Deerfield Beach, Used Tire News-Once again the Tire Makers lobbying organization or RMA is sticking its nose into Governmental decisions legal? or not??  is it more than Lobbying? Us Senators believe the crap these Jerkoffs at THE RMA who have it appears Defamed and denounced the sale of Used tires and continue to say HALFTRUTHS….The RMA a group made up of Michelin North America,Goodyear Bridgestone/Firestone  Pirelli North America and on and on.Enemies of the Used Tire Industry now attacking the New Tire Industry in which all their members supply the retailers and wholesalers of new tires, are you catching on these are their customers and they spit in their face Goodyear selling tires online Direct bypassing their Dealer network and Michelin announcing the same according to Industry  Trade Magazines.
Smaller Government now that you have Influenced the US Senate does your influence include the donating of money or anything else of value to any of our Senators,cause we know you guys have tried this before against used tire dealers overseas.  You see you  hippocrites at the RMA cares not about any Tire Dealer New or Used, it is K Street at its worst. This is what is wrong with America BIG CORPORATIONS CONTROL OUR CONGRESS>.Everyone knows who when and where the tire was made and distributed DOT numbers carry sufficient information and has been the industry standard for DECADES without this Registration non sense RMA has cooked up and written for  you US Senators and buried in the Highway Bill.

Paul Walbert I went to back up his database earlier 6:30 PM EST. It still says database is backing up. When I called in at first they said up to two hours. Now they are saying 24. This is ridiculous clearly something is wrong with this database that is why it always times out and will not backup. Customer service has very poor communication with me in this matter, I'm not even sure if they know what's going on.

Used Opposes Florida Senate Bill 1588 ,Nothing more than a Cold Calculated Ruthless attempt by new Tire makers to eliminate Used Tire Dealers

The Honorable Jeremy Ring


Dear Senator Ring ,


Used Opposes Florida Senate Bill 1588 ,

Used Tires Inc is a Florida corporation engaged in the business of tire recycling and used tires sales wholesale.
The Florida Senate has a proposed Bill 1588 that would regulate the sales of used tires by retailers.Under the guise of consumer safety and consumer protectionism this bill exempts the sale of used tires for recapping. WHY? Because the New Tire makers are in the retreading business and sell the rubber and make Retreads themselves. How can a used tire be unsafe for ReUse as used tire but be safe as a casing for a retreaded tire???
 The EPA encourages the reuse of used tires. As a tire recycler and seller of used tires we strongly oppose this bill with the language it has in it.The legislature of Florida would do more for the motoring public if it reinstated automobile inspections not the sale at the retail level of a used tire.protecting the consumer and motorist from dangers like failing brakes,unsafe front ends,broken headlamps and signals and worn tires that should not be driven on the Florida roadways.Floridas motor vehicle laws already address the tread depth issue at 2/32 of a inch tires should be taken out of service. Maybe this committee should look at the mileage warranties given and  promised  by the new tire makers. A new tire with 11/32 or 12/32  of an inch of tread depth when new should not have to come out of service at 5/32 or 4/32 or even  3/32's of an inch or it would imply the manufacturers original warranty is false and misleading..
 The used tire industry has seen this shenanigans before always behind it are Goodyear,Bridgestone/Firestone,Pirelli North america and sometimes Michelin. They have probably broken Us laws including the Foreign Corrupt Practices act. We conclude it was no coincidence the Minister of Fomento in Venezuela the equivalant of our Commerce Secretary was a Firestone Tire Dealer .
They by virtue of their conspiring have probably and still are likely to be violating US ANTITRUST
laws such as the Sherman Act .
Senator, please oppose this poorly worded and unconstitutional Bill.

Goodyear should stick to making tires and flying blimps!

In a wry gesture, Goodyear last week sent letters offering free driving lessons to traffic-challenged celebrities Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes. But is such snarky newsjacking a smart move for this iconic brand?
Bynes skipped her suspended license hearing this week and has a court appearance slated for Thursday for two hit and run incidents. Meanwhile, Lohan said she's planning on suing a cook for slander for claiming last week she clipped him with her Porsche SUV and claiming that she was “slurring” and “smelled like alcohol.”
The nearly identical letters Goodyear sent the two actresses say they're “sorry to hear” about the latest “driving mishap,” and that they “understand” that “driving can be a real challenge, particularly trying to navigate all of the stop-and-go-traffic in LA and New York City.”
Echoing sentiments felt no doubt by many Americans, Goodyear continued, saying, “we are concerned for you...We're concerned for your safety.”
The letter offered to fly the actresses out to the company's headquarters in Akron, Ohio for private lessons with their professional drivers, “no paparazzi allowed.” These trainers could show the “do's and don'ts of driving safely.” After a few spins around the test track, “you'll even be able to show Herbie the Lovebug a thing or two,” quipped the letter to Lohan.
It's all pretty light as far as celebrity digs go, but it feels a little weird coming from Goodyear. This is the tire brand of trust and value. It's been around since 1898. It represents solid Midwestern values, and is a stalwart of American manufacturing.
Until now, one of its most recognizable marketing campaigns has been the Goodyear blimp: a giant rubber-coated dirigible that idles over large mainstream sporting events. It's slow. It's massive. It's authorized. Its main goal is to get Goodyear's big yellow logo beamed out over broadcast television.
It's pretty much the opposite of the Lohan and Bynes zings. They were geared to appeal to celebrity news sites and blogs and those who read them. They were created and executed quickly in response to a piece of celebrity news. The playful tone and the use of a source document primed them for social media viral uplift.
Twitter? Perezhilton? TMZ? Not exactly what you associate with a venerable American tire brand.
Opportunistic PR
“It's opportunistic PR,” Chris Curran, Goodyear's Vice President of Communications Public Relations, told NBC News. His signature appears at the bottom of both letters. Curran said that a piece of public relations material has to do one of three things: educate, entertain or inform. “This does all three,” he said. “It educates who Goodyear is, informs that there's an offer, and it also entertains.”
He disagreed that the move was out of the norm for the tire company, noting that several years ago they convinced Detroit Pistons guard Richard Hamilton to style his hair so that it looked like Goodyear's new TripleTred tire.
“Something that is fun and quirky gets across in a better way,” said Curran. “Obviously, we do normal PR and communications initiatives to promote our products, but sometimes it's 'fun' to do something a little outside the box that gets people talking.” A lot of people inside the company have said that the letters “were kind of cool,” too, he noted.
Goodyear isn't the first big brand to try to ride the buzz off a piece of news. Last year, Abercrombie & Fitch offered members of the Jersey Shore cast cash to not wear their clothes. Two years ago, when Obama made an offhand remark about holding a “Slurpee Summit” with Republicans, 7-11 made an official offer to the White House to supply them with red, white, and blue colored Slurpees.
Tim Nudd, editor of Adweek's blog AdFreak, is not a fan of the Goodyear initiative. “It's definitely a cheap publicity grab, and if you're a generally well respected brand -- which Goodyear is -- engaging these kinds of marketing gimmicks will only cheapen your brand accordingly,” he wrote by email. For Goodyear, your “absolute No. 1 brand attribute is trust. Why align yourself in any way with people who are reckless?” he said. “It's transparent celebrity-baiting.”
Raw security camera footage from outside a New York hotel shows a vehicle, driven by Lindsay Lohan, drive through the scene, and a man who alleges she hit him, chase after the car.
But what do the people think? Judging by the comments about the campaign on Twitter and blogs, they mostly think, “LOL,” “Hilarious” and “Brilliant.” So, success?
If there's one guy who can sort it out, it's Alex Bogusky, formerly one of the main creative engines behind advertising agency Crispin Porter and Bogusky. Among others, they're the ones responsible for all those unnerving “Wake up with the King!” Burger King ads. He should know a good counterintuitive campaign from a bad one.
And guess what? He likes it.
