If you’re a trucker, nobody needs to tell you that having your truck and semi trailer out of commission for any significant period of time is a problem. In summertime, as temperatures start to climb, so does the risk of serious, heat-related issues. From damage caused by an overheated engine to blown tires, these troubles can take you off the road for hours or even days at a time.
We’ve all heard the phrase “where the rubber meets the road.” For any company that uses semi trailers to haul products or materials, that point is one that can have a significant effect on everything from fuel economy to safety. Knowing what to look for when purchasing tires and how to get the most life out of tires without creating a safety risk can be a key to success.
