Ulster Tyres

Joe and Brighid have both spent their professional careers dedicated to the tyre trade. Their knowledge and hard work have seen the company grow substantially in the 40+ years the company has been trading. The original premises were located on the other side of the bridge in Ballybofey, then a few years later they relocated to Letterkenny Road – to their new custom built facility. Their location has not changed since.

New stores were added in the early eighties and a substantial extension was added in the mid nineties, a new head office was built with multiple fitting bays and large warehousing facilities standing on an impressive three quarters of an acre site. This brings the storage capacity to over 60,000 square feet. Ulster Tyres offers a substantial array of products to both trade and retail customers. It’s highly respected as a single source point of information within the industry and is now the longest established tyre wholesaler in Ireland. Online ordering is available to our trade customers. Ulster Tyres have been members of council on both the ITIA & SIMI.
