The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has a history that spans more than 80 years and includes several name changes. Originally known as the National Tire Dealers & Retreaders Association (NTDRA), the organization gave birth over the years to the American Retreaders Association (ARA) and the Tire Association of North America (TANA). ARA changed its name to the International Tire & Rubber Association (ITRA) and merged with TANA in 2002 to form the current Tire Industry Association (TIA), which now represents every interest in the tire industry.
TIA is a global association that represents 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, materials, or services to the industry.
