Each year Modern Tire Dealer selects one tire dealer for its annual Tire Dealer of the Year award. The collection of past winners is an honor roll of inspiring innovators and leaders who have changed the tire industry. When a new tire dealer is selected to join those ranks, he or she is highlighted in our September issue and featured on the cover of MTD. The Tire Dealer of the Year's favorite charity also receives a donation of $1,000 from MTD, and a portion of the proceeds from all congratulatory ads that appear in the September issue.
The deadline to submit a nomination for 2019 is May 24, 2019.
