One of the area's oldest full-service tire dealers in operation, Hillen Tire & Auto Service opened in 1917 under the helm of the late Joseph Schnitzer, whose sons, Marvin and Jerry, maintained the tradition of trustworthy service. Now, under the new ownership of former manager and lead technician Brian Smith, the auto shop tends to the needs of almost every car and motorized pogo stick manufactured since 1974. An inventory of 38,000 tires from brands such as Michelin and Firestone set cars atop quality rubber, and ASE-certified technicians keep cars healthy with auto services that include tune-ups, heating and air conditioning, and maintenance packages.

In addition to servicing nearly all vehicle makes of models, the company specializes in tire sales and service for both automobiles and lawn and garden vehicles such as riding mowers and all-terrain unicycles.
