Don’t Tread On Me: Tire Store Offers So Much More
One would think with the name Tire Mania that tires would be the only thing offered. This could not be further from the truth, as Tire Mania, located on the corner of Adamo Dr. and U.S. Hwy. 301, is a full-service auto repair shop.
Don’t get me wrong, the store sells tires. . They sell all tire brands on the market.
But also available are A/C checks, tire rotations, brakes, exhaust, oil changes, transmissions, gaskets and much more.
In addition to the services available, amenities available while you wait for your car, truck or SUV include a comfortable customer waiting lounge, free Wi-Fi, nearby dining and shopping, early-bird drop-off, rental car services available, a shuttle service and free coffee.
Owner of Tire Mania, Julie Reavis, wants her customers to know that, “we are a locally owned small business that prides ourselves in honest, dependable work.”
It is interesting to note that Reavis didn’t always see herself as an automotive repair facility owner. Her educational background is in accounting and she started doing the books for the owner of the building which currently houses Tire Mania.
The 6,000-sq.-ft. clinic for cars has been open since June of 2008 and has seven employees, including Joe DeFilippo, service manager. Mechanics at Tire Mania are certified ASE Master Mechanics.
In addition to servicing personal vehicles, Tire Mania also does tune-ups on fleets for companies including DirectTv, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Consolidated Utility Services.
Tire Mania is a NAPA Auto Care Center and uses Castrol Oil. Tire Mania Auto Repair employees are also multilingual, with staff members fluent in English, Spanish and American Sign Language.
“Tire Mania prides itself in personalized service that you don’t receive from the large dealerships or corporate companies,” she said.
Reavis lives in Zephyrhills with her husband, Tim, and they have two boys.
Tire Mania is open Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and is located at 105 U.S. Hwy. 301 S., Ste. 103, in Tampa.
