Richmond, Meet Virginia Tire & Auto!

Virginia Tire & Auto Richmond

Virginia Tire & Auto is happy to announce that we are expanding to Virginia’s capital — Richmond! In January 2019, we will be opening our doors in Harpers Mill in Chesterfield County.

Chesterfield County has a rich history when it comes to roadways. In fact, the very first paved road in Virginia was built in Chesterfield County back in 1808. Now, Richmond is home to the Richmond International Raceway and the host of the annual NASCAR Sprint Cup. We’re thrilled to become a part of the area’s rich automotive history and local charm, and can’t wait to contribute to the Richmond community.

Who We Are

For more than 40 years, we have been Northern Virginia’s first choice for car care. Proudly family owned and operated, we’ve followed our core values — which include being professional, attentive, genuine, and forward thinking — from the opening of our first location in Fairfax City to our newest location in Richmond.

At Virginia Tire & Auto, we invest in the best equipment and training for our employees. Over the last year, our employees have completed classroom training sessions that totaled more than 3,800 hours. More than three-quarters of our staff are certified “Tire Experts,” all of our sales associates have finished the Goodyear Performance Tire Specialist classes, and our technicians have over 310 ASE certifications.

Virginia Tire & Auto’s History

In 1976, Virginia Tire & Auto’s founder, Myron Boncarosky, decided he wanted to be a business owner after spending a decade at Texaco. What started as one auto shop — the Main Street Shell in Fairfax City — has now expanded to more than 14 upscale, high-tech tire and repair shops across Northern Virginia.

Today, Myron’s son-in-law, Mike Holmes, and daughter, Julie Holmes, run the family business as CEO and President. From the day that Virginia Tire & Auto was born, we’ve placed our customers and employees before anything else. When you choose to come to Virginia Tire & Auto, we want you to feel like you are a part of our family.
