Truckers are invited to contact the Tire Retread Information Bureau (TRIB) for a free copy of its popular "Don't Thump 'em, Pump 'em" poster.

The poster promotes the use of tire gauges as a way to keep truck tires properly maintained. The 17-1/2-inch by 23-inch poster is printed in full color on heavy paper and is suitable for framing.

"We originally offered this poster a number of years ago and have had so many requests for copies since than that we decided to offer it again to truckers who are interested in doing the right thing for their tires," says TRIB Managing Director Harvey Brodsky. "And the right thing is to use a properly calibrated tire gauge on a regular basis instead of a tire thumper.

"Any trucker who thinks he can tell how much air is in a tire by thumping it might as well thump the hood of his cab to determine if his engine needs oil."

A free copy of the TRIB poster can be ordered by calling (888) 473-8732 toll free from anywhere in North America, or by sending an email to
