Tire Rack was founded in 1979 in Indiana by Pete Veldman. The company sells automotive products via their website. Tire Rack began selling tires via a mail order catalog and a single store. The company began internet sales in 1995.
The company was one of the first online retailers of automotive equipment, such as tires, brakes, filters, tire storage products, and safety equipment. Tire Rack has distribution centers in 6 states, including their largest warehouse in Denver, Colorado, which claims 150,000 square feet of space. The company is also one of the few that will allow customers to pick up their orders directly from the warehouse.
Tire Rack tests every single tire they sell so customers can feel confident that they are getting accurate reviews and the correct tire for their application. The company has headquarters in South Bend, Indiana.
