Coker Group purchases Wheel Vintiques

Oct. 21, 2011

The Coker Group, the parent group of Coker Tire Co., recently purchased the assets of Wheel Vintiques Inc. from Mike and Sherrie Stallings.

Founded in 1986, Wheel Vintiques is one of the most recognized names in the collector car, hot rod and classic truck hobby industry. It offers hundreds of styles of wheels and accessories. Coker Tire says the company has the most complete line of steel and wire wheels in the automotive aftermarket today.

“We are committed to continuing Wheel Vintiques' great traditions while striving to improve administrative, customer service and manufacturing aspects of the business,” says Wade Kawasaki, executive vice president of the Coker Group.

"Wheel Vintiques will continue operations similar to a stand alone business and will distribute its product through its current distribution system.” He adds that  Coker Tire will not be distributing Wheel Vintiques products, and will continue supplying its current wheel brands.

Mike Stallings will help direct the new company as a manufacturing and process consultant.
