Points are tabulated based on number of outlets. Each commercial- only outlet receives two points and each retread plant receives one point. The number of combination commercial/retail stores is multiplied by the estimated percentage of commercial sales and then multiplied by two. The highest 25 point totals make up the list, and then the dealers are ranked based on estimated commercial sales. Rank, company, headquarters, chief officer, website Commercial- only outlets/ commercial- retail outlets Truck tire brands Retread plants Service trucks Rank based on 2017 estimated commercial sales (in millions) Points based on number of outlets 1 Les Schwab's store total does not include 63 member-affiliated dealers.
