Praise for Fox Tire

Fox Tire at 1164 Valley Road, Menasha (phone: 920-739-6213) is one of my top picks for good automotive service in the Fox Valley. This week I had my struts replaced. They did the work for almost half the quoted price of the dealer and did good work. I've also been happy with their sales and service for tires.

Fox Tire has long been family owned and operated. The family ownership began with Herman Ripp, who recently passed away. According to his Sept. 28, 2006 obituary, Herman was born in Madison and came to Appleton in 1965, where he purchased Fox Tire Company in 1967. Although he retired in 1993, the business is still in the hands of his family and maintains the good reputation it earned over the years.
