Plaza Tire operates stores throughout Missouri as well as in southern Illinois, western Kentucky and northeastern Arkansas. The O’Fallon store is the seventh Plaza Tire location in the St. Charles County area.

The new store is located at 1000 North Main Street in O'Fallon. "It's an excellent location for us," says Scott Rhodes, vice president of Plaza Tire Service. "We have great visibility, and it's easy for customers to get in and out of the parking area."

The new O'Fallon location has seven vehicle bays. Services include tire installations and repairs, wheel balancing, alignments, brakes, shock and strut replacements, oil changes, and battery replacements. The location is also equipped to perform fluid flushes for transmissions, power steering systems, coolant systems and brake systems.

A large window overlooks the service bays so customers can watch as work is performed on their vehicles. Customer amenities include complimentary WiFi service.

"This second O'Fallon location is a natural progression for us," says Mark Rhodes, president of Plaza Tire Service. "We started doing business here in 1998, and we see this as an excellent opportunity to better serve this growing market."
