  2. Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network. The company’s network offers more than 2,300 tire and service locations from coast to coast, including both Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers and authorized Goodyear commercial tire dealerships.
  3. Services. Services include the 24/7 Goodyear-Fleet HQ Emergency Roadside Service program, which Goodyear says has helped more than one million trucks return to service.
  4. Fleet management tools. Among tools to be highlighted are Goodyear’s Tire Trac online tire management program, which helps fleets monitor tire installations and performance while identifying tire maintenance opportunities.

 “Attendees also will be able to access our interactive Goodyear Total Solution kiosk, which will help them identify a custom Total Solution that is right for them,” said Medalis.
