Since opening in 1963 by the Sweat Family, we have experienced consistent growth, resulting
in numerous expansions. Initially, Sweat Tire provided tire re-capping for $10.95/tire outdoors
near the Grand Theatre. Not long after having been in business, the theater was purchased to
serve as an office. In 1965, the adjoining vacant lot was closed in to create the 6-bay
automotive shop that you see today.
In need of additional office space and customer waiting areas, the Fossburg Furniture
store next door was purchased in 1980. Going along with our slogan, “We Stock What
The Competition Can’t!”, we expanded further in 1985, purchasing the Hub City Florist
building for warehousing our broad product line.
On October 1, 2007, Dewane and Carmen Hayes purchased Sweat Tire Company from third-generation
Sweats. Recently we have made substantial renovations to the historic Robertsdale location, as
well as expanded to Bay Minette, Fairhope and Loxley locations.
We’ve been helping customers across Baldwin County since 1963.
