WTC Member News
The SEMA Wheel and Tire Council (WTC) remains committed to providing its members with a forum to address industry-related issues by offering year-round networking and educational opportunities.
SEMA Councils and Networks have two upcoming open membership meetings that are ideal for helping industry leaders connect and learn about new opportunities.
Independent retail stores gain online visibility on par with the big brands with the help of Tirescanner.
The Wheel & Tire Council (WTC) has long been a clearinghouse for information on trends, technology, product development and legislative and regulatory issues that affect the market segment it represents. For instance, to assist in the development of new products, the council created the WTC Wheel Measurement Database, which contains wheel measurement information on new vehicles accessible through measuring sessions held periodically at the SEMA Garage.
In the 22 years since SEMA’s Wheel Industry Council burst on the scene, the group—now known as the Wheel & Tire Council (WTC)—has stayed true to its core mission: namely to identify industry challenges, deliver educational solutions, and provide networking opportunities.
Twenty-one years ago, a collection of SEMA-member companies representing various facets of the custom wheel industry banded together to form the Wheel Industry Council (WIC). At the time, WIC was described as a forum in which wheel and tire professionals could network, identify and work on resolving areas of mutual concern, and form mutually beneficial alliances.
As part of its mission to help its members’ businesses grow and thrive, the Wheel & Tire Council (WTC) centers its efforts on delivering meaningful benefits and opportunities during the SEMA Show. Whether it’s through educational offerings, networking venues or recognition of industry leaders during an awards ceremony, WTC invites all members and nonmembers interested in learning more about WTC to take advantage of its can’t-miss opportunities during Show week.
Over the years, the Wheel & Tire Council (WTC, formerly known as the Wheel Industry Council, WIC) has not only brought together two related industry segments for the common good but has also centered its sights on the collective technical and educational needs of its members.
Much like SEMA’s mission to help members’ businesses grow and prosper by providing a range of resources, SEMA councils and networks also offer deliverables to their members. For the Wheel & Tire Council, that means providing a forum for member companies to work together to identify and address industry-related issues and explore opportunities in the aftermarket wheel industry.
