Tires To Depend On
Browns Automotive carries a selection of Cooper tires for customers in Smithfield, VA, Carrollton, VA, Newport News, VA, and surrounding areas. We are committed to locating the right set of tires to match the individual driving needs of every customer.
Cooper Tire was started in 1914 in Akron, Ohio by two brothers-in-law, John F. Schaefer and Claude E. Hart. The in-laws began by founding a business called the M&M Manufacturing Company, which was focused on supplying tire patches, tire repair kits, and tire cement. The men purchased the Giant Tire & Rubber Company, a tire rebuilding business, the following year and moved it to Findlay, Ohio.
The Cooper name came into play in 1919 when auto parts dealer I.J. Cooper founded The Cooper Corporation, a new tire manufacturing business, also in Findlay, Ohio. In 1930, the two companies and the Falls Rubber Company merged, forming The Master Tire & Rubber Company, which became known as the Cooper Tire & Rubber Company in 1946.
