Hafen's O.K. Tire Store [gone]

Hafen's O.K. Tire Store opened in 1954. In 2017, the store was open and the signs were still there. In 2018, everything was gone and there was a vacant lot. For more about the O.K. Tire chain and examples of the company's signs, see this page.

Tri County Tire
Uniontown, PA
Tri County Tire has been around since 1955. It has been at this location since 1957. The neon sign was installed in 1958 and was lit until the early 1970s. In 2005, it was refurbished and is lit at night. I have never seen a sign like this one but they must have been mass-produced. The building was constructed in the late 1890s as a brewery. [map]

Goodrich dealer [gone]
Columbus, OH
Sucher Tire
Detroit, MI
Body's by Bruce
Fresno, CA
This embossed plastic Goodrich sign in Columbus is gone now. This photo is from 2010. By 2012, the sign had been replaced with a new one advertising for Wheels Unlimited.

Sucher Tire was established in 1922 which makes it Detroit's oldest tire dealer. This sign is probably from the 1960s or 1970s. [map]

The Body's by Bruce Goodrich sign is probably from the 1960s. They must have been mass-produced but I have not seen another one like it. [map]

T&R Tire Center [gone]
Hagerstown, MD
Rausch Tire
Wellington, KS
The Goodrich sign at T&R Tire Center was installed around 1958. The business closed around 2015 but this sign was still there in 2016. By 2017, the entire building and signs were gone and there was a vacant lot.

I believe Rausch Tire opened here in the 1970s. These Goodrich signs are probably from then. [map]

This B.F. Goodrich Building was built in 1930. These photos are from 2015. In 2019, the building and details had been painted white. [map]
