Lincoln College of Technology in Indianapolis welcomes Tire Discounters, ranked sevent on the Modern Tire Dealer 100 list of independent tire dealers in the U.S., to the area.

"At Lincoln Tech, our automotive program is preparing students for rewarding, in-demand careers in the automotive industry," says Donovan Morgan, career services advisor at Lincoln Tech Indianapolis. "Tire Discounters is bringing more high paying jobs to central Indiana, and that’s a win for everyone."

Eldon Riggs, the tire dealership's director of retail operations, says Tire Discounters isn’t your average retailer. "We go beyond what’s expected for our customers because at 70 miles an hour, those details matter."

Part of that philosophy includes offering a free alignment with every four-tire purchase with standard installation.

Tire Discounters employs more than 1,200 people in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama. For more information, visit www.tirediscounters.com.
