About LMR Tires - Port Matilda

About LMR Tires Founded in 1995, LMR Tires has spent the last 20 years delivering extensive auto repairs to satisfied customers throughout central Pennsylvania. We focus on building strong customer relationships and providing the highest quality of workmanship on each and every automotive repair.

LMR Tires has its roots in a 1994 partnership between Chris Lykens and Chuck Feighner. The original tire shop name was Feighner Tires. Chris Lykens sold tires at Lykens Market in Lamar, then the customers went to his home to get the tires mounted and balanced. All the tires were kept in the basement at his house.

In 1995, Chris made a deal with Bill Ingram from William J. Ingram Fuels to build a garage in Lamar beside Lykensss Market and sell tires. Chris and Chuck terminated their partnership and LMR Tires was born.

The name LMR comes from Lykens Market Racing. LMR was successful in Lamar and opened a second location in Bellefonte in 2001.

The agreement with the Ingrams was terminated in 2005 and LMR Tires moved to a new building and location next to the Comfort Inn. A car wash and mini-storage have been added since.

Through the years, LMR Tires has become a full-service garage with five locations – Mill Hall, Bellefonte, Centre Hall, Port Matilda, and Beech Creek – to cover Centre County and surrounding areas.

"Best service I have ever had. Blew tire on camper on highway and limped to Matida a couple miles away. Pulled in and Darren got us repaired and on our way in record time. Best service on a trip in al my years of travelling. Definately best service and price."
"Took my truck here for inspection since it was much closer than the shop I usually use. Only had put 4K on it since last inspection. It failed due to leaking shocks and bad ball joints. I was told "I wish I could fail your brake lines"! Not exactly how you want to phrase a repair you believe I need. I worked in automotive service and had a state inspection license for 20 years. In fact I used to let the local quality control officer for the state of PA use my shop for state inspection complaints to put a vehicle on a lift. We had discussed the inspection manual in length over many hours. For shocks to fail, they must drip fluid on the floor or allow more than 3 cycles of bounce when you push down on the bumper. Took the vehicle to my regular shop and I got to look at the shocks. Slightly damp! Vehicle passed inspection needing nothing. I was given a $424 estimate for work that wasn't needed at the present time. Even had a wheel alignment required after replacing the ball joints I didn't need. That should of been "recommended", not required. The state of PA doesn't care how quickly your tires will wear in regards to passing inspection. Will stuff need replaced down the road? Most likely. Was it REQUIRED to pass inspection and be safe to drive as is? NO. TOTAL MONEY GRAB-BEWARE! I guess they really do not take inspections as seriously as the reply stated. Provided contact info and after 3 weeks, no response."
"Amazing an knowledgeable staff. Great service an fast but done right. Thanks LMR Tire."
