SimpleTire was co-founded by brothers, Andy and Josh Chalofsky, and friend, Kenny Pratt. They shared a common vision to create a company that would offer people the largest selection of tires at the best possible prices, all across the country.
The idea emerged when Andy and Josh were working in their family’s brick and mortar tire business and realized the business could work well in an e-commerce environment. As the market began to shift towards new technologies, it was apparent to them that e-commerce would be the next forefront for the tire industry, and wanted to create a solution that would incorporate private businesses.
In 2012, the trio successfully converted the traditional business model into a technology-driven model, which linked independent tire distributors across the country into one seamless e-commerce network, creating SimpleTire.
Today, SimpleTire’s network stretches across the country with more than 10,000 installation centers and over 3,000 independent supply points. It employs over 100 people and supports thousands of local businesses.
