After a six-week run of tire service training webinars for passenger and light truck tires, the Tire Industry Association (TIA) is adding a three-week series of free online video conference webinars in July directed at fleets that use mounted tire programs and the commercial tire dealers who provide those services.

The webinars, which will run from July 7-21, will allow registrants to preview TIA’s Commercial Tire Service (CTS) training program at no charge.  

“With COVID-19 still having an impact on our in-person training classes, we decided to use the month of July to address fleet tire safety with another series of webinars,” said Kevin Rohlwing, TIA senior vice president of training. “We’re going to use different parts of our Commercial Tire Service (CTS) program to help fleet tire personnel and commercial tire sales personnel understand the basic components of truck tire and wheel safety. This is a great series for anyone who works in a fleet with a mounted tire program or works with fleets to support a mounted tire program.”

TIA’s Fleet Tire Safety Webinars will be held via Zoom two times each day every Tuesday through Thursday at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. EDT over the three-week period. Each class will be 30 minutes and include time at the end for questions. The webinars are free to attend. Students can register here or here.

The webinars will use videos and materials from TIA’s training programs to help fleets and commercial tire dealers understand the key principles for truck tire inspection, inflation and wheel torque. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations also will be addressed to ensure attendees are aware of their federal and state compliance obligations.    

Led by TIA staff instructors, the webinars will use a combination of videos, images and discussion to cover three key areas of fleet tire safety: Inspection, Inflation and Torque. The schedule includes: 

  • Week 1, July 7-9: Truck Tire & Wheel Inspection: Tread depth, out-of-service conditions, inflation pressure, wheel inspection;
  • Week 2, July 14-16: Truck Tire Inflation: Inflation pressure maintenance, effects of underinflation and over inflation, tire inflation safety and OSHA regulations; and
  • Week 3, July 21-23: Wheel Torque: Relationship between torque and clamping force, hub-pilot installation procedures, torque check guidelines.
