Pearson Tire celebrates 60 years in business

The event was billed as the largest celebration in Utah tire industry history. During the celebration, a 1939 Chevrolet pickup truck was presented to Pearson.
Several of Pearson Tire's suppliers donated prizes, including Hankook Tire America Corp., which gave away a set of tires.
Currently, the dealership has six wholesale/retail locations serving Utah, plus parts of Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming.
Its motto is "provide customers the highest quality products, furnish them with exceptional service and make a fair profit for ourselves and the company," says Pearson. "We don't sell a customer anything they don't need... and we exceed their expectations in service, quality and professionalism.
"We try to live by (that) mission statement, which sums up the reason why we've kept going strong."
