In 1971, when Hank Feldman established Performance Plus Tire, he probably couldn’t have imagined where 35 years would take his business. Over the years, through expansion and contraction – as many as ten stores at one point – Feldman learned the ins and outs of automobile repair and maintenance, as well as modifications, custom wheels, and performance tires. Still, it hasn’t been all wine and roses, or is Feldman a beer and pizza guy?
All businesses boom and bust, but Feldman never let downturns get the best of him and his business. The 1992 Los Angeles riots were a particularly bad time, costing the business millions in property damage – “It was not a lot of fun,” says Feldman. Rebuilding and renewing his focus on a single store and expanding into the online space, Performance Plus Tire is better than it’s ever been, and getting better every day! Feldman keeps fans, online and on-site, up-to-date on the official YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter feeds.
