Available in both CD-ROM and print versions, it features many updates to existing repair, retread, and wear conditions as well as new ones, including those that pertain to wide-base single tires.
With more than 200 colour photographs and illustrations, the guide contains detailed, expert descriptions of every tire failure and service condition known to the industry, including diagonal wear, irregular wear, sidewall separations, the ‘zipper condition’, and shoulder wear. It shows how to correct failure conditions and what to do with the damaged tire.
TMC calls the Guide, written by top tire experts, "an invaluable failure-analysis tool designed for fleet managers and tire professionals."
The Guide is priced at $79 (CD-ROM version: Item No. T0372; Print Version: Item No. T0121) for TMC or ATA members and $105 for non-members. Discounts for quantities of 10 or more are available.
