U.S. Rep. Heather Wilson (R-N.M.) got a crash course in the tire business-complete with a tire-changing lesson (above)-when she visited Paul Martinez, a Big O Tires Inc. franchisee in Albuquerque, N.M., on Oct. 3. Mr. Martinez discussed the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act, small business health plans, the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act and the Veterans Self-Employment Act with Rep. Wilson, according to a statement from Big O. ``My wife, staff and I were all delighted that Rep. Wilson would take time from her busy schedule to visit our store and to discuss the issues that affect us as a small business and as a franchise,'' Mr. Martinez said, according to the statement.
