Belle Tire Auburn Hills, MI
- Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
For more than 90 years, family-owned Belle Tire has been a staple in the communities where it does business throughout Michigan, with 30 years in northern Ohio. The tire retailer's more than 90 locations offer the lowest tire prices in the business along with a variety of automotive repair services ranging from auto glass repair and replacement, brakes, alignments, batteries, shocks and struts, exhaust system repair and oil changes.
Belle Tire was founded in 1922 by Sam Waze with the first location on Grand River Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. Sam named his business after his wife, Belle.
Sam and Belle's son, Herb Waze, worked with his father and later took over the family business.
In the 1960s, Don Barnes Sr., a Kelly Tire salesman, decided to no longer sell tires to Belle Tire and he partnered with Waze instead. The partnership proved to be successful with several Michigan locations opening over the following two decades including Roseville, West Bloomfield, Troy and Traverse City.
In the 1980s, the Barnes family bought Waze's shares and continued expansion of the business through acquisitions of American Tire, Delta Tire, Great Lakes Tire and Elkin Tire followed by the acquisition of Tireman and Metro 25 in the 1990s.
In 2007, Belle Tire added glass repair to its menu of auto services, eventually, becoming the largest windshield replacement and repair company in Michigan.
Today, the family-owned business has more than 2,000 employees and 90 retail locations that deliver tires and automotive services, including shocks and struts, oil changes, brakes and batteries to customers throughout Michigan and Ohio.
Belle Tire's commitment to family and its hometown roots continues to be at the forefront of its business model as it has been for more than 90 years. Don Barnes Jr. serves at the Chairman of Belle Tire and the third generation of Barnes' is also part of the team with Don Barnes III as President of Retail Operations.
The company is continuing to expand its retail footprint with plans to open new locations, including expansion into Indiana in 2015.
Belle Tire has been a community staple throughout Michigan and northern Ohio, impacting the areas where it does business through activities that go beyond its in-store experience.
The company has donated thousands of dollars through its In-Kind Donation Program -- the program supports local charitable events by donating gift cards to help raise funds for community causes. There is also the Belle Tire Hockey Club, which the company has sponsored for nearly two decades, that provides a fun, safe, competitive environment for more than 5,000 youth ages 5 to 18.
Belle Tire signed on as the presenting sponsor for the Detroit Pistons' Game Changers program in 2015. The program allows the retailer the opportunity to continue its tradition of corporate giving.
As presenting sponsors, Belle Tire is able to spread its charitable footprint by celebrating unsung heroes all over the state who are making their communities better in big and small ways.
