Goodyear purchased Kelly Tire and moved it to Akron, Ohio. As a subsidiary, Kelly Tire enjoys more than 115 years in the tire business. In 2010, the company made a major change, going from limited distribution to selling nationwide, and its tires are available throughout the United States. As the oldest tire brand in the US and a subsidiary of Goodyear, Kelly Tire still upholds your “best or nothing” mentality. The brand strives to give the best possible quality at the best possible prices.
