Tire Dealers in the US

The Tire Dealers industry is recovering quickly from recession-induced declines. Changes in consumer preferences toward more fuel-efficient tires and pent-up replacement tire demand have helped the industry turn around. The industry managed to avoid the long-term malaise that plagued the domestic automotive sector during the past decade because replacement tires are required for all vehicles and are not tied directly to new cars, which have factory-installed tires. Competition from big-box retailers like Walmart, which offer lower prices and installation services, will continue to pose a threat to operators.

The Tire Dealers industry retails tires and tire tubes for passenger cars, sport-utility vehicles and commercial trucks. Businesses that offer maintenance services in addition to tire sales are included in this industry; however, mail order and online tire sellers are excluded.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
