Giti Tire is supporting the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) in its yearly consumer tire safety awareness campaign, Tire Safety Week, from August 31 – September 6.
This initiative, “Know Your Roll,” educates motorists about tire care, safety and maintenance.
Safety is at the forefront of Giti Tire’s focus – and encomposses all areas of tire research, development, testing, production and quality control. In particular, Giti has expanded its investment into its in-house AdvanZtech technology program, utilizing its five global R&D and testing centers to integrate the most modern technical advancements into its products.
The mission of Giti is aligned with that of USTMA, of which Giti Tire is one of only 13 member tire companies in the world. “As we continue to navigate a new world impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, tire manufacturers continue to create the smartest and most sustainable technologies that put the safest tires on the road,” said Anne Forristall Luke, president and CEO of USTMA. “National Tire Safety week is an initiative that educates drivers about the critical role they play in maintaining tire safety and ensures they have the information they need to successfully prioritize safety on the road.”
As drivers begin getting back on the road after frequent vehicle downtime, now is the perfect time to get to a local auto care shop to check their vehicle and tires. During this period, there is a likelihood that tire pressure or wear has been affected, and it may be the right time for a tire rotation or replacement.
