Comments Email

BOWIE, Md. (April 24, 2014) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA), with the Western Canada Tire Dealers Association (WCTDA), will hold a three-day Commercial Tire Service (CTS) 400 Level Instructor Training and Certification Class in Edmonton, Alberta.

The class will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 6-8.

TIA said its Certified CTS Instructor Program exceeds the minimum training requirements established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and includes all aspects

of truck tire and wheel service. That includes OSHA regulations; mounting/demounting/inflation; torque; puncture repair; balancing; road service; and more.

The CTS Instructor Course is based on a train-the-trainer model that combines classroom and hands-on demonstrations, giving students “the tools and knowledge they will need to impart that information on their tire service technicians,” TIA said.

For registration information, contact the WCTDA’s Andy Nagy at 403-264-3179 or via email at andy@wctda.ca.

More information is available on TIA’s website or by calling 800-876-8372.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?

I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.

I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.

I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.

I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.

I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.
