PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — TBC Corp.'s Tire Kingdom Service Centers and NTB Tire & Service Centers retail businesses will offer free tire checks during National Tire Safety Week, May 20-27.
The checks will be performed at Tire Kingdom's 190-plus location in Florida and NTB's 530-plus stores across the country, according to TBC President and CEO Eric Olsen.
National Tire Safety Week is an initiative of the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) to bring consumer attention to the importance of proper tire inflation and maintenance.
USTMA tire manufacturer members, tire dealerships, auto makers, independent auto service outlets and industry associations participate in National Tire Safety Week activities every year.
"Safety is of the utmost importance to all team members at Tire Kingdom and NTB, and we appreciate the efforts of the USTMA in making tire safety a priority and bringing it to the attention of consumers," Mr. Olsen said.
The safety check includes an inspection for air pressure; tread depth; irregular wear patterns; nails, cuts, punctures and other visible damage; and visible structural integrity issues.
NTB and Tire Kingdom also offers customers a free 22-point vehicle inspection.
