Check Your Wholesale Tire for the Open Road

Updated on November 11, 2013

It’s been said that if you want to see America you won’t find it in the towns and cities and countryside but on the open road. We love to ride the highways and byways of our country and we love our cars and motorcycles. Somehow, we Americans are most at home away from home, under the sun and rain and over the blacktop and macadam.

Of course, if we are going to drive our cars and trucks and motorcycles, we need the tires to drive on. And we don’t want to pay top dollar for tires if we can help it. Whether you run a tire dealership, own a fleet of delivery vans, or are just a commuter looking for a good deal, wholesale tires are the way to go. You can buy wholesale tires in quantity or one at a time, depending on the wholesaler. Many would argue that to get the best performance tires, you will have to pay full price for them, so you might not want to go the route of cheap tires when it comes to your car. Either way, why pay retail prices when you can go wholesale on your tires!

What Is Wholesale?

If you are a tire dealership or a commercial enterprise with a fleet of vehicles, large or small, you will probably be familiar with the concept of wholesale and wholesale tires. If you aren’t in the business, though, you may be wondering, just what is wholesale and what does it mean to buy wholesale tires? Why is it to my advantage to go the wholesale route?

Typically, wholesalers buy products directly from the manufacturer in very large quantities. A wholesale tire company might buy a lot of a thousand tires at a time from Firestone, Goodyear, or another of the tire manufacturers. The wholesale tire company then distributes these big lots of tires to tire dealerships or any company in need of tires. In the past, wholesalers dealt mostly with other businesses, offering their services of distribution and order management to the companies they worked with. Because the wholesaler bought in bulk, they could afford to sell to tire retailers at a very good price. The retailers could then sell directly to the average car or truck driver at a profit.

Of course, this is still the role of the wholesale tire company, to sell at a low cost to retailers. However, some wholesalers have gotten into the business of selling directly to the consumer themselves. Because of the good price tire wholesalers get from the tire manufacturers, the wholesaler can afford to sell tires to the consumer at significant savings. A tire wholesaler might not have a fancy showroom—they might not have a showroom at all—but their cheap prices more than make up for that for many customers.
