In 1968, Jim started in business by opening an APCO full-service filling station and hired his younger brother Dave, to help out. Soon after opening, Dave moved on and Jim hired Brian, a friend of the family, to take Dave's place. Jim's venture in doing basic car
maintenance and selling Goodyear tires grew quickly. This growth initiated the construction of Jim's Tire & Auto Service, Inc., a Goodyear concept store, just north of Harry, on Rock Road.
Throughout the years, Jim's Tire and Auto has become a family owned and operated business. Four of Jim's sons help out in running the family business to this day. And yes, Jim still pops in from time to time.
With the help of good employees and great customers, Jim's Tire & Auto has grown from selling tires and doing complete car repair, to Wichita's premier lawn and garden equipment servicing dealer as well. Selling and servicing top rated brands like Toro, Husqvarna, Echo, MoJack, Troy-Bilt, Lawnboy, and STIHL has enabled Jim's Tire & Auto to become a force to be reckoned with! Jim's has expanded their product offering and has become your Pellet grill
headquarters. Representing brands like Green Mountain Grills, and American built Cookshack. Jim's still believes in good old fashioned customer service, where you come to know your customers by first name. Unlike those fly by night internet businesses Jim's is here to take care of their customers before and after every sale. Jim's is not perfect, but with each day they are trying to be just a little bit better.
So, if your car is in need of some repair, or you're just in the market for some new lawn equipment, or a new pellet grill, Jim's Tire & Auto has you covered. Thank you for supporting your local hometown independent dealer.
