What do fleets expect from their tires?

By Team Writer / June 16, 2017

Fleets need good tires. If they don’t have those they will face many issues such as flats and the need to patch or replace tires. If you are getting together a fleet you need to get good tires and this will help. Choose carefully and you’ll have more success and will also save money on repairs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Commercial tires are designed to be retreaded multiple times. In a pure line haul operation, steer tires may reach up to 200,000 miles.
  • It is important for fleets to evaluate the various tire models to determine which tires give the highest treadwear in their specific fleet operation.
  • If tires are not being worn smoothly and evenly and the tires are bouncing down the highway, fuel economy is adversely affected.

“Cost per mile over the lifetime of the tire casing should be the ultimate factor in the decision.”
