John Cassett

Owner/ Finances, State Inspector

Owner/ Finances, State Inspector

John is the heart and soul of A.C. Tire. As the co-owner with Johnny, his son, he worked as the office manager, state inspector, and general “do-it-all” master before he retired in 2012 to spend more time with his wife of 49 years, Violet.

He started his automotive career in 1978 with his own service station, Lakeside Auto Care, (back when they pumped your gas and checked your oil) and managed a number of company-owned Tire Service Centers.

If you’re lucky, you can catch John at the shop, checking on things and making sure we’re taking care of his “baby.”
