Business Spotlight: C&R Tire


CAVE CREEK –  Founded in 1996, C&R Tire was started by Ralph Holmstrom Jr. and has been family owned and operated since it was founded.  Chris and Ralph Holmstrom III, now run the tire shop keeping the family tradition of quality and local trustworthy service alive for over two decades.

C & R Tire has five North Valley shops that offer complete tire and auto repair services, and its goal is “to always have you leave our stores with a peace of mind that your car repair was done right, and what was done was needed.”

That is why the company and its owners only choose the highest quality managers who have been with the company long-term to run their shops, ensuring the quality in service remains true to the C & R name.  The new manager located at the Cave Creek Road location, Rick, has worked for the company since 2005, and Jamie, who manages the Tatum Road location has been in the automotive industry since 2005.

Technicians are ASE certified and receive ongoing training to ensure top-quality care for your vehicles.   Here are some of the services C & R offers: tire repairs and rotations, wheel balancing, alignments, brake repairs, coolant system repairs, air conditioning repairs, oil changes, fluid flushes and differential services.  The company also offers an annual membership program so customers can earn extra savings all year.

Tire selection can be viewed online and the shop offers name brands such as Pirelli, Bridgestone and Firestone. The company guarantees the lowest out-the-door retail tire price in the Valley and offers a two-year/24,000 mile in-house warranty on its parts and labor for automotive repair, and a nationwide 12-month/12,000 mile warranty.
