Our History

The first Purcell Tire and Service Center location was opened in 1936 by Robert M. Purcell in Washington, Missouri. He then established a second location in Granite City, Ill. In 1951. His son, Robert G. Purcell, opened a third location in De Soto, Missouri in 1964, and; under the direction of Robert G. Purcell and his wife, Juanita, those three locations expanded to more than 70 locations, 4 retread plants and a fleet of vehicles that provide pick-up and delivery service in 45 states!

Flash-forward to 2016, when Purcell Tire and Service Centers purchased Phelps Tire- we now look forward to serving all Phelps Tire customers with the same great service they came to expect from the previous owners of the enterprise, and the excellent service they will come to rely on from us.

Purcell Tire and Service Centers now rank as the third-largest independent commercial tire dealership in North America, the nation’s largest retreader for OTR tires, and one of the 10 largest independent tire store chains in the United States.

Purcell Tire and Service Centers is built on the tradition of quality service and products for all customers, and we undertake a personalized approach to tire and service needs. Choosing the right tire for your fleet, whether a fleet of one or one hundred, is vitally important to Purcell.

We invite you to call on us and find out how Purcell Tire can be of service to you.
