Our Story

Kevin’s Auto & Tire was founded by Kevin Barnum in April of 2019. Kevin has been working on cars for 22 years, and is passionate about doing things right. While discussing the possibility of opening his own shop, he was shown an incredible deal on a warehouse that was ready to move his equipment into. Kevin and his staff will go the extra mile to keep your car on the road, at a price that won’t drive you to bankruptcy.

What Our Customers
are Saying

“Kevin is reliable and fair. He is very honest with his work and will not charge an arm and a leg. I will use Kevin for all of my future needs.”

– Tiffany Meirstin.

“I’ve been involved with auto sale/repair and classic car/hot rod builds for a long time. I have sent several people to Kevin over the years and he always did a great job for them. About a year ago I had problems getting a good precise weld on a difficult alternator bracket for one of my Vettes, so I went to Kevin and he did an awesome job on it. He is laid back and easy to get along with, but takes his work seriously.”

– Paul B. Conover

“We bought a used Ford Explorer that kept overheating and no one knew why. After several trips to the dealership and different mechanics in town where they couldn’t figure out it had a cracked seal gasket. Kevin found the problem and fixed it in record time and we haven’t had a problem with it since.”

– Laura Metzing

“I’ve known Kevin and Dora Barnum for many years now. In that time, I’ve come to know them both as honest and hard working. That translates well to their business model. They always have their customers best interest at heart. Kevin is a gifted mechanic and the only guy around I trust to work on my vehicles. On top of all that, his hourly rate is incredibly reasonable. Their commitment to quality is the best in town.”

– Jon Bates
