Two of the largest independent tire dealers in the U.S. earned the highest customer satisfaction scores in a new ranking of the aftermarket by J.D. Power and Associates. But the survey shows there's plenty of competition nipping at their heels.
The rankings are based on the responses of 12,554 vehicle owners conducted in August and September 2019 for the first U.S. Aftermarket Service Index Study, conducted by J.D. Power and SurveyMonkey.
Based on a 1,000-point scale, here's how the retailers ranked in the tire replacement customer satisfaction index ranking, with their score. (Read the full details of the survey, including what was most important to consumers, here.)
