Flatproofing

If flat tires are costing you time and money, earthmover flatproofing can help. Pumped into the tire through the valve stem, a liquid polyurethane polymer replaces all of the air in the tire and cures into a resilient, synthetic rubber core that completely eliminates faults. It works in any sound casing and adverse weather. To ensure that your equipment keeps running, STTC uses the highest-quality Foam-Fill from Arnco.

Tweel Retreading

Service Tire Truck Centers (STTC) announces the production of the 1st officially approved MRT tweel retread. STTC is the first and only Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) dealer to utilize the MRT process and Michelin produced rubber to manufacture Tweel retreads. This is the only approved Tweel retread that meets the high quality standards set by MRT since the tread designs and compounds are the same as those produced for the new Tweel product lines.

The Tweel personnel at MRT have been working for over a year designing the retread to insure that the finished product is of the highest quality. The MRT project group worked closely with STTC’s Bethlehem retread plant last week to insure our technicians are properly trained to produce quality Tweel retreads.

“STTC is very excited to have worked with MRT to bring this approved Tweel retread to market. We believe customers will find value in being able to increase their return on investment on their Tweel cores by being able to find a quality retread that increases the core’s lifespan. This retread is another of the vast suite of products and services STTC brings to market that differentiates us from our competition” – Walt Dealtrey, CEO/President

OTR Tracking

OTR Tracking

OTRtracker is STTC’s proprietary program for OTR fleet inspections and tire asset management. This tool was developed by STTC with our customer’s input to assist the needs of our OTR customers.   The OTRtracker allows them higher visibility of their assets, access to a history of fleet inspections, and provides a total cost of ownership.

Every time a fleet inspection is completed all of the pertinent data is entered and saved into OTRtracker. A report providing an overview of the activity and highlighting wheel positions with concerns is created and can be sent to any interested party.
