More than a Tire Company
Over the past 70 years, what started out as a single-bay service station has grown into a respected tire company with 275 locations in 26 states—one of the largest independent tire companies in North America. Best-One Tire & Service® Group is among the largest purchasers of Bridgestone, Firestone, Mastercraft, Continental, General, Yokohama and Goodyear tires in the United States.
We offer a wide selection of passenger and light truck style tires, plus commercial truck tires and fleet service, agricultural tires, and full-service automotive centers across the nation. We’re also one of the country’s largest Bandag Retreaders.
The Best-One model empowers our business partners to live the entrepreneurial dream. Each locally based partner independently owns and operates one or more Best-One locations so they can make the best decisions to serve their local market. As Best-One partners, they also have access to our collective buying power. Since our tire company puts millions of tires on the road every year, we can ensure you get the best price on tires and automotive services.
Built on a Remarkable Legacy
Best-One Tire & Service was founded in 1948 when Paul Zurcher went into business in Monroe, Indiana, with a $300 loan funded through the GI Bill. Paul’s successful business model prioritized investing in others. Throughout the years, the Zurcher Family has continued to invest in dreams by forming partnerships with hundreds of entrepreneurs—each sharing a passion for the tire and service industry.
Though Paul passed away in 2015, the family’s involvement remains strong with the second and third generations of the Zurcher family. Our executive leadership team and our Best-One partners remain committed to “Creating Raving Fans” and growing the Best-One influence in the retread, commercial, OTR, and consumer tire divisions.
The heart of Best-One could best be defined by Paul’s passion and love for people, along with creating opportunities for entrepreneurial success and growth. Corporately, we remain committed to honoring Paul’s core values, building strong relationships with our partners and suppliers, and creating new opportunities for those who join our Best-One family.
As the excitement for our brand continues to grow, we are fortunate to work alongside our Best-One partners each day, striving to Create Raving Fans out of every customer and team member our locations reach. Best-One remains committed to the legacy of love, learning, and entrepreneurial success that distinguishes our company from others in the industry. As we like to say, “Selling Tires…Serving People.”
For those who knew him well, Paul Zurcher will certainly be remembered for his personal list of Nine Lifetime Commitments:
- To seek God’s friendship, fellowship, and guidance
- To develop effective relationships
- To treat everyone with honor, love, dignity and respect
- To be self-disciplined and self-controlled
- To do right things right

- To live life now, and live life wide open
