Our Pillars

  • Safety

    Safety is the tire industry’s top priority. We are committed to making tires that make driving easier, safer, smarter and more sustainable.  Tire manufacturers are in constant pursuit of excellence by inventing new ways to design and engineer tires.  Tires today are much safer and better performing than the tires from a few decades ago. The most recent government data analysis showed tire-related crashes decreased by over 50% between 2007 and 2010. 

  • Environmental Stewardship

    From environmental stewardship to workplace safety to corporate social responsibility, USTMA members are committed to continuous improvement. Our members have reduced energy use and greenhouse gas emissions and are incorporating sustainable and biogenic materials in tire manufacturing. USTMA members share the goal that all scrap tires enter sustainable and circular end-use markets by incentivizing market development and advancing federal and state regulations that foster sustainable scrap tire markets .

  • Economy

    Tire manufacturing helps keep the American economy moving. U.S. tire makers employ nearly 100,000 people in our country, including factory workers and highly skilled scientists, engineers and others. Tires are always in demand, which makes tire manufacturing the kind of steady, robust industry our communities can count on in this changing economy.

  • Innovation

    Tires are the only part of a car that touches the road and that connection is critically important to keeping the American economy moving and the driving public safe. The tire manufacturing industry has invested billions of dollars in improving tires so they are significantly safer and more sustainable than just a few decades ago – and they’re only getting better.
