Tire Guides, Inc. was founded by Bennett Garfield in 1950. Bennett Garfield, a young entrepreneur working in tire sales, recognized the industry’s need for more detailed tire information.

Seeing then how the industry welcomed this 'collection' of tire information, Bennett pressed on and in 1957 he debuted his company’s namesake publication the Tire Guide. Now for the first time tire dealers had an accurate up-to-date collection of motor vehicle fitment information covering a 10 year period which included tire sizes, optional tire sizes and inflation and rim specifications for both domestic and foreign vehicles.
