TBC Corp. CEO and President Erik Olsen added the role of chairman of the board to his responsibilities on July 1, 2014. Olsen succeeds Larry Day who retired from the chairman's post on June 30.

“This represents the last piece of the transition plan Larry and I launched in the fall of 2013,” says Olsen.

    If y'all own Tire Kingdom in Crystal River it is the worst tire service I've ever got. I spent $1,500.00 on tires there a couple of months ago, and I've had a slow leak on one of my tires. I've been by Tire Kingdom on Hwy 44 in Crystal River Florida numerous times where I bought the tires, and today 12/13/2017 three times and each time I was told to come back in a hour and a half. I work 7 days a week, and took off today just to get my tire fixed just to be turned away 3 times. My tires were bought and ensured there but still I have a slow leak. I hope someone can help me get this problem solved, the employees there are useless. Fell free to contact, 3185422696. Thanks Tony
