Dealers participating in the Hyundai Authorized Tire Center Program provide:
"Year-to-date, our dealers have experienced more than a 20 percent increase in tire sales when the industry has only seen a five percent increase," said Mike Knipe, senior group manager, customer satisfaction and service business development, Hyundai Motor America.
"This is an important milestone for the partnership. This rapid and sustained success provides a good indication that there will be many more significant achievements in the future."
Hyundai is now a leader in dealership tire sales with the capability to continue its surge in owner loyalty and improved customer service. In addition to selling one million tires, Hyundai dealers have also experienced a boost in parts-and-service sales nationwide. One million tire sales in just three-and-half-years showcases that Hyundai dealers have capitalized in an area where many dealerships lose revenue and future service visits. Hyundai Authorized Tire Centers help attract and retain customers.
Tires are an important component of the driving experience. They are the only four points of contact between a customer's vehicle and the road. They contribute immensely to overall driver and passenger safety. There is much more to a tire than just its size. Tires affect acceleration, traction, steering stability, comfort, noise, braking, cornering, load-carrying capacity, fuel economy, and overall handling and performance. Each Hyundai vehicle has performance and safety standards and undergoes extensive evaluations to determine which tires are best suited for each vehicle. The goal of Hyundai and Dealer Tire is to provide tires that meet or exceed those standards.
