Care network, which encompasses nearly 80 locations throughout the United States.
“Uni-Maxx is dedicated to providing professional on-highway service to every customer,” says Wanstreet. “The addition of Wingfoot Truck Care Centers will play a major role in the expansion of the Uni-Maxx Truck Care network.”
