AKRON, Ohio — The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has expanded its Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network with the recent opening of a new Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Center in the Greensboro, N.C., area.

The center — located at 1301 Roosevelt Court in the Greensboro suburb of Whitsett — underscores Goodyear’s commitment to supplying fleets in, around and passing through the Greensboro area with premium Goodyear truck tires, retreads and services, according to Paul Wanstreet, president and COO of Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers.

“This state-of-the-art center is an important piece in our growing Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network,” Wanstreet said, “and enables us to more effectively serve trucking operations of all sizes and configurations, whether their trucks are based in the greater Greensboro area or are passing through.”

The 23,000-square-foot facility brings the total number of Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers to 181 locations.

It offers the following products and services:

• New Goodyear, Dunlop and Kelly brand medium truck tires, including the new Goodyear Fuel Max LHD G505D, North America’s most fuel-efficient long haul drive tire.

• Goodyear retreads, including Goodyear’s spliceless UniCircle Technology

• Goodyear-Fleet HQ 24/7 Emergency Roadside Service

• DOT inspections

• Oil changes

• Truck alignments

• Trailer readiness inspections and services

• Light mechanical work

• Truck tire repair and other tire-related services

The center contains nine service bays, plus a driver lounge and meeting center.

“This new store makes it even easier for fleets to access premium Goodyear commercial truck tires and services to help them lower their overall operating costs, including our new Fuel Max LHD G505D, which can help our customers cut their fleet expenses,” Wanstreet said. “We look forward to continuing to provide the premium products and services that fleets have come to expect from Goodyear.”
