Our History

Atlantic Tire & Service is a locally owned and operated business. We began serving Cary and the surrounding communities in December of 1998. Seven years later, in 2005, we added an additional location in Durham. A third location in Raleigh opened shop in 2009. We opened our 4th location in Raleigh in 2018. Most recently we opened a 5th location in South Cary in 2019. We are a member of multiple local Chambers of Commerce in the Triangle, and are highly involved with our local business community. Because of our commitment to providing customers with quality vehicle maintenance and tire installation, we have grown to become a respected business in the community. We have built our reputation on providing customers with speedy but reliable repairs. We are dedicated to the community that has given so much back to us, and have been honored to receive multiple local, regional and national prestigious awards, including:
