Welcome to Discount Tire, the world’s largest independent tire and wheel retailer.
Bruce T. Halle had a dream, to own his own tire shop. And, so, in 1960 he founded the first Discount Tire in Ann Arbor, Michigan. That was the good news. The bad news was that he only had six tires. Halle was determined, though, and grew his business by creating good, solid connections with the community and respecting his relationships with customers and employees. Halle’s respect, kindness and generosity turned his store into a highly successful and responsible business.
By 1990, the company had grown to over 200 stores and in 2002, it opened its 500th store.
On September 10, 2018, Discount Tire opened its 1000th store in Phoenix, Arizona.
Today, Discount Tire provides a wide range of product choices with affordable pricing. With a focus on customer satisfaction, the company’s highly qualified staff offer a warm personal touch to every customer.
The company is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Discount Tire is now owned by Reinalt-Thomas Corp.
In the spring of 2021, Discount Tire began selling windshield wiper blades, its first product sold other than tires or wheels.
In December 2021, Discount Tire acquired Tire Rack.
In 2005, Discount Tire’s “Thank You” commercial entered the Guinness World Records as the longest continuously running TV commercial.
