Dean Tire Service got its start when David Dean of Louisville, Kentucky founded a company delivering tires for wholesale and retail sale throughout the Midwest. Over the years, David Senior passed the reins of Dean Tires to his son David. In the 1960s, the company expanded by creating Dean Tire and Rubber Co., a private label tire line. By the mid 1990s, the company’s annual sales had grown to more than $60 million, and 2 million units of Dean-brand radial passenger, light truck and medium truck tires were sold in 10 countries. After selling his company to Cooper Tire & Rubber Company in January 1999, Mr. Dean retired. Dean Tires has always been known for top-quality, rugged tires at competitive prices. Look for new tires to be introduced soon.
