Giving to the Community
Wonderland Tire gives back to the community in a number of ways. We contribute to the 4H Club by purchasing livestock from their farming program. We proudly sponsor little league baseball teams and church sports. We have memberships in local Chamber of Commerce organizations for each of our locations. In the Spring and Summer, be sure to check out one of our Customer Appreciation events for a cookout and free prizes!
Wonderland Tire cares about the environment, and we make sure our stores contribute positively to local recycling programs. We recycle all of our scrap tires, sending them to local programs that convert the tire rubber into landscape chips, running tracks, and asphalt. Don’t be surprised if your used tire material winds up being used for local playgrounds, athletic fields, and public works!
