Burlington Kelly Tires
The Auto Station is thrilled to represent the oldest tire brand in North American. Kelly brand tires were established in 1894 and today is celebrating 125 years of providing motorists the best deal on tires on the road.
Horse and Buggy Beginnings
Yep, that's where it started in Springfield Ohio in 1894. Kelly Tires began production of solid-rubber carriage and buggy wheels. Not to mention their pioneering efforts with black and blue rubber baby buggy bumpers. The phrase almost became the company slogan had it not been too difficult to enunciate with a mouth full of crackers. In any case, the expression has proved to be as durable as the Kelly Tire Company. From humble beginnings, Kelly Tire has become the oldest tire brand in North America. The Auto Station is proud Kelly Tire dealer and continues in Kelly's 125 years of offering a "Good Deal on a Great Tire" right here in Burlington.
Good Deal on a Great Tire for the President of the United States
It's always nice to see the products we represent used on any prestige application. The official carriage of the President has been equipped with none other than Kelly Tires since President William Howard Taft. It's always a sight to see a classic carriage such as "Horse and Buggy One" - but those tires stand as an example of the great Kelly Tire history.
Goodyear likes Good Deals on Great Tires too
It didn't take long before the larger and most successful tire companies recognized the value that Kelly offers. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company liked the tires Kelly made so much - they bought the company in 1935. Kelly has been operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the largest tire company in the world since.
A Good move for a Great Tire
Beginning in 2010, Kelly made the exciting jump to North American wide sales distribution. The Auto Station is now pleased to help bring the Kelly Good Deal on a Great Tire right here to Burlington.
