Kumho doubles dealer program payouts

Posted on April 17, 2014

Kumho Tire U.S.A. announced it will double payouts for select tires in its Premium Fuel associate dealer program in the second quarter.

The company says top passenger sellers the ECSTA PA31, ECSTA 4X, ECSTA LE Sport and LX Platinum, and LTR patterns the Road Venture APT, Road Venture MT, Road Venture AT, and the ecoSolus KL21, will now qualify for double the payouts.

The same tire patterns are also featured on Kumho’s spring rebate promotion offering consumers up to $100 off through May 31, 2014.

Kumho says dealers are earning money when they buy these tires and selling more when consumers are driven to their doors for these savings.

By doubling the payouts, Kumho Premium Fuel associate dealers are able to earn back up to $20 a tire. In addition to these incentives, Kumho Tire is supplying all Premium Fuel dealers general branding and rebate kits to help promote sales. The company says the theme behind this rebate promotion is the first of many to come surrounding its NBA sponsorship.

For more information or to sign up for the Premium Fuel program, contact a Kumho sales representative or email FUEL@KumhotireUSA.com.

Using 'Return on Sales' Measurement to Guide Purchases

Let’s look at two hypothetical tire and service stores, in the same town, a few miles from each other. Both stores do about $1.2 million in sales with about a third of their business in tires, the rest in service. Both see business is up and getting even better. It’s time to hire another salesperson. My advice to one of the owners is, “Go ahead, you need the extra help,” to which he thanks me for my expert opinion. To the other owner, I say, “It will make you lose money,” and he quickly tells me how wrong I am.

Anne Forristall Luke believes as the USTMA better explains the part it plays in consumer safety, consumers will be more likely to ask what part they need to play to keep travel safe.
