The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is an international association representing all segments of
the tire industry, including those that manufacture, repair, recycle,
sell, service or use new or retreaded tires, and also those suppliers
or individuals who furnish equipment, material or services to the
industry. TIA was formed by the July 2002 merger of the International
Tire & Rubber Association (ITRA) and the Tire Association of
North America (TANA). The association's main office is in Bowie,
Maryland, and has over 6,000 current members.
