Hey! We're brothers; Michael and Raffaele. We opened Ontario Tire together in February of 2002. Our first location was at 139 Cannon St., where we stayed for two years. After that, we moved our business to 970 Barton St. for four years and then to 1960 Barton St., where we have been ever since.
Our goal when opening our shop was to provide our customers with superior quality services for reasonable prices. Our top priority is, and always has been, taking care of our customers. Twenty years later, we pride ourselves on our commitment to delivering the highest level of service. We are reliable and honest and want our customers to feel like family because that's exactly what you are to us.
