If you want to know the latest on lead vs. non-lead wheel weights, you're in luck! A free webinar will be held on Thursday, Oct. 4, at 2 p.m. EST.

Hosted by Modern Tire Dealer, the webinar will feature multiple experts in this field brought together by Perfect Equipment Inc. One of them is Becky Jayne from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency; she will discuss the Illinois law banning lead wheel weights. She will give listeners insight into mindset of states as they present and pass such laws.

The webinar will center around the five major goals that every tire shop should have when considering a switch to a non-lead solution. It will look at the history of wheel weights in general, the current state of lead wheel weight legislation (the United States EPA is scheduled to release its lead wheel weight regulatory investigation findings in November), the current alternatives and how every business can build a strategy for success.

"Perfect Equipment prides itself on providing its customers with the product options and educational opportunities they need to be successful," says Mike Pursley, vice president of sales. "This week's webinar is just another way we are helping to drive the industry towards the future."
