About Joe’s Auto & Tire

Joe’s Auto & Tire is a family owned and operated auto repair and tire sales center that was founded back in 2001. We’ve grown to a total of 2 convenient locations, 1 in Rochester, MN and one in Winona, MN to better serve all of the customers in our area.

Joseph Peter first started as an automotive technician in Rochester, MN. After years of working as a technician, Joe decided it was time to open his own repair shop. He enjoyed working as a technician and valued the relationships he established with his customers. He knew that he could offer exceptional customer service at his own shop, which he knew the people of his community were looking for when it came to auto repair.

Joe opened up the first Joe’s Auto & Tire location in 2001 in Rochester, MN. Joe's brother, Jayson, eventually joined the business and they opened up the second location in Winona, MN, in 2015.

Frequently asked questions:

When do I need my tires replaced?

Tread depths of less than 3/32" or after 6 years since the tires first touch the pavement. Other reasons to replace are poor handling or traction on slippery or wet surfaces. If your tires look worn to you, you should stop by any of our tire stores in the Southeast Minnesota area and let us make sure you and your family are safe on the road. Shop for tires here .

Do winter tires really make a difference?

Winter tires are designed with special compounds and materials specifically for cold, wet, ice and snowy conditions. In flat-ice tests at 10 miles per hour, cars stopped an average of 23' shorter than all-season tires and 30 plus feet shorter than summer tires. A simpler way to answer the question would be this, you don't wear your summer shoes or sandals out in the cold snow, ice, or rain. Safety is the top concern. Shop for snow tires here .
