. Passenger car tires and automotive batteries will be added to Amazon.com in early 2018.

"DieHard is America's most trusted and preferred  automotive battery brand and the collaboration with Amazon makes it easier for millions to shop the brand," said Tom Park, President of Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands at Sears Holdings. "As we have previously stated, we want to diversify the revenue streams of our iconic brands and launching on Amazon.com will significantly expand the distribution and availability of the DieHard brand in the U.S., building on the success of our recent Kenmore appliances launch on Amazon.com."

DieHard products now available on Amazon.com:

Jump starters and vehicle battery chargers and maintainers - A range of battery-related accessories are now available to help jump start and charge batteries.

  • Jump starters: An assortment of portable power products meet the performance needs of batteries. These include the DieHard compact lithium jump starter + phone charger, which can top off a phone's charge and even jump start a 6-cylinder engine.
  • Vehicle battery chargers and maintainers: A selection of compact shelf chargers and high-powered wheel chargers are available. These include the Wi-Fi enabled DieHard smart charger and maintainer, which allow users to check and charge their battery from a smart device, providing convenience and peace of mind.

DieHard products coming soon to Amazon.com:

Automotive batteries and tires

  • DieHard Advanced Gold Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries – The non-spillable batteries are designed to provide greater maintenance-free reliability and performance during severe weather such as snow, extreme cold, sleet, rain and heat. The battery also is specifically designed to power today's vehicles, which draw more energy for start/stop ignitions and accessories, such as onboard DVD, navigation systems, and back-up cameras.
  • Passenger tires - Finally, a tire that lives up to its name. DieHard Silver Touring All-Season tires are engineered with rugged quality and innovation, inside and out. Key features include:
    • Nylon Belt Edge Layers, which increase steering response and cornering.
    • Tension Control Technology, which optimizes ground contact and distributes pressure for better braking and less wear.
    • Cross-Angle Sipes, which create biting edges for better traction in wet/wintry conditions.
    • Tire Profile Optimization, which enhances performance by uniformly expanding the center and shoulder region of the contact area.
    • Advanced Carbon Tread Compound, which promotes long, healthy tire life.
    • 70,000-Mile Limited Warranty, which provides lasting customer satisfaction.

DieHard has demonstrated its power as a brand in the past two years with the successful launch of the DieHard Silver Touring A/S passenger car tires. A national survey among automotive tire purchasers in late 2015 ranked DieHard among the top five leading tire brands, even though DieHard tires did not exist at the time. Within six months of launching in August 2016 at Sears Auto Centers, DieHard tires became one of the leading passenger tire brands at Sears.

Other recent innovations from the DieHard brand include:

  • Launch of the industry leading Wi-Fi smart battery maintainer that remotely provides vehicle battery health on a smart phone or tablet, giving users peace of mind.
  • Launch of a compact lithium jump starter + smart phone charger. It is compact, yet powerful enough to jump start up to 20 vehicles on a single charge.
  • The opening of three DieHard Auto Centers in San Antonio, Texas; Troy, Mich. and Roseville, Mich. They offer state-of-the-art technology and services in a contemporary, comfortable setting – that, combined with service from our experienced associates, can help today's drivers make the right choices for their vehicle's needs.

About the DieHard Brand
Introduced in 1967, Sears designed the original DieHard automotive battery to produce 35 percent more usable starting power than other similar batteries. Featuring a revolutionary tough, thin-walled case of translucent polypropylene plastic, which was 50 percent thinner than conventional black rubber-type battery enclosures, the design's extra room meant bigger plates, more acid and extra starting power. During testing, not a single failure was reported in over 26,000 starts in temperatures ranging from sub-zero to more than 100 degrees, hence the name "DieHard."

      Representing “the next wave of DieHard brand innovation,” the hand tools are “made to deliver reliability and confidence that’s ideal for all DIYers, including the new, younger generation of auto enthusiasts,” Advance said in a news release.  
      “We saw an opportunity to speak to the evolving, modern DIYer who’s looking to not only explore and build their DIY skills, but also their DIY confidence,” said Jason McDonell, executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and eCommerce at Advance. “That’s why DieHard hand tools are built with innovation in mind, along with the reliability and durability DieHard is known for.”
      A new, younger generation of auto enthusiasts with different levels of DIY confidence, ambitions and passions has emerged alongside an increase in vehicle demand and retention. In fact, the auto care category is expected to grow by 4.7% between now and 2027. The DieHard hand tools were specifically made to deliver the reliability and confidence these new, modern DIYers need, Advance noted.
      “This generation builds their toolbox over time, on a project-by-project basis that creates memory after memory,” said McDonell. “We wanted to develop tools that power their full potential – from the screwdriver that helped replace a taillight to learning why a ratchet is every auto DIYers best friend.”
      Hitting shelves and online just in time for Father’s Day, new DieHard hand tools are lab-tested to exceed all industry testing standards for strength and durability, with all hand tools coming with a lifetime warranty. DieHard tools were designed with new features, including an anti-slip design on all combination wrenches; ergonomic handles on all drivers; and professional-quality, 90-tooth sealed head ratchets that will last a lifetime, according to the company.
      Since acquiring the DieHard brand in 2019, Advance Auto Parts has continued to position the brand as driving the next generation of car care. Advance has brought the 50-year legacy of DieHard batteries to a new category – tools – and recently entered the electric-vehicle conversation with the launch of the first-to-market 12-volt battery designed specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles, DieHard EV.
      Advance Auto Parts also began rolling out DieHard power tools, jacks and lifts online and in store late last year. In honor of Father’s Day, shoppers can take $20 off the

To further celebrate the confidence new DieHard hand tools empower, this Father’s Day, Advance identified and surprised two modern DIY dads during their first foray into DIY with their own personal hype man, Jake Fehling – the “DieHard Hype Man in a Van.” With the help of Advance, Fehling charged into each DIY moment in a DieHard-branded van to encourage those selected and power future projects with a lifetime supply of DieHard hand tools.
      The retailer’s “DieHard Hype Man in a Van” also visited a local Advance Auto Parts in Charlotte, North Carolina, to surprise and delight dads “in the wild” with their own new set of DieHard hand tools.

      BCA’s March 2022 release includes wheel hub assemblies and repair kits for a number of import and domestic applications, and represents premium coverage for more than 6.9 million vehicles in operation.

      Mevotech recently announced the expansion of its Supreme product line to include wheel-hub assemblies.
      According to the company, features include:
      Roll form lockdown design – to ensure bearing preload for reduced vibration Premium seals – with a three-point or four-point seal design Reinforced ABS sensor – enhanced wiring harness with integrated strain reliefs Premium lithium synthetic grease – resistant to wear, high temperature and extreme pressure Increased flange thickness – with 20% more material to reduce flex while the hub is turning Maximized contact angle – for improved resistance to radial loads Optimized axial play – to ensure negative clearance fully loaded, reducing vibration Premium materials – featuring high-precision rolling elements encapsulated in a fiber reinforced cage Plus, there’s no wasting bay time and money sourcing the right mounting hardware or looking up torque specs. Supreme hubs come with “labor-saver” additions to make the professional technician’s job faster and easier, so all mounting hardware and precise torque specs are included in the box for a complete install, according to Mevotech.
      “As part of the Supreme Hubs launch, we are introducing 27 new upgraded SKUs for the most popular applications. They feature engineered enhancements based on key failure points to prevent costly comebacks and keep vehicles performing strongly,” said Richard Stothers, vice president engineering & research.
      Designed with application-specific upgrades, Mevotech Supreme parts are engineered to provide increased strength, durability and service life for high-usage passenger cars, CUVs, SUVs and fleet vehicles. Joining Supreme ball joints, control arms, tie-rod ends and stabilizer links, this fifth core product offering means the professional technician now can choose engineered steering, suspension and wheel-end replacement components for a complete repair solution, the company noted.
