EZ Spare Wheel LLC, based in Atlanta, Georgia, is the exclusive distributor for the EZ Spare universal wheel line of products in the US> Our unique line of various types of universal wheels serves many segments of the automotive services industry.
EZ Spare Wheel founders Tom Morris and Ginny Nye have been in the wheel repair & distribution industry since 2000 when Tom founded Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists and it grew into a $100 million/annually global franchise business. AWRS was sold to private equity in late 2015 and the two set out on a mission to find their next automotive global enterprise where the products were needed and would make a difference. With their vast experience in the wheel re-manufacturing & distribution business, the need for universal wheels quickly emerged on their radar. The auto body industry needed wheels to move vehicles around a shop and consumers needed spares as many OEM’s discountinued equipping many models with spare wheels/tires.
Since launching the EZ Spare line of products in 2020, EZ started marketing to Roadside Assistance Operators and selling direct fit spare wheels of many makes and models to retail consumers, dealerships, tire stores and roadside assistance operators. Prior to the 2020 launch, the universal spare was primarily used by European roadside assistance providers when their customers experienced a flat-tire no spare emergency event.
The Company launched the Jack Wheel in late 2020, a very unique thermo-plastic universal wheel primarily used by collision shops to move vehicles through the repair process when their wheels have been removed. The receptivity of our thermo-plastic product has led us to more new innovative solutions the industry has not yet experienced.
