The year was 1976, the groovy tunes of (Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty by K.C. and The Sunshine Band played at discos across Greater Louisville. On TV, Happy Days had families huddled around the TV, Rocky rocked the box office and Bold Forbes graced Churchill Downs by winning the 102nd running of the Kentucky Derby.
It was also the year that Chip Wood established his first Tire Discounters store in Cincinnati, Ohio. Chip’s passion for his customers and his higher standard of integrity helped establish Tire Discounters as an organization that would transcend the entire tire business.
Fast forward 40 years later, the hip-hop sounds of Drake boom through the air. The Big Bang Theory is the most watched TV show and at the box office, Finding Dory is the top fish. At Churchill Downs, the two-year-old thoroughbred Nyquist won the 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby. So, while pop culture has evolved in the past 40 years, so has Tire Discounters, adding over 100 stores across five states.
In 2010, Tire Discounters expanded its business in Kentucky by opening its first store in Louisville. Today, we have grown to 10 stores across the region. Our stores reflect our core values as an organization, a customer friendly environment, an environmentally efficient building, and an emphasis on higher standards.
