RNR_Lubbock_ribbonThe Grand Opening of the newest RNR Tire Express and Custom Wheels store was a day filled with activities and prizes.

This is the first RNR in Lubbock and is locally owned and operated by AJ Arthus, Steve Arthus and Jason Summers. The stores General Manager is John Minski and he has assembled a talented team to serve the community and ensure that RNR continues to provide the best selection of tires and wheels in the area and provide affordable payment options to the community.

“We are so excited to be open in Lubbock and we are overwhelmed by the response of the community since we opened.” Said AJ Arthus. The Grand Opening was a lot of fun and we had the opportunity to have a lot of people learn more about RNR. Besides having the Chamber of Commerce here for the Ribbon Cutting we had a number of local radio stations providing remotes throughout the day. Lots of fun.
