Atlanta slam dunk legend surprises unsuspecting auto service customers

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – Earlier this week, former Atlanta Hawks player and 1986 slam dunk contest winner Spud Webb served as a celebrity driver for Tire Discounters’ Skips the Shop program which recovers the customer’s car, services it and returns the vehicle to their home or work.

Webb spent the morning surprising customers of Chamblee-area Tire Discounters to showcase the company’s unique brand and show off his fun, light-hearted spirit, according to a press release.

Tire Discounters recently opened new stores in the Atlanta metro area and handed out more than 250 free apple pies to passers-by in March to salute the community. Tire Discounters also intends to create more than 200 jobs in the region in 2022.

Tire Discounters is the nation’s largest 100% family-owned tire and service provider. The company recently signed an agreement for a 72,000 square foot warehouse, distribution and training center conveniently located near the airport, which will be operational in the fall. It’s on the heels of the opening of the Chamblee store (located at 5585 Peachtree Blvd).

Tire Discounters currently has 120 employees in 12 stores across the state of Georgia. The company aims to create an additional 300 jobs in 2022. Of that number, about 200 employees are expected to work in the Atlanta metro area.
