Discount Tire Corporate | How We Started, 24 Sept 2015 [cached]
The company was founded in 1960 when founder Bruce T. Halle rented a building on Stadium Boulevard in Ann Arbor, MI. Although the inventory consisted of only six tires (four of which were retreads) and the showroom was not quite the showroom we see today, faith, vision and hard work were then, and still remain, the foundation on which this company has grown and prospered.
As with any new start up, Bruce Halle's venture faced numerous challenges - perhaps one of the biggest being that he didn't own an air compressor. Having only six tires and a portable air tank, Halle would race back and forth to a nearby gas station, filling the tires with air as he sold them. Out of necessity, he became a master at inventory turn. In addition to being the only salesman, Bruce Halle was the tire technician, accountant, store computer, sign painter and cleaning crew.

Michael Rosenbaum Talks About Discount Tire's Bruce Halle & Why Jobless Grads Must Read His Book May 22, 2012 By Financial BinLeave a Comment
On Tuesday, May 22, 2012, Michael Rosenbaum, founder of Quadrant Five and author of the new biography about Bruce Halle, SIX TIRES, NO PLAN: The Impossible Journey of the Most Inspirational Leader that (Almost) Nobody Knows, joined host David Domzalski on Financial Bin Radio.
Currently worth more than $4.2 billion, Bruce Halle, the founder of the nation's largest independent tire chain, was unemployed and nearly $20,000 in debt when he started with just six tires and no plan. But Halle transformed his first small store in Ann Arbor into Discount Tire, now with over 800 stores across the country-and it wasn't magic that got him there.
Michael will explain Halle's winning strategies to wealth and how anyone today can apply them too, such as:
