The Technology and Maintenance Council, better known as TMC, recently released the third edition of its excellent User’s Guide to Wheels and Rims. This "one of a kind" guide to wheel and rim maintenance will help shop personnel analyze and solve wheel and rim problems of all sorts. Available in English and Spanish, it replaces TMC’s Wheel and Rim Out-of-Service Guide. TMC member price is US$79 while non-members pay US$105.00.

Also available are several other TMC wheel and tire guides, including the comprehensive Radial Tire Conditions Analysis Guide. Updated last year, it contains detailed descriptions of every tire failure and service condition for both original and retread tires. It shows what to look for when examining diagonal tire wear, irregular wear, sidewall separations, the ‘zipper’ condition, shoulder wear, and more. And then it explains how to correct the problem. Available as a book or CD, its pricing is the same as the wheel and rim guide.
An especially good deal is the TMC Tire and Wheel Essentials, being two tire/wheel publications combined in one package. One is the 200-page Radial Tire & Disc Wheel Service Manual, the other being the Radial Tire & Disc Wheel Conditions Digest. The latter is a pocket-sized booklet that summarizes the top irregular wear, radial tire, and disc wheel conditions that appear in the full version of TMC’s Radial Tire Conditions Analysis Guide and User’s Guide to Wheels and Rims. It’s a quick reference for inspectors, owner-operators/drivers, technicians, fleet personnel, trainers/educators, and suppliers, says TMC. Pricing is US$89.00 for members, US$111.25 for non-members.
