August MTD looks at wide-base tire repair
As more wide-base truck tires hit the road, more of them will be brought into commercial tire dealerships for both nail hole and section repairs.
What's the proper procedure for repairing wide-base truck tires? Find out in the August 2009 issue of Modern Tire Dealer, available now!
When working with wide-base tires, "the biggest area where people make mistakes or overlook things is initial inspection," says Norm Ball, training manager and director of franchise business services, Michelin Retread Technologies Inc.
"You have to take your time and look, both on the initial inspection and after the buff. You want to make sure there are no cracks that would indicate there's something else going on."
