In 1941 L.T. Dixon, my grandfather, saw a need in Elizabethtown for a tire and automotive facility to provide this area with quality products and service at a fair price, E-town Recapping Co. was developed to fill that need. This new trend of automotive service continued for many years under the direction of my father, Robert L (Bob) Wright.
With Elizabethtown and the surrounding areas growing rapidly in the mid 1960's Rowland Ricketts saw room in the market for another automotive service center and opened Rick's General Tire.
For many years these two companies thrived as friendly competitors in the local market meeting the automotive repair needs of the people in this area.
In September of 1995 myself, Robert L. (Robbie) Wright and Johnny Ricketts decided to join forces and opened Ride-Wright Tire, Inc. and continue to this day the tradition that was started by our families over 50 years ago.
Our commitment to you and this community is to always provide a quality product at a fair price without compromising the value of service.
Customer relationships that began with our grandparents and parents will continue with our children and many more generations to come. These relationships are far more important to us than any product we have to offer.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers for their support over the years and would like to invite new customers to come see what others have been experiencing as we continue the tradition of...
"Our Family Serving Yours for Over 60 Years"
