.tires is a proposed gTLD in ICANN's new gTLD program.

Current Applicants

  1. Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC
  2. Donuts (Dog Edge, LLC)
  3. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company [1]

GAC Early Warnings

The applications from Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC and The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company were issued GAC Early Warnings from the representative of Australia and GAC Chair, Heather Dryden. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.[2]

The warning states that the applicant is "seeking exclusive access to a common generic string .. that relates to a broad market sector," which Ms. Dryden notes could have unintended consequences and a negative impact on competition.[3]
