Who is the typical successful North American tire dealer?
Introducing Tire Review’s 2006 Tire Dealer Profile Study the industry’s most extensive, most coveted research effort. To compile this year’s report, Tire Review surveyed hundreds of independent tire dealers throughout North America who took time out of their busy schedules to answer this important question.
Those dealers served as a single voice to help us understand what it means to be successful in the tire industry.
One by one, these dealers offered valuable insights into the industry’s most pressing questions. They answered fundamental questions, such as: How is a successful tire dealership structured? Where do they buy their tires? When do they sell the most tires? What are the average selling prices of consumer and commercial tires?
They also offered inside information that’s not available anywhere else: How much profit do they earn on those tires? Who do dealers consider their toughest competition? Where are their pain points? Seasonally, what are their best months for tire and service sales? How much do they pay employees?
Presented here are a few of the key questions asked in this year’s study. For complete study results, contact
