Tirescanner Adds Mobile Tire Installation

Tirescanner, an online tire retailer, has launched a national, direct-to-consumer mobile tire installation service that’s designed to complement its network of brick-and-mortar partner locations. The new service allows customers to receive next-day installation of any brand and size of tire at home or at work.

The company’s mobile installation service is now available in 35 states and will cover all 50 states by 2021, according to an announcement dated Feb. 20. Tirescanner’s brick-and-mortar network of independent partners currently spans 48 states.

Tirescanner was founded by Mike Welch, who serves as its CEO. He’s no stranger to online tire retailing. In 2015, Welch sold Blackcircles.com, a large European online tire retailer, to Michelin.

Tirescanner is billed as an end-to-end platform enabling consumers to research, purchase and schedule tire installation appointments online. The company supports local businesses by partnering with trusted store-based and van-based tire retailers.
