The second annual - OEM Wheels Happy New Year Luncheon will take place on Jan. 16, 2014, when Tire Industry Association (TIA) President Ken Brown will present “TIA Today – TIA Tomorrow.”

A tour of the 1-800EverRim warehouse will take place before the event.

Last year’s event included top retailers, California Tire Dealers Association members, Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Wheel & Tire Council dealer members, vendors and industry leaders including MTD contributor Wayne Williams of Exsell Marketing.

“Ken is the perfect fit for this gathering as he is a second-generation independent tire dealer who understands what most of our attendees experience each day,” 1-800EveryRim President Billy Eordekian stated.

Brown’s family operates Alan Brown Tire Center with two locations in Oregon, and is a Les Schwab Tire dealer.
