From humble beginnings, an industry leader is born.
The Big O Tires story begins back in 1962, just as America's new love affair with the automobile was hitting high gear. The market for replacement tires was exploding, and independent tire dealers found themselves struggling to compete in the face of low prices offered by major tire manufacturers' own company stores. Big O's founding fathers were a handful of progressive independent tire dealers who decided to band together to form a tire-buying cooperative so that they could secure volume pricing and keep their customers happy. Their concept worked. In the years that followed, the Big O Tires co-op evolved into a full-fledged franchise as it continued to find innovative ways to harness the power of the collective to benefit independent dealerships and their customers.
Over a half-century later, Big O Tires has become one of North America's largest retail tire franchisors, with nearly 400 independently-owned and operated locations in 19 states, providing customers with a broad range of automotive services in addition to quality tires, wheels and accessories. Big O has become an industry role model admired for its innovative approach to franchising and unmatched customer loyalty ratings.
In 1996, Big O Tires joined forces with one of the largest and most respected tire marketers in the nation when it became part of the TBC Corporation, one of North America’s largest marketers of automotive replacement tires with more than 3,200 franchised and company-operated tire and automotive service centers. Through worldwide operations spanning wholesale, retail, and franchise, TBC provides customers best-in-class brands and automotive maintenance and repair services with the underlying mission to exceed customer expectations.
As Big O Tires continues to thrive and adapt to an ever-changing marketplace, it remains rooted in its humble beginnings as a proud collective of independent dealers committed to putting its customers first.
Big O Tires – The Team You Trust ®
At Big O Tires stores, we have made arrangements with professional recyclers to pickup the fluids we remove from vehicles and recycle the majority of these fluids. If they can't be recycled, they are disposed of properly. If you change any of the fluids in your vehicle yourself, be sure to take the old fluids to a recycling center.
Car batteries contain hazardous lead. That lead, along with other battery components, can be safely reclaimed for manufacturing new batteries. Even the plastic casing is ground down and reused. Big O Tires cares about the environment. We recycle the exchanged batteries that we receive from our customers.
You can instantly improve your car's fuel economy by keeping all of your tires—no matter the type—properly inflated. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, if a tire with a recommended pressure of 35 psi drops just 8 psi, it will experience a whopping rolling resistance increase of 12.5 percent (or about 50 cents).
Big O Tires is a great place to work and a great place to succeed. We have career opportunities at our corporate headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. If you're looking for an opportunity to strive for excellence, Big O Tires is a great place to consider!
