AKRON (May 24, 2007) — Goodyear this summer is kicking off its second “Free Air” campaign as a bid to help motorists save money on gasoline by having their tires inflated at the tire maker's company-owned stores and participating dealerships.
Goodyear said drivers can have their tires checked for free regardless of the tire's brand or where they were bought. The firm said the stores will check tread depth and inflation pressure. Underinflated tires will be topped off for free, and appointments aren't necessary.
“When gas prices are this high, it's easy to see why tire maintenance is so important,” said Joey Viselli, director of the Goodyear brand.
The Akron-based tire maker said the program has the potential to save motorists more than $1.5 billion in unnecessary fuel costs this summer.
