RNR Tire Express Is Donating a Portion of Sales to Hurricane Relief

Posted on September 18, 2017

RNR Tire Express & Custom Wheels (RNR) is raising funds to aid in the rebuild of the city of Houston and the state of Florida.

Throughout September, RNR locations across the nation will contribute $1 of each tire and wheel sale to support the relief initiative. The total proceeds collected at the end of the month will be donated by each franchise location to the organization of choice, including the American Red Cross, Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, Hurricane Irma Relief Fund, amongst others. 

“Thousands of people are suffering, including some of our own in Houston and all across the state of Florida,” says Larry Sutton, founder and president of RNR Tire Express. “I am proud to be associated with a group of men and women that understand the importance of using our mission to change lives both internally and externally.”

To learn more about how to help, visit a local RNR website or contact the store for more information.

Founded in 2000, RNR has since grown to 19 franchisees operating 100 locations in 22 states. RNR’s business model allows clients to pay off name brand tires and wheels on a weekly or monthly plan that is affordable to them.
