Local Entrepreneur Bringing Leading Auto Retailer to Windy City for the First Time 

John Abraham, the franchisee responsible for this latest deal, has called Chicago home for over 40 years. During which time, he’s built a successful career within the healthcare industry.


Abraham credits a lifelong entrepreneurial passion and enthusiasm for the automotive sector as the driving forces behind his decision to invest in this next stage of his professional career. An investment he trusts will do a great deal of good for his fellow Chicagoans, giving them access to safe, quality tires and wheels from top manufacturers, with payment flexibility suited to fit any lifestyle or budget.


Founded in 2000 by rent-to-own veteran Larry Sutton, RNR has carved out a unique niche in the tire and wheel industry with its convenient, flexible payment options that fit each customer’s budget. RNR offers and professionally installs high-quality tires and custom wheels to a growing market of underserved consumers and has established a business model that allows customers to choose the payment option that best suits their needs, whether that’s weekly, biweekly, or monthly payments.


“You might think car manufacturers would have the safest, most performance-ready tires on any new vehicle coming out of the warehouse, but for a variety of reasons, that’s rarely the case,” said Abraham. “That’s what makes RNR Tire Express stand out so much as a concept. It affords anyone the opportunity to equip their vehicle with the latest and greatest in tire capabilities. Helping families and individuals to prioritize their own safety and style.”


The first location is anticipated to arrive in Melrose Park this fall, with the second and third expected in Waukegan and Aurora, respectively. Site selection is still underway for the remaining three franchise locations.


“Our brands’ entrance into Chicago has been a long time coming,” said Sutton, founder and CEO of RNR Tire Express. “The agreement is a perfect representation of the commitment our team has to serving as many communities and families across the country as possible. Something you can expect to see a lot more of from the RNR brand in the year ahead.”
