Tire Shop Category

I'm setting up a Google Business Page for a Car Tire Store.

When I find businesses on local map pack they have the "Tire Shop" Category that I can't find when selecting categories.

Does "Tire Shop" still exist? If not, which categories fit best for a Tire Store?

Thanks

Yeah the list for cats in Canada is categories_en_CA.csv and it contains just "Tyre Shop" but the Canadian encoding for "Tyre Shop" is the same as for the US encoding "Tire Shop" 

both are ecoded by "gcid:tire_shop"

 

so it doesn't matter what you are specifying.

Users will find it either using for a "Tyre Shop" or for a "Tire Shop"

"tire shop" is a listed category in here (https://developers.google.com/my-business/categories/categories_en_US.csv) for the USA.
In waht other country is your buisness located and you can't find it?

Hi Helmut,
The business is in Canada and featured categories such as, "Tyre Shop" and "Wheel Shop".
But when I went into Google Maps and made a suggestion, I was able to suggest "Tire Shop"
