Discount Tire Sponsors Easter Jeep Safari 2012

April  2nd-8th, 2012

MOAB, UT – Discount Tire kicked off the Easter Jeep Safari yet again this year.  This is their 4th consecutive year sponsoring the event.  Unlike some of the other vendors Discount Tire takes a different approach with their involvement. Rather than spending time in a booth at the vendor area, they actually spend their time on the trails with their customers.

With the support of Discount Tire’s corporate office, their Utah region, and Discount Tire Direct, the company is an Official Trail Sponsor for 6 guided trail rides during the week of Easter Jeep Safari.  Mark MacGuinness, Vice President of Discount Tire Direct commented, “Our Trail Sponsorships offer us a chance to connect with our customers, test the products we sell and build inter-company camaraderie.”   Paul Witherspoon Vice President of Discount Tire’s Utah region added, “This year we have invited about 50 of our Utah personnel out to make friends with our customers and get to know each other even better.  We’ve also rented a number of Jeeps and we’ve fitted them with some of the latest and greatest products.   I can’t think of a better way for our people to experience the off-road products we sell.  This is the real world, this is Moab!”

Along with their trail sponsorships, Discount Tire also co-sponsors the Official Red Rock 4-Wheelers Club volunteer dinner with Falken Tire.  The two companies also donate generously to the clubs “Mud fund”.  This fund is used to help keep 4×4 trails open and maintained in the canyon lands of Utah.

I've been tearing it up in the wheel and tire industry for 10 years now. I am an off road enthusiast and given the choice I'll take the long way home. My daily driver is a 2004 Unlimited Jeep Wrangler(LJ) with a 4.5" long travel suspension and 35" tires. I've wheeled in 11 states so far and eventually it will be 50.
