Rick’s Tire Service in Windsor, Missouri, opened in 1992 with the goal of providing tire service and vehicle repairs to the local community. Rick Fosnow, owner, said they offer new and used tires for vehicles and agricultural equipment. He owns the shop with his wife and his daughter aids in managing the shop. “I can get a hold of about any brand of tire,” Fosnow said. “We are in a farm community and there are farmers around me so I do quite a few tractor tires.” He said used tires are harder to locate but he can offer them to some customers. “The used fires are what I can trade for off of vehicles,” Fosnow said. “The new vehicles coming out require bigger tires than the older cars. The used tires are just not around as much anymore.”

Fosnow said he purchased the old gas station in Windsor and renovated the facility to build the tire shop. He currently has three employees.

“I enjoy meeting customers and I’ve worked for tire companies most of my life,” Fosnow said. “I worked for a shop in Sedalia, Missouri, and some farmers asked me to open a tire shop in Windsor, so I did. I’ve been here servicing customers since.”
