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.
For more than 30 years, Precision has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics whet engine appetites with an oil change (up to five quarts) and then rotate tires to allow for an even distribution of wear and tear. A windshield-wiper replacement for blades 16 to 24 inches ensures a close shave so autos look their springtime best, and battery and charging-system checks safeguard against ignition failure during dramatic drive-thru getaways. Ride renovations end with a brake inspection to assure working parts post-drive-away.
