Local business owner, Ricky Stephenson joined Tire Pros, a franchise of the nation’s largest network of elite independent tire dealers with more than 700 locations nationwide, in January, 2015. Ricky has rebranded his two businesses in Irving to Rick’s Car Care Centers Tire Pros.
Ricky has always been and will continue to be committed to serving Irving and the surrounding communities by offering the same great complete repair and tire service from their professional staff that residents have come to trust over the past three decades. Rick’s Beltline location is managed by EJ Forrest, who has over 15 years of experience in the automotive industry.
“We are looking forward to the future and seeing all of the opportunities this change will bring, for us as well as my customers,” said Ricky. “We joined Tire Pros because of the growth in the number of independent tire dealers joining its network, the wonderful support from my American Tire Distributors sales team and the incredible marketing support,” he said. “We want to make sure everyone is clear that while we are a joining Tire Pros, we are still the same automotive business and we’re more than just a tire store.”
With its affiliation, Ricky will now be able to offer exclusive rebates and promotions to its consumers (entitled “Local Dealer Days”), offer competitive prices on several major brand name tires and provide a nationwide warranty honored at over 700 Tire Pros dealers as well as an additional 30,000 service warranty centers nationwide. What’s more, consumers now receive complimentary roadside assistance with every service purchase. As a show of good faith, and as part of their continued commitment to their customers, Rick’s Car Care Centers Tire Pros will continue to service all previous purchases at their location.
“While this transition has been exciting and rejuvenating, we realize it can possibly be confusing to consumers. So we want people to know it’s still us running the store, along with our longtime employees, but now under the Tire Pros brand name, we have greater freedom and flexibility to offer more competitive pricing and pass the savings onto our customers. It feels good to belong to a nationwide group of elite, independent tire dealers and to know that if any of our customers travel to other parts of the country, we’ll have the confidence that they will be treated similarly as they are at our stores”, said Ricky.
