Big O Tires, LLC Business Overview
"Big O has been around since 1962. There’s a lot of history and great stories and great people who helped build this up. You take a lot of pride in being part of this corporation. Every year when we go (to the annual convention), it just makes you want to carry on the tradition. ... I remember blowing up balloons for kids and tying them onto wrists. Now I’m blowing up balloons and putting them on their kids’ wrists. We’re not trying to get people to pay for things they don’t need and make their bills huge. We tell them what they need and then see how much they can afford, and take care of them. That’s the attitude we take and that’s why people shop with us and their kids shop with us and their kids’ kids shop with us."
"I could not find a better business than I have today. With the distribution, the product lines, the size of (Big O Tires parent companies) TBC Corp. and Sumitomo, there is nothing better. A few years ago when the U.S. put a big tariff on Chinese tires, it created huge inventory and supply chain problems for a lot of people, but we never felt it. TBC and Sumitomo were big enough and smart enough to adjust, so we weren’t disrupted and we didn’t see a spike in our costs. That’s just one example."
