Posted on May 19, 2014

Harvey Brodsky, managing director of the Retread Tire Association (RTA), will be taping a Land Line Now radio segment on Tuesday, May 20, 2014, about truck tires produced in China. It is not yet known when it will air.

It is one of several segments on truck tire issues he will be taping on May 20. The others include the economic and environmental benefits of truck tire retreading.

“I am always happy to tape segments regarding tire care and maintenance for both new tires and retreads and especially to discuss the many economic and environmental benefits retreads offer to truckers," says Brodsky. "In fact, I welcome input from any RTA new tire manufacturer members regarding Chinese truck tire features that they would like me to mention next Tuesday.

Brodsky is a regular contributor on Land Line Now daily news and information for truckers. The program is heard on Siriusxm Satellite Radio Channel 128.

Brodsky’s segments are played several days after his tapings and also can be heard on www.landlinenow.com by listening to the "Podcast Episodes."
