Born in 1973

Southern Tire Mart was founded in 1973 by Ernest Duff in Columbia, Mississippi. As a prominent lawyer in his hometown, the business was intended as a side investment. However, as it quickly grew, so did the need for dedicated management. That’s why his two sons, Tommy and Jim joined the company business after finishing their respective college careers. 

Today, as the company now has locations from coast to coast, Tommy and Jim Duff are still at the helm doing everything they can to make our team members and customers happy.

The Aim is Always Excellence

At each of our retail, commercial, and retread locations we continue the mission we began in 1973: serve families and businesses with the best tires and service in the market. We’ve spent decades delivering extensive tire installments and vehicle repairs to satisfied customers throughout the country. Anytime you step foot in a Southern Tire Mart, we focus on building a strong relationship with you and providing the highest quality of workmanship on each and every service we perform.
