Buying Local in Petaluma, CA Feels Good!
We joined the ATD (America's Tire Distributors) and Tire Rack family of elite independent tire dealers to serve you better! While we have similar identification and services as other Tire dealers across the country, we remain locally-owned and operated.
In fact, ATD and Tire Rack are among the largest network of elite tire wholesale dealers in the country! That’s why we affiliated with them. We get all the “big box” benefits, but we get to maintain our independence, and continue to give you the best customer service possible.
Local Heroes Auto has been a part of our Petaluma, CA community for many years. I and my team take pride in serving and giving you a simple, professional and hassle-free tire and automotive experience. We are one of the few, if any, local Tire suppliers who post our price for your Tires on the internet, on our website, so you don't have have to go through submitting your information through a quote process and wait to hear back from us. We also pass along all Manufacturer rebates as well as we are always running specials and discounts off our published Tire pricing.
Maintaining our local ties and independence is important to me and my team. And it’s also beneficial to you.
