The four-generation family business is believed to be one of the oldest family-owned tire dealerships in Western New York, according to The Daily News. The business actually began in 1922 when Fred Sloat, founder, began selling used tires out of his house. In 1927, Fred opened his first shop with his son Warren “Bus” Sloat.

Fred first partnered with Cooper in 1939 when he purchased a half-dozen Cooper tires from a Cooper salesman.

Today, Sloat Tire Shop is owned by is Todd Sloat, president and owner of Sloat Tire Shop. The shop strictly services tires.

“I’ve been all around the country trying to find another company like us,” Todd’s father, Ronald, told The Daily News. “We’re the only place that does only tires, that I can find. We don’t do any front-end alignment, we don’t do batteries, we don’t do brakes. We’re making it just on tires.”
