Harry’s Tire was established in 1913 by Harry M. Chadwick and started as a retail tire store on Garden Street in Auburn, NY. The service department specialized in brake services, front end alignment, exhaust system repairs, and tire retreading. With six fully-equipped tire service trucks, Harry’s Tire was able to make service calls all over Central New York and quickly became the largest independent tire retreading service in New York State.

In 1965, Harry’s son, Norman Chadwick, bought Harry’s Tire & Supply Co. under Norman’s ownership. The company continued to focus on tire retreading, retail tires, and general automotive repair. In the 1970s, Harry’s Tire moved from Garden Street to York Street. Attached to Crown Tire Co., Harry’s Tire no longer retreaded tires but evolved into a wholesale tire company. Norman owned Harry’s Tire until 1983 when it was sold to the Riester family. Harry’s Tire remained on York Street until 1998 when it moved to its current location on 142 Grant Avenue in Auburn, NY.
