Let’s get the facts straight. The tire shop at Thunderhill is NOT closing. We are changing our business model. The name will be Thunderhill Tire Service. We are getting out of the inventory of tires for the most part. We will be carrying a couple sets of the most popular tires just for unexpected mishaps at the track.

The plan is to be a drop ship service center for Tire Rack, On Edge Performance, Aim Tire, Hoosier West and other distributors. We have been in contact with most tire distributors and will be working closely with them in the future to provide service for their customers at Thunderhill so they will have the ability to sell tires to their existing customers and current Thunderhill customers and ship them to
Thunderhill for mounting and balancing. This will keep our guys at the shop busy and eliminate the need for vendors to haul trailers and stock to the track.

How does this work? If you call Thunderhill we will direct, you to a
distributor of the tire you are looking for. Order the tires from them and they will ship them to Thunderhill with your name and contact number. We will contact you to arrange the service for the event you are here for or you can email us to confirm arrangement.

The tire shop is not going to close. We just changed to a pure service tire shop. We are not going to try and compete with all the online distribution or direct distributors. We can’t match the price but we can beat the service. We are quick, clean and friendly and will always do our best to make sure your track day is smooth and worry free.

Be forewarned, more expensive if you buy from them directly.

Voddenomics at its finest...paid $215 per tire PLUS tax PLUS $25 each mount and balance AND $7 disposal fee each for 205/50/15 Toyo RR's!


Can you say bend over???   For this reason I will never give the tire shop another penny!  When gas was $4-$5 a gallon and the track was charging $6...I get it. But when gas went down to $2 and now maybe $3 they always stayed at $6  :angry:
