About Big O

The Big O Tires story begins back in 1962. The market for replacement tires was exploding, and independent tire dealers found themselves struggling to compete with major tire manufacturers’ own company stores. Big O’s founding fathers, a handful of progressive independent tire dealers, realized that they could band together to form a tire-buying cooperative to secure volume pricing. In the years that followed, Big O Tires evolved into a full-fledged franchise as it continued to find innovative ways to benefit independent dealerships and their customers. Big O has over 450 locations in 25 states and is still growing.

In 1996, Big O Tires joined forces with TBC Corporation. For more than 60 years, TBC Corporation (TBC), one of North America’s largest marketers of automotive replacement tires through a multi-channel strategy, has been a tire company ahead of the curve. 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. TBC serves wholesale customers in the United States, Canada and Mexico through TBC Brands(Big O Tires® , NTB®, Tire Kingdom®, and Midas®.), NTW, TBC International, and TBC de Mexico.
