The rollout of TirePass, Love’s Travel Stops’ full-service tire inflation system, is complete, and the system is now available at more than 200 locations. The technology in TirePass is built to detect potential tire- and wheel- related problems before they occur.
“TirePass is a solution Love’s provides to save our customers on their cost per mile,” said Dan Jensen, director of tire sales and service for Love’s. “Underinflated tires and uneven tread wear can decrease fuel efficiency and lead to dangerous situations. Customers have been pleased with how fast our trained technicians can perform this critical piece of preventative maintenance and we’re happy to offer it to more drivers.”
Most locations with Love’s Truck Tire Care centers are equipped with TirePass and new locations with tire care facilities will begin receiving TirePass.
TirePass can extend the life of a tire by automatically inflating tires to the desired pressure. While a driver fuels, a technician hooks up truck and/or trailer tires to the automatic inflators stationed around the vehicle in the designated TirePass fueling lane. Tires are inflated to the desired pressure if necessary, and tread depth and pressure are measured and recorded. The use of Flow-Through valve caps maximizes drivers’ experience.
Fleet managers can receive immediate notification if a major problem is detected, giving them real time visibility of their units. Reports on all assessments performed throughout the month give fleets a way to analyze the life of their units’ tires. Drivers also receive immediate reports showing the status of their tires.
