The Big O Tires story begins back in 1962. The market for replacement tires was exploding, and independent tire dealers found themselves struggling to compete with major tire manufacturers’ own company stores. This was the first big oh no. Luckily, Big O’s founding fathers, a handful of progressive independent tire dealers, realized that they could band together to form a tire-buying cooperative to secure volume pricing. In the years that followed, Big O Tires evolved into a full-fledged franchise as it continued to find innovative ways to benefit independent dealerships and their customers. This was the very first Big O Yes.
Then in 1996, Big O Tires joined forces with TBC Corporation, one of North America’s largest marketers of automotive replacement tires. Now, with over 450 locations in 25 states, we can provide a Big O Yes for more people than ever before. And we’re still growing!
