Company History

With 16 years of experience in the tire industry, Johnny dreamed of owning his own business so he chose to open the business that he knows best…TIRES!   Johnny & Denise Nelson started Johnny R Nelson Tire, Inc. on April 24, 2004.

Denise sat in front of the shop with a pad of paper and pencil, and wrote down all the name and phone numbers on the side of commercial vehicles.  Then she made up flyers with location, hours and services that the business has to offer.  After calling the numbers to get there fax number she faxed the flyers with credit applications.

We then started in the farm, agriculture, OTR, and passenger.  As the business grew we hired their son Jason Nelson, so we are truly family owned and operated, and we take pride in our customer service.

Please accept our appreciation and sincere thanks for letting us serve you.  Your patronage is never taken for granted. Our aim is to please and satisfy you!
