Tire Discounters was founded in 1976 by current chairman William (Chip) Wood in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company has remained family owned and Chip’s son Jamie Wood currently serves as VP of Sales & Operations.
The company began with a single location but expanded quickly in the southern Ohio region.
The company was the first to offer all-inclusive pricing instead of the traditional way of separating tire and installation charges. The company also offers free 4 wheel alignment with the purchase of 4 tires.
In addition to tires, the company also offers other services like brakes, shocks & struts and oil changes.
Tire Discounters is currently the 10th largest independent tire dealer in the US. There are over 100 Tire Discounter locations in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.
In 2017, the company announced that it had plans to double its footprint in the tire industry, growing from 106 locations to 200 or more within the next 5 years.
