Auto Repair and Tire Service in St. Augustine, FLRay's Tire Pros was established in 1982. Raymond Usher was the original founder and owner. Ray was a former 20 year employee of the Goodyear Tire company and managed its first store in St. Augustine, located at 236 West King Street. In 1969 Goodyear opened a new store to facilitate the growth of St. Augustine at 149 King Street. Goodyear closed the original smaller location and moved Ray to manage their new store.
