40+ years of knowledge is hard to beat

Born and raised in Vancouver, Rick has been in the automotive, tires and brake industry for over 40 years.

He learned all about tires and vehicle suspension starting at Goodyear Tires. At the young age of 14 he rode his bicycle into Hazel Dell after school almost every day and worked til they kicked him out to go home for sleep.

In the 90’s, he worked as a tech at Les Schwab, back when Les was still alive. The company ran like a well-oiled machine, and you were valued for being honest with the customers, NEVER over selling them services they did not need. Customer service was of utmost importance.

Once we found the right location to serve clients and raise our family, we opened the doors in 2019. Rick is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and friendly. And to this day, he puts customer service and education first. We use only parts and recommend service that we do on our own vehicles. What more could you ask for to trust what stops your vehicle?! OH yeah, how about a 2-year 24k mile warranty!! We have that, too, on all our services and parts
for no extra cost to you.

We can't wait to serve you soon.
