Finding the right partner is critical in business and in sports. Great partnerships make great teams and great teams can do great things for their customers and their communities.

Cleveland’s own professional football running back, Nick Chubb, and Van’s Tire Pros have formed one of those partnerships.

And it benefits everyone, especially Van’s customers.

Chubb has teamed up with the local Van’s Tire Pros again this year for “Nick Chubb Mondays.” Here’s how it works: Each Monday, after Chubb’s Sunday game, Van’s customers receive an instant discount in the dollar amount equal to the number of rushing yards Chubb gained in the game. You can use the discount for a set of four select brand tires along with premium installation during that same week.

And considering Nick Chubb is one of the best running backs in all of football, the savings can be substantial.

“The discount is offered on Chubb’s performance personally, whether the team wins or loses,” explains Van’s Tire Pros owner, Joshua Baughman. “And I think we all know that Nick Chubb’s performance—just like Van’s Tire Pros’—is guaranteed dependable, professional and beneficial to his team, just as we are to our customers. He’s a humble, head-down, get-the-job-done kind of guy, and having him as our partner made perfect sense for us.”

Common Values
When thinking about partnering with a local sports professional, Van’s Tire Pro’s wanted someone who represents the company’s values.

“Nick was the only player we were interested in,” says Van’s sales and marketing director, Rebecca True. “Everything about him represents us as a company. He’s a humble, hardworking team player who takes his job very seriously, and we think he had a lot of fun shooting our commercials.”

Running back Nick Chubb films a commercial about Van’s Tire Pros’ “Nick Chubb Mondays” promotion with Van’s owner Joshua Baughman (center) and general manger Zack McMurray. The campaign’s tagline, “You gotta choose the right shoes,” reflects how the right tires on your vehicle are similar to the right shoes for playing football. All three in this photo are wearing the wrong shoes.

Van’s Tire Pros has been a family-owned and operated business for more than 30 years, so the family knows the meaning of longevity, loyalty and dependability, and there may be nothing more we depend on day to day than our automobiles. And automobiles depend on tires for traction to grip the road in every kind of weather, and stability to control the vehicle and absorb shock for a smooth ride.

“I started working in this business in 1991 when I was in high school,” Joshua explains. “I pushed a mail cart in the corporate office of an auto supply company, then worked for a tire wholesaler. From there I purchased an existing Van’s location in Wadsworth in 2013, and have since opened 12 more. We wanted a partner who represents our drive, dedication to our customers and our work ethic. That partner is Nick Chubb.”

Join the Fun
The “Nick Chubb Mondays” promotion is valid at all Van’s locations every Monday after Sunday’s game. Just watch the game or call your local Van’s Tire Pros to find out how much you can save. Nick Chubb will do the rest.

“This is an opportunity for people to save a lot of money,” Rebecca says. “There’s a lot of excitement around here when we know we’re doing something extra special for our customers. And it’s a lot of fun for everyone.”
