The company is a large direct dealer of Michelin products (Michelin, BFGoodrich, Uniroyal, Riken and Medalist) and also can supply customers with Goodyear, Dunlop, Kelly, Cooper and many other tire lines.

Chabill's was 87th on Modern Tire Dealer's Top 100 list of the largest independent tire dealers and is one of the largest independent tire dealers in Louisiana. The company's ASE-certified technicians also perform a variety of automotive services including oil changes, brake jobs, alignments, air conditioning repair and shock and strut replacement.
