Goodyear's Wingfoot has opened two new trucker's service facilities. With the addition of the locations in Joplin, Mo. and Greenwood, La., there are now 40 Wingfoot Truck Care Centers throughout the U.S.

Each site spans 10,300 square feet and sells Goodyear, Dunlop and Kelly truck tires along with retreads.

The centers also provide trucking fleets with oil changes and other preventive maintenance; light mechanical services, such as brake, electrical and heating/air conditioning repair; and 24/7 roadside assistance to get trucks back on the road quickly.

“Both of our new Wingfoot Truck Care Center locations have three service bays,” says Clint Schrock, director of on-highway operations at Goodyear.

“And each bay is dedicated to a different type of service,” he explains. “One bay is mainly used for tire replacement and other tire-related services, another is dedicated to light mechanical work, and the third bay has a full-length oil change pit and serves as an express lube bay.”

The Joplin facility is at exit 11A along Interstate 44; the Greenwood site is along I-20 at exit 3. The two outlets are located on Pilot Flying J properties.

“Both of these new Wingfoot Truck Care Centers are situated on a high-traffic shipping route,” says Schrock. “This, combined with the centers’ strategic on-highway positioning at Pilot Flying J locations, gives fleets and owner-operators greater access to our comprehensive array of products, services and solutions.”

Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Goodyear, has more than 140 sales, service and retread facilities nationwide.
