As the old saying goes, the wheel goes round and round. In the trucking industry, that's a make-it or break-it factor. If a truck or trailer's tires aren't in proper working order, they can have a serious impact on a carrier's bottom line. So if you want to see that trucks, truck-tractors and trailers are equipped with safe and properly functioning tires – and you're the type of person who never tires of tires – then maybe you should consider joining the trucking industry as a Wheel and Tire Technician.

How do I get to be a Truck and Transport Mechanic?
Wheel installers typically have experience as tire technicians before progressing to wheel installation.
In some regions (such as Ontario), anyone who installs wheels on commercial vehicles must be certified to do so. Tire technicians often learn their trade through on-the-job experience.
