Who has 100 or more stores? Find out in the July MTD

July 25, 2007

How many independent tire dealers have more than 100 outlets? The answer might surprise you: only six. This is just one of the many fascinating revelations found in the July 2007 issue of Modern Tire Dealer, which contains the magazine's annual Top 100 Domestic Independent Tire Store Chains list.

This year's list is part of a larger special section that includes an in-depth look at the 10 biggest dealerships -- including their store count, the brands they sell, annual sales, and a look at their future plans -- plus feature stories on three fast-rising Top 100 dealers: Hennelly Tire & Auto Inc. dba The Tire Choice, Tire Guys Inc. dba Tire-Rama Inc. and Evans Tire & Service Center.

The July MTD also takes an extensive look at marketing nitrogen inflation, a first-hand report on the recent Automotive Aftermarket Legislative Summit, and other features.
