Tire Discounter buys YKW

YKWThe Tire Discounter Group has announced the acquisition of Markham-based YKW Motorsports Canada, a factory direct importer / distributor of TUV European certified alloy wheels. The acquisition provides the Tire Discounter Group exclusivity on three alloy wheel lines, including Euro-Klasse.

“We are very excited about the acquisition of YKW Canada,” said Richard Bender, VP of business operations for Tire Discounter Group. “It provides us with direct access to factory production in Malaysia and Thailand, which in turn will allow our dealers a stronger product offering to their customers.”

Enjoyment Returned

An out of town customer had an audio amplifier and two new snow tires installed in his local town before a long trip. Unfortunately, the amplifier was hanging on by one screw through some carpet and the front tires were not very well balanced which made for a horrible road trip to Florida.

Upon his return he had us tidy up the amp install, change his oil and Road Force balance his new tires; here’s what he had to say a few days later:

“The tires runs so smooth now, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.”
“With the new HID headlights you installed, the stereo working properly, and in general, a good working car, I’m quite enjoying it right now.”
“All I can think about is when do I get to take it for another drive!”
