WASHINGTON, D.C., August 10, 2012 – More than 220,000 tire dealer, auto dealer and automotive repair locations will receive free tire care and service materials this month courtesy of the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA).

“We have been working with our members to review and update many of our tire care and service publications,” said Charles Cannon, RMA president and CEO. “So many businesses rely on RMA publications for important tire service information that our members wanted to distribute this updated information free of charge to as broad an industry audience as possible.”
