The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company announced that it will now offer customized leasing options for Goodyear CheckPoint.
Goodyear CheckPoint is a drive-over-reader device that automatically inspects tire pressure and tread depth. It also sends actionable insights to fleet managers.
The new leasing options will make Goodyear CheckPoint more accessible to Goodyear national account fleets of all sizes throughout the U.S. and Canada.
“Goodyear CheckPoint is designed to help fleets to better maintain their tires by keeping pressure at optimal levels, which can extend both casing life and tread wear,” said Johnny McIntosh, director, Goodyear Integrated Tire Solutions. “This can add up to significant cost savings, as improper air pressure causes about 85% of tire failures1, which often result in unanticipated and costly roadside breakdowns.”
The Goodyear CheckPoint in-ground device automatically scans passing trucks and triggers alerts to fleet maintenance teams if there are tire concerns. This solution enables vehicles to be inspected and offers an update of a fleet’s overall tire program health.
The device delivered a 90% reduction in time taken to inspect fleet tire depth and pressure, according to a recent study.
Goodyear CheckPoint devices in North America have automatically inspected over 1.5 million tires and alerted fleets to 126,000 potential issues.
