We have all seen a horror or thriller movie about a crazed truck driver chasing down hapless victims in their big intimidating trucks, and it goes without saying

Properly maintained commercial truck tires aren’t just a matter of safety and fuel economy (although that should be enough reason for any owner/operator or fleet manager); it’s a matter of federal regulation.
