These are the things that are covered in our video series.”

“As we continue to navigate a new world impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, tire manufacturers such as Yokohama 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.”
