Dan Shirtliff and his wife Joanne moved to the Huntsville area from Toronto in the last 70s. Their plan was to stay a year and return to the south and now that year has stretched into several decades. Dan started off repairing anything that people would bring to him from cars, forklifts, transport trucks and trailers. This diverse customer base allowed him to grow the business quickly. When the opportunity came along for Dan to purchase a 6,000 sq ft shop he jumped at it and Tirecraft Huntsville and Auto was started. The location has never changed from 172 Main St West but at the time the business also had fuel pumps out front which attracted even more new customers. In 2007 the gas pumps were removed which allowed more parking.
Tirecraft Huntsville and Auto has always kept pace with the times as radiator and gas tank repairs were less in demand the business refocused on other areas such as vehicle undercoating. Today they have the latest technology in Hunter Road Force Balance and Hunter Laser Alignment systems. Tire storage of customer’s winter wheel and rim packages has become a growing part of the business in the last 10 years.
Brian Zubatiuk has been with Tirecraft Huntsville and Auto for numerous years. Both he and Dan have a passion for racing. Dan raced in the CASCAR Super Series and in 1996 Dan won the Eastern Series Championship and the National Series Championship. Brian was Dan’s lead mechanic and this passion for excellence and performance that racing demands are the founding pillars of Tirecraft Huntsville and Auto and the service they provide.
