PARKERSBURG — RNR Tire Express, a leading franchise retailer for tires and custom wheels, has opened its first franchise in Parkersburg.
RNR Tire Express at 1108 Mary St. is owned by the brothers Josh and Justin Fanelli, who have owned and operated AutoMed for five years. The tire store is the first for RNR in a pre-existing, full-service auto tire shop making a full transition to become a part of the RNR Tire Express franchise.
“It’s exciting to be the first franchisee to break ground here in West Virginia,” Josh said. “We’re eager to be able to serve the people and families of Parkersburg through use of a new concept like RNR, which will fill a void that’s existed in the region’s consumer market for quite some time.”
The Fanelli brothers decided they and the community would be better served under the RNR name.
RNR has carved out a niche in the tire and wheel industry with convenient, flexible payment options to fit different budgets. The company installs high-quality tires and custom wheels to a growing market of underserved consumers, a far more targeted focus for both brothers that they trust will help them to play a more impactful role in their community, and aid them in its goal of five locations in the state.
“Our brand’s entrance into West Virginia has been a long time coming,” said Larry Sutton, founder and CEO of RNR Tire Express. “The agreement is a perfect representation of the commitment our team has to serving as many communities and families across the country as possible.”
RNR Tire Express is a national franchise retailer of tires and custom wheels that was established in 2000. The company has more than 190 locations in 29 states.
