1-800EveryRim.com Acquires Some of Competitor’s Assets

Acker Wheel of San Jose, Calif., has liquidated, selling off its remaining inventory, customer list and phone lines to 1-800EveryRim.com.

Doug Alton had owned the business since 1986, when he took it over from founder Jim Acker after working at the store for two years. When he became the owner, Alton changed the original name from Acker Tire and Rubber Works to Acker Wheel.

Billy Eordekian, President of 1-800EveryRim.com, had been a friendly competitor of Alton’s for several years, the men said.

“Doug’s customer list fits right in with ours, as of course we both cater to tire stores, collision centers, and auto recyclers,” Eordekian said.

“I have other business interests and I will spend more time with my family,” Alton noted. “Also, I will get more into my hobby as a falconer. My ranch is home to about 50 birds of prey including a Golden Eagle.” (Tire Review/Akron)
