Gallery: Turbo Wholesale Tire open house

Highlights from this year's annual Turbo Wholesale Tires open house event, which featured a trade show, dinner and buyers event.

Turbo Wholesale Tires recently held its annual open house event, where it introduced the new Lexani Volt-EC EV tire. However, as any of the hundreds of people in attendance will tell you, the event included much more than a tire launch. After registration, guests entered Turbo’s new tire-filled warehouse, with half the space set aside for the tire companies and dealers, food and drinks, games and stage with a nearby pile of 89 prizes worth over $25,000.

Regardless of where guests stood, they partook in a constant game of dodgeball, whether they were aware or not. A barrage of T-shirts and mini, squishy baseballs and basketballs branded with company logos were thrown from end to end by staff and patrons alike, rules left behind in exchange for fun. It was all part of the family-run mentality presented by Turbo Wholesale Tires CEO Phillip Kane, who was equally excited to get involved in the “game” to make sure no one took the evening too seriously.

Check out some highlights from the event, below.

The stash of 89 prizes, valued at over $25,000, ranging from a pack of Yeti tumblers up to a combination vacation to both Las Vegas and Disney. Guests had to purchase tires during the event to get tickets for the prize raffle.
Seven sets of cornhole boards were stationed at the far end of the facility, behind buffet style tables of food.
