Castroville Tire is owned by Cesar Padilla, a Castroville native and graduate of North Monterey County High School. His father, who is retired, was the former owner of Campos Body Shop in Castroville. Growing up around his father’s business, Cesar had an early exposure and developed a deep interest in cars.

A year after graduating from high school, Cesar bought Castroville Tire in 2002 and doubled the size of the shop. Over the past dozen years, he has sold over 30,000 tires and ensures that Castroville Tire offers very, very competitive prices.

Unlike many other tire retailers, Castroville Tire will take appointments, as well as drop-ins on a first come, first served basis. The professional team at Castroville Tire is widely respected for their quick, efficient tire installation, honesty, and extensive expertise in the tire field.

Castroville Tire carries all major tire brands, from economical to high end tires and maintains an inventory of over a thousand tires, including a large selection of mud/all terrain tires. Tires can be specially ordered overnight or sometimes are even delivered on the same day. Castroville Tire is proud to be an authorized Parelli Dealer, one of the top tire manufacturers in the world. Castroville Tire also sells a wide array of rims, does 4-wheel alignment, wheel balancing, tire repair and rotation. They offer financing through GE Capital as well.

With a bilingual team that is dedicated to providing the highest level of quality customer service, Castroville Tire services many large agricultural firms, including truck fleets and other vehicles from Ocean Mist, Ausonio, Sea Mist, Cypress Berry Farms, Valley Pride, A & S Metals, Seven Up, Boutonnet Farms, Scattini and Sons, and many more.

According to Cesar Padilla, “With your family’s safety riding on your tires, it is important to us to offer the best people, products, installation and customer service. Having the right tires for your vehicle saves you a lot of fuel, stops the car more quickly and safely, reduces road noise, and provides a much more comfortable ride!”
