  • Survey – Your Tire Vendor

    Posted by Site Administrator on February 26, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Is your tire vendor:

    _____ Local (in my town)

    _____ Regional (not in my town, but close enough to deliver to me same day)

    _____ National or multi-state (takes one day or more to receive tires)

    Feel free to name your vendor if you like: _________________________

    Do you order your tires primarily:

    _____ On line

    _____ Over the phone

    I also use a multi-line distributor in the next town (Firestone, Goodyear) who sometimes has better prices AND inventory, but my customers are just as likely to go to him. We do have a good relationship, he sends me brake & ft. end customers. (He does’t do any repairs, just tires)
