Started in February of 1977 by Jess Rodriguez, the "J" in J's Tire stands for the Rodriguez family
members  (Jess, Juanita, Jay, John, Joe, Jackie, and Jeff) of whom all worked at J's on the store's
grand opening.  Below is a brief timeline of events covering the history of J's Tire:

Rooted in our familial beginning, J's Tire has grown to serve the automotive needs of much of the
tri-county area (LaSalle, Livingston, and Marshall counties).  More than just tires, J's Tire has
developed into a full-service automotive repair shop as well.  From preventative maintenance
such as oil changes and tune ups to more detailed maintenance such as brakes, shocks, struts,
and front end alignments, we are able to service your vehicle in a number of ways.  Please see
