After the untimely passing of Flip's Wesco Tire & Wheel Auto Center's founder Philip “Flip” Smith in 2008, Flip's son Shawn and daughter Kristin decided to use their lifelong industry experience and keep their father's legacy alive. To this day, customers stop by the center for vehicle supplies that range from automotive services to new tires—each of which comes with complimentary 5,000-mile rotations, wheel balancing, and flat repairs. During all services and installations, the experienced technicians administer a complete inspection designed to uncover operational and safety issues, such as leaky undercarriages and missing windshields. While clients wait for their rides to be fully refined, they can surf the web with the center's free WiFi.
