Peru, IN – Since 1986, the people of Peru have come to know and trust City Tire of Peru, Inc. for all their auto care needs. Located at 85 East Main Street, in Peru, City Tire of Peru offers a full line of brand name tires along with being a NAPA Auto Care Center staffed with ASE-Certified technicians ready to service your vehicle. Complete under-car services, such as oil changes, brake repairs, exhaust, front end work, suspension and wheel alignments are readily available at competitive prices.

Brian Shively and Troy Armstrong own the business and operate it along with Brian’s wife Marilyn, the service manager. Brian and Marilyn’s son Ian has also worked in the business since 2009. Sara Murphy, Marilyn’s niece also works in the office occasionally.

According to Marilyn, the City Tire of Peru has been a NAPA Auto Care Center since 2003.

What is a NAPA Auto Care Center? It is the largest network of auto repair centers in the country. City Tire of Peru partners with Napa because they have the most integrated and value-driven programs, discounts and tools available.

City Tire of Peru was chosen by Napa because they are independently owned and operated. They have quality standards, integrity, and expertise in their field. They employ ASE certified technicians. They have an extended warranty that covers parts and labor for 24 months or 24,000 miles and is honored at every Napa Auto Care Center location nationwide. This means no matter where you are if you have trouble with a covered repair, they'll take care of it at no extra charge.

NAPA recently provided funding to help City Tire of Peru renovate the outside of their building and updated their sign which caused some people in Peru to believe that the company had been sold to NAPA. That is not the case and the company continues to be under the ownership of Brian and Troy.

If you’re looking for a set of tires, City Tire of Peru can order just about any brand of tire you are looking for. They currently have rebates available on five major brands of tires. See Marilyn at City Tire for more information on these rebates.
