Discount Tire has purchased the retail tire and automotive maintenance operations of Dunn Tire, which provides parts and installations for brakes, lube and oil services, front-end repairs and state vehicle inspections at 25 locations in western and central New York and Pennsylvania. Financial details of the transaction, which closed Sept. 30, 2023, were not disclosed. Discount Tire operates more than 1,150 stores across the U.S.
Dunn Tire Managing Director of Retail Operations Robert Clark will continue to manage the brand’s day-to-day retail and service operations. Additionally, Dunn Tire’s investors will retain independent ownership of Exxpress Tire Delivery, a wholesale business operating five distribution centers serving thousands of accounts in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. That business, which employs more than 200 people, will continue to be led by its current president David Simons.
Discount Tire, which unveiled its Pit Pass concept store in November 2022, is the retail brand name of the Reinalt-Thomas Corporation, which also operates as America’s Tire in parts of California and Pennsylvania. The company also owns Tire Rack, a consumer-direct source and wholesaler of tires, wheels and accessories.
