About Us


The history of the business started with Bill's father, Arthur Cook.  He started Black Diamond Tire Company which soon turned into Cook's Tire Center.  The tire business became a family affair.  Bill's father, brother, sisters, and brother-in-law joined into the tire business, spanning from Maryland, Delaware, North Carolina, and Virginia.  


Operating since 1966, Wholesale Tire Company was started as a home-based business.  Bill bought used tires and casings and sold them from his home. He did this for about 2 years, until he rented a building on Washington Boulevard in Jessup, Maryland.  From there, he moved to Dorsey Road in Hanover, Maryland where he bought property and two buildings. He built a 20,000 SF warehouse to store the tires. 


Now we reside in Clifton Forge, Virginia  in an 85,000 SF facility just off of Route 64, and have been in this area since 1987.  From our facility, we stock and repair tires in a chamber.  Check out the photo gallery for a snapshot of some of the tires we have in stock.

 We ship tires all over the country and overseas, and deliver with a minimum order of 300 tires.
