PIB TIP: MAINTAIN TIRE PRESSURE. To reduce rolling resistance, check the tire air pressure in all 18 tires and fill them up at least weekly to the manufacturer’s specifications. The trailer tires may belong to your carrier, but why pay the extra cost of pulling a trailer with under-inflated tires? The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Schneider National Inc. and Freightliner Trucks.
