In 1974, a tornado swept across Xenia, OH. Many of the town's structures were damaged or destroyed, including more than half of the building that housed Detroit Tire. That didn't keep the auto center's employees off the job, however. The very next day, they reopened the damaged store in order to service the support and emergency vehicles coming in to clean up the city. Many of these repairs were performed for free.
This is still the kind of dedication customers can expect at Detroit Tire, which has been in business for more than 65 years. Technicians there fit 15 different brands of tires on a wide variety of vehicles, from cars to farm tractors to motorcycles. They also skillfully perform tune-ups, wheel alignments, oil changes, and other services.
In 1987, the Dayton Daily News briefly outlined the life of Charles L. Marshall, the then 86-year-old president and owner of Grismer Tire. Though the article appeared a quarter of a century ago, it still captured 55 years worth of history at Grismer, from its purchase during “the dark days” of the Great Depression—thanks to Marshall’s winning personality and a banker’s $13,000 loan—to its transformation into one of the most successful auto centers in Ohio.
Today, at each of its 22 locations scattered across Southern Ohio, ASE-certified technicians continue to dispense the top-notch service that made the garage famous. They drain and replenish oil, align wheels, and fix busted transmissions and cooling systems. Equipped with nine brands of tires, including Michelin, Bridgestone, and BF Goodrich, the team outfits rides of all makes and models with brand-new rollers, allowing them to zip down highways or blend in at parades with ease.
