Tire Dealer of the Year

Tire Dealer of the Year

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.

Nominations are now closed.

Tire Dealer of the Year Award


Chip Wood

Chip Wood

Tire Discounters

The year was 1976. Armed with $5,000 in hard-earned savings and a matching loan from his father, 22-year-old Chip Wood opened his first tire store - a rough and tumble former gas station on the east side of Cincinnati, complete with missing windows and a garage door that was too small to accommodate a car. Nearly 45 years later, Wood's dealership, Tire Discounters, is one of the country's largest tire store chains, a state-of-the-art operation on the cutting edge of tire and auto service retailing. And Wood is MTD's 2020 Tire Dealer of the Year.
