Save 20% with Goodyear's Consumer Tire Sales Program

We invite you to use Goodyear's NEW Consumer Tire Sales Program designed for NICA Members, saving you 20% off of Tires and Installation. Carmel Dyer-Pittroff, CCE, Foundation Trustee, has been an early adopter on NICA’s Goodyear Tire Program and shared her experience with us. She said, “This is the easiest benefit ever! I called Tim Koenigsfeld with Goodyear and Tim organized my tire installation. It is becoming a lot easier with the new system, and I just got a text my tires are done. It was just as quick two weeks ago when I again had tires installed on my Food Stand. This is the fourth time I have used this benefit!”
