TCS launches Facebook tire shopping app

May 1, 2012

Tire Company Solutions (TCS) Technologies has unveiled a new tire and wheel searching capability allowing consumers to get a quote or even buy a tire or wheel from the dealer’s Facebook Page.

With more than 1,000 customers across the US and Canada, TCS says it is the first technology company offering this capability.

This new Facebook tire and wheel searching capacity is the latest step in allowing consumers to search and get product quotes wherever they are on the web. The Facebook tire search platform, built in tandem with tire, wheel and service websites provided by TCS, delivers a dealers inventory to Facebook’s more than 800 million active users.

The app allows a dealer to specify what tire and wheel products are displayed when a user searches by vehicle, size or brand. The tire and wheel results are displayed with a photo of the product, specifications, features and benefits and even price if the dealer so chooses.

Pricing can be pulled real-time from the dealer’s software or even display pricing and quantity from multi distributor channels. Dealers who choose not to display pricing can have the option to include a “Request a Quote” button next to each product. These dealers receive an email containing consumer contact information and which product they would like a quote on.

Interested dealers can visit the company’s website at or call (888) 449-8473.
