With 870 retail stores, Discount Tire Co. Inc. tops the 2013 MTD 100, the industry’s most comprehensive list of independent tire dealer chains.
The MTD 100 determines the largest domestic independent tire store chains by counting retail, commercial and combination retail/commercial outlets. It also lists total number of wholesale outlets for each dealership, and tire brands carried.
Top-ranked Discount Tire added 46 stores, enough to knock TBC Corp. from the number one spot. TBC is number two on the list with 845 stores. Les Schwab Tire Centers ranks third, unchanged from last year, with 445 stores, 11 more than in 2012.
Monro Muffler Brake Inc. holds on to its fourth place rank with 403 stores, an increase of 97 outlets over the previous year. Bridgewater, N.J.-based Somerset Tire Service Inc. (also known as STS Tire & Auto Centers) added 25 stores to move from sixth to fifth with 145 outlets.
