Love’s has launched the TirePass full-service inflation system that offers drivers a way to check and automatically inflate tires while refueling. The service can also send reports to both drivers and fleets to monitor tire performance.
The driver pulls into a designated TirePass fueling lane to refuel and a trained technician hooks up truck and trailer tires to the automatic inflators stationed around the vehicle. Tread depth and pressure are measured and recorded and tires are inflated to the desired pressure if necessary.
The use of Flow-Through valve caps maximizes the experience, the company said.
“Customers have been asking for more tire maintenance services that don’t add time to their stops,” said Dan Jensen, director of tire sales and service for Love’s. “TirePass provides a crucial service without tacking on downtime.”
All drivers receive immediate reports showing tire status and fleets have the capability of receiving monthly reports with analyses on all assessments performed throughout the month. Love’s TirePass is currently available at 75 Love’s Travel Stop locations in the U.S.
“Customers can use TirePass as a tool to help them monitor tire life,” said Jensen. “Understanding how tires are wearing will help drivers and fleet managers learn how to maximize use.”
