Inc. Magazine Names RNR Tire Express One of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies

Posted on August 18, 2017

RNR Tire Express & Custom Wheels (RNR) has been ranked No. 4553 on the 36th annual Inc. 5000. It is the third time Inc. magazine has ranked the tire and custom wheel franchise among the nation's fastest-growing private companies.

Companies are ranked according to the growth percentage of their annual revenue over a three-year period. To be featured on the list, applicants must have proven their strategies to be successful, demonstrating increased growth, revenue and reputation.

The Inc. 5000 is considered the gold standard of entrepreneurial success.

“It is quite an honor to not only be recognized for a third time but to also be ranked among some of the largest, most successful companies in America,” says Larry Sutton, founder and president of RNR Tire Express. “Our continuous growth is directly related to two things – the hard work and determination of our franchisees and our offering of quality products and services at an affordable price.”

RNR Tire Express & Custom Wheels has carved out a unique niche in the tire and wheel industry. With its convenient, no hassle payment plans that fit each client’s budget, RNR offers and professionally installs high quality tires and custom wheels to a growing underserved market.

RNR has established a business model that allows clients to pay off name brand tires and wheels on a weekly or monthly plan that is affordable to them. The unique pay-as-you-go or lease purchase business model is not just attractive to consumers – the company says its franchisees have witnessed the demand of the service and are reinvesting in the brand to open more locations throughout the nation.

Founded in 2000 by rent-to-own veteran Larry Sutton, RNR has since grown to 100 locations in 22 states. The brand has experienced significant organic growth with just 19 franchisees operating 100 locations.

Recent honors for RNR include ranking as the No. 1 category leader for miscellaneous auto products in Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2017 Franchise 500 list and also the No. 126 spot on the annual ranking—the highest in company history. RNR was also ranked on the magazine’s Best of the Best list – coming in at No. 1 in the Automotive – Wheel and Tire Category.
