Initial Review, 7,000 Miles on Tires
May 16, 2007

This car had OEM Michelin MXVs which let me down during a high performance track day. I went to KDW2s after reading reviews here and found these are a whole new animal. Phenomenal grip for a tire with such good wet traction. I dont even worry about my lead foot wife during rainy runs on high crowned NY highways. The tire is responsive, stable at speed and not especially noisy. But the traction still surprises me wet or dry.

Young African Leaders Visit Tire Rack

Monday, July 28, 2014 by Tire Rack Team

We recently welcomed over 20 young African leaders from 17 countries as part of the Young African Leaders Initiative program hosted by the University of Notre Dame to our headquarters in South Bend, Indiana. Students listened as Matt Edmonds, vice president, told the Tire Rack story and were given a tour of our facility.

As part of the program, the students learn leadership training, academic coursework and mentoring to create new opportunities in Africa where they can put these skills to work. The students learned how we grew from a small shop in Indianapolis to where we are today and how the entrepreneurial spirit of our founder, Pete Veldman, was key to our success. Matt also explained to the group how integrity and great customer service are our foundation and that both play an important role in building a successful company.

It was clear the students enjoyed their time at Tire Rack. They were filled with energy and loved taking photos in our studio, as well as on our test track.

Where did the young leaders go from here? Most went on to visit other companies across the Midwest, including IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Chicago Cubs. A few will also go on to receive an eight-week internship with an American non-governmental organization or business.

We’d like to thank them for taking the time to visit Tire Rack. It's exciting to see the enthusiasm they displayed during their time here and we wish them all the best in the future!
