RHD Tire Opens Chicago-Area Distribution Center

Sept. 19, 2022

Grand Rapids, Mich.-based wholesale distributor RHD Tire Inc.’s newest distribution center - a 35,000-square-foot facility in Glendale Heights, Ill. - is up and running.

The warehouse, which is RHD Tire’s fourth distribution center, opened this week. It’s located about 10 miles south of Chicago O’Hare Airport.

The company’s other distribution centers are located in Grand Rapids; Detroit, Mich.; and Indianapolis, Ind.

The new distribution center will carry “all original equipment” passenger and light truck tire brands, according to Kevin Haviland, one of the company’s owners.

RHD Tire supplies tires to car dealerships. “We’ve always specialized in GM, Ford and Chrysler dealerships. We have a relationship with almost every OE brand.

“We’re also in traditional wholesale. We have some secondary supply relationships with some tire manufacturers and other regional wholesalers.”

The company opened its Indianapolis warehouse in 2019 “and we had success there very quickly," notes Haviland.

Putting a new distribution center in the Chicago, Ill., market was “the next logical step for us. We like to put distribution centers where people are. We have a pretty good sales force here and they’re making sure everyone knows we're in business.”
