Women with Drive Workshop in Cebu

The Cebu Bloggers Society was invited by Goodyear Philippines for another event named as Goodyear Pa Rin. Goodyear Philippines continued its 111 years of safety innovation when it brought the “Goodyear Pa Rin” roadshow to Parkmall Cebu last October 16 to 18, 2009. The three-day event featured activities for the general public such as an all-day photo booth, car displays, and Women with Drive sessions conducted by Goodyear’s top racing endorsers.

“Being one of the world’s largest tire manufacturers, Goodyear acknowledges its immense responsibility to observe good corporate governance. Goodyear is mindful not only of the impact of its business operations on its key stakeholders but also of its contribution to the safety of the general public”, Alava explained, “Goodyear works to be a socially responsible company in all areas. It focuses on its core value, which is safety, and mobilize its human, physical and financial resources to promote safety across three vectors – Road & Driver safety, Environmental safety, and Workplace safety.”

Goodyear Pa Rin! opened the highly successful Women with Drive session to the public. Women with Drive, is an advocacy campaign specially designed for females to empower them with basic auto maintenance and troubleshooting skills. The session educates participants on road safety and equips them with knowledge of a vehicle’s different areas, including the engine, fluids, electrics, belts, hoses, wipers, under body and tires.

Goodyear Philippines Managing Director, Gerry Alava, stated that main objective of the free community service program is simply to provide women with the knowledge and confidence to keep their car in safe and in running order.

Goodyear shares three simple tire safety tips for every woman’s peace of mind: Inflate, Replace and Rotate.

1. Inflate

Check your tire inflation with a tire pressure gauge. Your tire pressure will ensure fuel economy and tire performance, as well as ensure a smooth ride. The right amount of air needed by your tires is specified by the car manufacturer and is shown on the vehicle door edge, door post, glove box door or fuel door. It is also listed in the owner’s manual. As a rule, check pressure when tires are cool and never let your tires go below 20psi.

2. Rotate

Goodyear recommends rotating tires every 10,000 to 12,000 kilometers to equalize tread wear – a must before putting a lot more kilometers in your tire.

3. Replace

A worn-out tire can cause accidents so make sure you replace tires when needed. Use the P5-coin test to check your tire’s wear and tear. Insert the P5 coin into the tire tread right side up. As long as the wavy line at the bottom of the coin is not exposed, your tire treads are not worn out and have adequate grip for your safe driving.

And while these are easy exercises for routine car maintenance, some functions can only be performed by qualified technicians such as those at Goodyear Autocare, Goodyear Servitek and Tyre Pro outlets nationwide. These one-stop total car care centers offer specialized tire and automotive services and access to a comprehensive range of Goodyear tires at unrivalled value. Goodyear Autocare, Goodyear Servitek and Tyre Pro also provides professional services guided by a mission to assure a safe journey for the motoring public.
