About Sumitomo Tires
|Sumitomo has always been the exception to
the rule. Our uncommon attributes not only separate us from other brands,
they give our dealers unrivaled advantages.
On one hand, Sumitomo is a major worldwide brand, respected on every
continent for technological excellence. On the other, we are positioned as a
dealer-oriented profit-builder, a first-tier br& at second-tier pricing.

perspective. We are not involved in disruptive channels, OE, & mass
merchants that drain inventory & drain our dealers' abilities to compete.

Because we look at the long-term, we develop relationships that are mutually
beneficial & responsible. At the same time, our distribution has grown by
leaps & bounds over the last two years. That growth has come because we
operate on the same philosophy as you, & place prime importance on taking
care of our dealers first.
A simple, common sense approach to business keeps our dealers competitive.
We offer controlled & consistent programs & pricing across the board,
for every dealer in every territory. Sumitomo Tire presents a distribution
plan that both protects the integrity of your business & optimizes our
brand-building opportunities. In that way, you face less same-br&
competition & can profitably grow your business.
