About Mountain View Tire & Service
Mountain View Tire was established in 1987 with the opening of their first store in Duarte, California, by founder Nick Mitsos, who is the company's CEO and President. With the help of his 3 sons, Chris, Mike and Paul, along with his sister Irene, sister-in-law Maddy and brother-in-law Tony, Nick has grown Mountain View Tire to 30 locations spanning Southern California. It is truly a family owned and operated business. The core value of their business philosophy is a catch phrase they use: "Create the WOW Experience" with the customer. They ran out of family members quite a few years ago, but they predicate their success on hiring and employing world-class people that serve world-class customers. Mountain View Tire carries the best branded tire products and delivers a positive automotive service in a clean, friendly environment.
