FORT SMITH, Ark., May 15, 2012 – Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems LLC has added two Wingfoot Truck Care Centers to its on-highway service network.

The new Wingfoot Truck Care Centers are located in Gulfport, Miss., and Sulphur Springs, Texas, according to Wingfoot President Paul Wanstreet. (Wingfoot is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.) With these additions, there are now 44 Wingfoot Truck Care Centers throughout the United States.

Like other Wingfoot Truck Care Centers, the Gulfport and Sulphur Springs locations provide the following products and services:

  • 24/7 roadside assistance to get trucks back on the road quickly.
  • New Goodyear and Dunlop truck tires, plus retreaded tires.
  • Oil changes and other preventive maintenance services.
  • Light mechanical services, including brake, electrical, heating/air conditioning repair, and more.

Each outlet spans 10,400 square feet and has three service bays. One bay is used for tire replacement and tire-related services, another is devoted to light mechanical work, and the third bay features a full-length oil change pit. It also serves as the location’s express lube bay.

“These Wingfoot Truck Care Centers are strategically located on Pilot Flying J properties to give truck drivers even greater access to our product and service offerings,” said Wanstreet.

“The Gulfport center is located on a Flying J property at Exit 31 along Interstate 10, a major highway that stretches from Arizona to Florida. The Sulphur Springs center is located on a Flying J property at Exit 122 along Interstate 30, which runs from Texas to Arkansas.”
