Bauer Built Tire Center in Eau Claire, WI

Since 1944, Bauer Built Tire has become one of the largest commercial tire dealers and retreaders in the United States. We carry a complete line of: passenger tires, light truck tires, commercial truck tires, custom and stock retreads, agricultural tires, industrial tires, off-the-road tires, and tubes; major brands and private labels. Bauer Built has also expanded its products and services to include bulk fuel distribution.

Bauer Built, Inc. was founded as an oil jobbership in Durand, Wisconsin in 1944 by G.F. "Sam" Bauer and Ray Bauer. The focus of the company, in its beginning, was to sell petroleum products to local service stations and farm accounts. However, very early on, the company got into retailing by opening its own gas stations. The growth over the years has been in the tire industry, initially selling tires from the gas stations and then getting into the wholesaling and commercial sales and service of tires.

In 1954, the company began manufacturing retreaded tires. By 1963, the company had grown to over $2M in sales. During this year, Sam acquired 100% ownership of the company and continued to expand the tire division. In the late 60's, Sam's family members started becoming involved in the business. By 1975, the company had grown to sales in excess of $10M and was operating tire centers in Eau Claire and Durand, Wisconsin, as well as a retread manufacturing facility, a wholesale distribution center, a bulk oil business, a NAPA Parts Store, and a Holiday Station convenience store all in Durand.
