History

RightTurn.com is all about finding you the right tire at a fair all-in-one price. How is that possible, you ask? RightTurn.com is part of Dealer Tire, and if you haven't heard of us, that's by design. We've been working behind the scenes for a very, very long time.


1918 - It begins.

In 1918, Walter J. Mueller opened his first tire retail store in Cleveland, Ohio.

In 1945, Walter was joined by his son, Walter Dean Mueller.

In the 1980s, Mueller Tire became Mueller Tire & Brake, and a third generation
joined the business. Brothers Dean and Scott grew the business by more than 200% in five years.

In 1985, Mueller Tire began supplying its first automotive dealership with inventory, a retail selling guide, and training.

In 1989, Mueller Tire began selling tires to automobile dealers and created its wholesale division, Dealer Tire.

The name Dealer Tire was used for the first time in 1995.

In 1999, Mercedes-Benz came to us to run their tire program, and a new business was born.

2000 - 2001 brought about the sale of the retail stores so we could focus on the Dealer Tire business. Mueller Tire separated the Dealer Tire wholesale division and became Dealer Tire, LLC.

In 2012, the idea for RightTurn.com came about. Growing up in the tire business, Dean and Scott are always looking to help customers buy tires easily. Not just any tires, though. We only sell tires that are designed to maintain your vehicle's safety and performance.

Currently, more than 8,300 dealers are registered.
