Instead the operation extends to products across tyre categories including: commercial, agricultural, OTR, industrial, ATV, and even vintage tyres.

This means that SimpleTire sells from range of 50 million tyres across 300 brands from more than 2000 suppliers via 10,000 installers….

Surprised they don't include motorcycle tires.

If they're so big, why have I never heard of them? Is this some other company DBA?

Ive bought plenty of online tires from tire rack, tread depot and even Mavis. DT Ive shopped but never had a compelling deal. Never heard of these guys.

How does Tire Rack manage to be #1??? I was expecting DTD to have that spot.

I think it's only spelled tire in company names or URLs. The author's text seems to use tyre consistently.

Im guessing the ranking is for online companies only.

DTD is probably being lumped with DT brick and mortar, so possibly excluded from this list.

Who? This outfit sounds similar to TireBuyer.com, their shipping free to a certified installer only.

From their website info:

"Shipping to your personal mechanic doesn’t qualify for our BEST shipping rate, but you’ll receive a better rate than shipping to your home or office."

"Ship to home if you don’t mind slightly higher shipping rates and getting your hands dirty."

https://simpletire.com/tire-shipping-and-installation

Doesn't really make clear if shipping to certified installer free. Like to see price comparisons to TR and DTD on same tires.

Also, terms such as "largest" are meaningless without context.

Total number of tires sold (or tires and tyres.)

Total dollar volume of sales.

Total number of warehouses.

What does largest even mean?

I have major issues with tirebuyer's parent company American Tire Distributors. They are one of our vendors and they have had a string of reps that visit us and cause all sorts of unnecessary drama. One of their reps pushed me off my computer at work and started deleting my bookmarks for their competitors. Their current rep goes out of his way to disrespect myself and the other parts guy that works back counter. Apparently he doesn't realize we do the majority of the ordering, which can be tracked by our initials being part of the purchase order. The final straw with him was when he tried to embarrass me in front of my General Manager. Called me a liar when I proved what he was saying wasn't accurate. There is a Facebook page for parts people and I lead a boycott nationwide from all the Ford dealers to protest the way he and their other reps treat the people actually ordering from them.

^^ Yeah, certainly wasn't promoting TireBuyer as not a fan of that tire purchase business model. Just saying that their tire purchase procedure looks similar to topic company. Sometimes the hot links built into bitog now might make it look like some promotion there.

Sorry, went on a OT rant there. If anyone wants, I can PM them some of the stuff the guy did to us. It is interesting how many of these online tire vendors there are.
