Our Story


In 1978, with a vision and a dream of running a family business that could be trusted, Tom Steele opened Tom Steele Tires on the corner of North Clinton and Spy Run. Starting with a two bay garage, servicing tires and the basics under the hood, quickly turned into an eight bay garage with a shop that offers more than you would think. In the early 2000’s after completing college, both of Tom’s sons joined him in business bringing the family business to the full effect.

Under the direction of his son TJ, the original North Clinton location offers not only tires, but everything under the hood, as well as van rentals, and car sales. His other son, Sam, then furthered the business by opening another location off of Jefferson in 2019. Making two convenient locations for all your automotive needs. Both locations operate other the principles Tom Steele first set in place, a full scale automotive shop determined to offer competitive pricing, as well as be the type of family business you can trust.


Tom Steele opened the business with tires in mind, which is why Tom Steele Tires is one of the most competitive in the Fort Wayne Market. While their pricing is competitive, the most impressive thing about their tires is their turn around time. Tom Steele Tires carries every brand of tire on the market with a large warehouse full at all times, and if for some reason they don’t have one in stock, they can have any tire in their store within half a day. This means less time waiting for your tires to arrive, and more time on the road.


Now while tires may have been where the family started, they didn’t just stop there. Both locations offer full automotive services, while maintaining competitive pricing and honest work. Their shop team of eight employees have been trained to maintain the same integrity and work ethic that Tom Steele offered himself.  But again they didn’t just stop there, Tom Steele Tires also offers van rentals and car sales, meaning two convenient locations offering everything automotive you could ever need.
