I believe there was a serious illness with the founder and the business was shut down. 'Don't know the whole story.

I have seen similar, but different brand tires at the CanAm dealer in Kerrville - Destination Cycle. Give them a call if you wish. up

The founder passed, his wife and son decided not to continue the business. I drive by it all the time.

After Dan passed I don’t know why they didn’t sell the business. There were plenty of people that would have bought it, Including me. It was an excellent company, he was the dreamer/inventor and she was the business head, she was also much younger and had a great rack! It was a great business plan. I miss doing business with them.

I have used Essex for years - Dan was always very helpful and knew his stuff - I heard they shut down awhile back - it is a shame because they were great tires

I am sorry to hear they have closed
I did business with them for 15 years more or less. Great company to do business with.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.
