RMA moves National Tire Safety Week to June
The Rubber Manufacturers Association's National Tire Safety Week will be held June 7-13, 2009. The event is part of the association's "Be Tire Smart - Play Your PART" program.
Previously, National Tire Safety Week, an annual event, had been held in April.
More than 19,000 tire dealers, auto dealers and automotive repair shops participated in the 2008 National Tire Safety Week.
"Each year, we continue to see more tire and auto industry retail locations join in the effort to help educate motorists about the benefits of regular tire maintenance," says Dan Zielinski, RMA senior vice president.
Parties interested in obtaining free RMA materials for National Tire Safety Week can order them online at www.betiresmart.org.
"Those who have participated in the event before can expect to receive materials again this year," say RMA officials.
