The “best of the best” independent tire dealers deserve unparalleled support to take their business to the next level. You work hard to serve your community and take care of your employees, and in today’s competitive tire retail landscape, you must have the support to fulfill your business’ needs as well as your goals and aspirations for it. As an independent tire dealer, what makes your business special is its identity—you’re a pillar of your community, someone that truly cares and stands out for top-notch customer service. However, sometimes you don’t get the support you need to achieve your business’s maximum potential.

K&M Tire knows this, and that’s why its Mr. Tire/Big 3 Tire Dealer Program offers a five-pronged approach to take your business to greater heights.

“A Mr. Tire dealer understands their identity, and it goes generations deep,” says Dave Miller, K&M Tire’s director of marketing. “They put their customer No. 1 in their business and that’s what makes them successful and the leading and most-trusted dealer in their area.”

Exclusive rebates and incentives, access to discounted supplies, flexible marketing plans and reliable warranty services are just a few of the perks the Mr. Tire/ Big 3 Tire Dealer Program offers. Let’s dig into them more!

The Importance of Tire Inspection Before Repair

Myers Tire Supply experts caution that skipping the inspection step can have dangerous consequences.

When a customer comes into your shop with a tire puncture, taking the time to properly inspect it first may feel like an unnecessary hassle. However, tire repair experts caution that skipping this critical first step can have dangerous consequences.

"Whether it's a passenger, truck, or OTR tire, many technicians just want to pull the tire off. They want to find the object, get it out, put a patch on and get it going down the road,” says Rich Watts, a consultant with 38 years of experience at Myers Tire Supply. “However, that could be a dangerous tire to put back on the rim if you don't inspect for signs of run-flat damage or other problems."
