TBC Promotes National Tire Safety Week

Posted on May 14, 2019

TBC Corp. is offering free tire inspections at its more than 720 Tire Kingdom Service Centers and NTB Tire & Service Centers during National Tire Safety Week.

The U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) promotes the consumer awareness week. For 2019 it will be May 20-27.

Erik Olsen, CEO and president of TBC Corp., says, “With summer right around the corner, we hope that all consumers take the opportunity to stop in and allow one of our team members to perform a courtesy tire care check to ensure their tires are in safe driving condition.”

The tire care check from TBC includes an inspection for:

  • air pressure,
  • tread depth,
  • irregular wear patterns,
  • nails, cuts, punctures and other visible damage, and
  • visible structural integrity issues.

Tire Kingdom and NTB stores also offer customers a free 22-point vehicle inspection.
