J&W Automotive is now Part of the Telle Tire & Auto Centers Family

For years, when you had car troubles in South County, you’d turn to the go-to shop in the area – J&W Automotive. From batteries to brakes, to tune-ups — their friendly and reliable staff has worked to make sure your vehicle is reliable and safe.

Now those same smiling faces are joining the Telle Tire & Auto Center family.

Like J&W Automotive, Telle Tire & Auto Centers are family-owned and operated with a focus on building lasting relationships with customers like you. We take seriously the relationships the Grebe family built over their decades in South County, and will work to be excellent stewards of the high standards Kathy and Jeff Grebe set more than 30 years ago.

“The Grebe family has done a fantastic job building great customer relationships over the years,” said Telle Tire & Auto Centers owner Aaron Telle. “You can tell they really care about their customers and Telle Tire cares about them and the J&W family.”

In fact, J&W Automotive will continue to be managed by their son Jake Grebe, just as it has been for more than 15 years. 

“I began working at the shop cleaning floors at 13, started running parts, customer transport and working on cars the summer I turned 16,” said Jake. “I’ve been working full time at the shop since I was 20.”

When you come in for auto repair services, you will still have a fluid and easy experience. You’ll interact with the same smiling faces that are more than happy to take the time to explain every job and provide an estimate in advance. The only difference is the service is now powered by Telle Tire.
