In 2019, I had no idea where to start. I had a Shopify site and about 15,000 tires in stock in a warehouse in Las Vegas, but nothing else. I soon realized that finding the right supplier was more important than choosing which brands to carry. I also needed to connect with warehouses in multiple locations in the US, as this would reduce my shipping costs significantly.

When considering a supplier, here are the things you should look out for:

  1. Do they have multiple locations? The more warehouses, the better, as it allows for better coverage with one integration.
  2. Can they automate the ordering process? Can you send orders via an API? This will simplify your ordering process and allow your site to place orders automatically after verifying that there is a profit to be made. (If you need a developer, please contact me and I can refer you to my contact.)
  3. Do they hold a decent inventory? We don't want to connect to warehouses with only 100 tires in stock. A good-sized warehouse should have at least 3,000 tires, with at least 2,000 being the minimum for it to be worth your time to integrate.
  4. Do they offer competitive pricing? If their prices are too high, you won't make any money. However, keep in mind that online, you can find a customer for anything as long as you position your brand correctly.
  5. Do they offer good shipping rates? Shipping is extremely important, especially when starting out. I struggled with this when I was just starting out. I could get a tire $20-$30 cheaper than other online sellers, but the shipping was $40-$50 per tire, which hurt my chances of making a sale. Try to get flat rate shipping if possible, or negotiate a discounted shipping rate with FedEx. Just note that they will most likely only allow you to use these discounts for tires from their own warehouse. They won't share their FedEx account number.

By following these steps, you can find the best tire brands and suppliers for your dropshipping business.
