Tire Industry Association Joins Right to Repair Movement


Recommended Posts

The Tire Industry Association has joined other association leaders to support the critical global Right to Repair movement by signing the new Right to Repair position statement.

The statement enumerates the core beliefs of the movement and the objectives and intended outcomes of right to repair legislation. The document also sets forth 10 best-practice principles to developing a framework for Right to Repair legislation that any supporting country can use and adapt them to their needs.

Globally, the automotive aftermarket keeps 1.5 billion vehicles on the road while contributing $1.8 trillion to the global economy. After vehicles exit their warranty period, independent repair shops perform 70% of repairs. This vibrant industry and the consumer choice that it creates is being threatened by automotive manufacturers that block access to wirelessly transmitted vehicle repair and maintenance data, according to TIA.

Without the convenience and choice of independent parts and repair, especially in suburban and rural communities, consumers will have limited access to affordable vehicle service and repair. These restrictions can have catastrophic effects on local economies and the well-being and safety of millions that rely on vehicle transportation daily, TIA says.

In the United States, the automotive aftermarket is a $492 billion industry employing 4.5 million professionals, according to the Auto Care Association. 

“Right to Repair is a top priority for TIA members and for the global automotive aftermarket,” said Richard “Dick” Gust, TIA CEO. “Without safeguards, independent automotive repairers and vehicle owners will have fewer repair options, face longer wait times and pay higher prices when they repair their vehicles. It is crucial for independent auto repair locations to have access to the equipment and data needed to repair today’s highly technological vehicles and that consumers have a choice in where they get their vehicles repaired.”

      Truck Brake Pads Thickness
      The recommended thickness of truck brake pads may vary depending on the specific brand and model of the truck, as well as the type of braking system installed.
      However, regardless, our principle is to replace them when the thickness is less than 3 to 4mm, which plays a protective role in our safety. The new thickness of truck brake pads is typically 30 millimeters. As the brake pads wear from use, their thickness gradually decreases. Once the brake pads reach the recommended minimum thickness, they should be replaced to ensure optimal braking performance and safety.

      We all know that the basic formulas for brake pads nowadays are ceramic, low metallic, and semi-metallic brake pads. However, for truck brake pads, we strongly recommend using the semi-metallic formula. The reason is that semi-metallic brake pads have a much higher wear resistance compared to low metallic and ceramic formulas, even though ceramic formulas are more friendly to the brake rotor.

      Brake pads for towing and trailers serve a similar function to those used in regular vehicles but are often designed to handle heavier loads and more intense braking conditions. When towing a trailer or hauling heavy loads, the braking system needs to exert more force to slow down or stop the vehicle safely.

      Bus brake pads are a critical component of the braking system in buses. These pads are designed to create friction against the brake rotors when the brake pedal is depressed, thereby slowing down or stopping the vehicle. The friction generated between the brake pads and the rotors or drums converts the kinetic energy of the moving bus into heat energy, dissipating it into the surrounding air.
