About Tom Steele Tire

Creating a successful company doesn’t happen over night. It is built on years of experience in an industry, dedication and passion.

For Tom Steele, 74, founder of Tom Steele Tire Service Inc. (TSTS), his interest in automobiles started as a teenager when he worked for the Phelps-Dodge. He was then hired at Firestone Tire on Jefferson Boulevard where the majority of his knowledge of the tire and car care industry was founded. He eventually bought the downtown Firestone Tire store and in 1978, Steele opened his own store on the corner of Rudisill Boulevard and Clinton Street. TSTS moved to its current location on North Clinton Street in 1983 and opened a second store on Illinois Road in 2004

  • I went in for an oil change, and they were honest enough to tell me it wasn't time for me to get one. They could have easily done one and took my money, but they didn't. I will definitely go back when it is time.

    Tj and his crew are great. I felt like a priority because of their fast repair. Lots of places had said they were 1-2 weeks out unless it was an oil change. They've also got some of the lowest prices after checking prices with other local shops and dealership service centers. I will continue to take my vehicles here. Thank you.

    I had tire light come on as I was just leaving town to drive to Chicago. Tom Steele Tire took a quick look and found a nail in a front tire. They quickly patched the tire and reset the tire sensors and I was on my way to Chicago. Thank you.

    I had purchased tires here in past and was happy with experience, but never had regular auto service until this week. Very pleased overall -- location is convenient, the mechanic was friendly and explained what was needed, and work was finished when promised. Best of all, cost was reasonable. Will definitely return for future service.

    I have trusted Tom Steele with my tires, oil changes and other car repairs over the years. They have always treated me fairly and I don't feel like they take advantage of me when I have no clue what I am talking about like other places have made me feel in the past. I appreciate their honesty and straightforwardness. Plus they are always quick to get the job done.

  • My car was detailed here and it's so amazingly clean! CDs laying around were organized and all trash was taken out and mats are spotless. Love it!
