2U Tire Named April Small Business of the Month

FAIRHOPE, Ala. – The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize 2U Tire as the April Small Business of the Month.

2U Tire is leading the revolution in onsite tire and wheel installation, bringing rotations and balances directly to customers. Owner Scott Blair says, "We start off working with our clients to understand their needs and expectations for the use of the vehicle and how they want it to handle, then select a few tire or wheel products to meet those needs.  This approach is vastly different from the usual ‘What tire size do you have and here is what is costs’ method.”

Once they’ve sourced the product at the best price, they shop up at the customer’s home, office, ball field or wherever is convenient to mount, precision balance and reset the tire pressure system while the client continues being productive or enjoying family time.

Blair has also invented and patented a tool for the custom wheel industry branded the Wheel FIT® and recently added a new version branded as the GRYPR System™. These tools allow him to determine the exact measurements for the widest tire possible without rubbing, a system perfect for fitting modified vehicles like muscle cars, classics and hot rods.

After 25 years of working in the tire and wheel industry and serving as a certified instructor for the Tire Industry Association, Blair got involved in the mobile tire business while offering services through a franchise startup. He and his best friend in Phoenix, Arizona put their heads together and launched their business model. They’ve now grown to 3 vans, 2 employees and $750,000 in annual revenue. The Daphne location opened two years ago.

Blair says they’re experiencing tremendous growth here on the Eastern Shore thanks to networking, Chamber events, word of mouth and doing the very best work possible. He hopes to be able to hire a tech/manager for his current van this year and is preparing to scale next year with a second van in Daphne.

U2 Tire’s primary clients are fleets, business owners, agents, specialty car owners and anyone who places a value on their time. This is the perfect service for regular maintenance like rotation and balance at a time and place that’s convenient for you.
