Jim Lewis Tire and Wheel, Inc. is one man's dream that became reality in September, 1982. Jim Lewis got his start in the tire business in 1953, working for Mid-West Auto Store as an assistant manager. After a short period of time, he was promoted to store manager. In 1976, he moved on to MFA Tire and Auto Center to become the store manager and supervisor over 11 area stores. In September 1982, Jim Lewis purchased the MFA Tire and Auto Center located at 505 W. Dunklin in Jefferson City, Missouri. In July 1988, he moved the business to its current location at 1300 Missouri Blvd. Our philosophy of business is the same today as when Jim started. "We just treat them (our customers) like we would want to be treated," said Jim Lewis. "The greatest service we provide is hand tightening the lug nuts and we use a torque wrench to finish the job to manufacturer's specifications. This special service eliminates stripping the lug nuts, wheels coming loose, prevents brake rotor warping and allows the consumer to remove the tire easily themselves." Jim retired in 1997 and sold the business to his oldest daughter Sharlyn and her husband Phil LePage. Jim Lewis passed away August 5, 2005, but will always live on in our hearts and memories. Sharlyn has been with the company from the beginning. Phil has been with Jim Lewis Tire and Wheel, Inc. since May, 1983. Most recently, Phil and Sharlyn's son, Brandon has taken Phil's place in the company and Eric Kinter is managing the store.
