KNOXVILLE’s #1 Tire Service & Auto Repair Shop

Matlock Tire Service & Auto Repair began as a small service station in Lenoir City, TN, back in 1953. It was founded by Joe Matlock, who built his business on treating customers fairly and providing excellent service to them. 65 years later his son, Jimmy Matlock, has expanded the business to four locations: KnoxvilleAthens, Maryville, and Lenoir City. Jimmy, like his father, is devoted to customer service. Matlock is a full service auto repair shop, assisting with not only tires, but batteries, filters, fluids, engine diagnostics, heating & AC repair, belts & hoses, windshield wipers, and more!

“Stopped to have a tire checked for a slow leak. They took my vehicle right in; they found and removed a screw and plugged the tire. To top it off, there was no charge for the service. One could not ask for better service, and I intend to return to this business when I purchase new tires.”

“Camped in Lenoir City and were leaving in 2 days when noticed a leak in tire stem. Needed a valve stem replaced on rv tire. Called on Friday and they were able to take us in the next morning. Got there at 7am and valve was fixed by 8:30am! Highly recommend this company! Great timely service, knowledgeable and pleasant!”

This is the best repair shop I have ever done business with. The staff is friendly, the prices are fair and they are sympathetic to the customer. They never try to upcharge, they just tell you what you need to get fixed now and what can wait. They have a comfy waiting room with high speed wifi. Above all else, their customer service and willingness to serve the buyer is what sets Matlock apart from all other repair shops around. If you are tired of getting jerked around by car repair shops, give Matlock a try!

In my hurry to get from Mississippi to Townsend, TN I failed to get my 5,000 mile service. Just as I got to Lenoir City my car maintenance light came on. I had no idea where to take my vehicle, but my GPS led me Matlock Tire and Auto Repair just off the interstate at HWY 321. I cannot begin to tell them how appreciative I am for their courtesy, professionalism and honesty! They were extremely busy but managed to get me in and out of there in record time, the price was better than I could have received at home (thank you) and on top of everything else they gave me a customer discount!!!! Who could possibly ask for more??? I travel this way quite often and if needed, Matlock will definitely be the one I do business with in the future. Thank you Matlock Tire/Auto Service for making this such a pleasant experience. You all were an amazing blessing from God!

“Owner came up and shook my hand and asked me if I wanted a Coke or water to drink. Had them check my brakes. Told me everything was okay. Did not charge me anything. I will go back there next time I need my car worked on. Professional staff and service department.

Women who manage their own car repairs, you need to know this. Regardless of who you deal with at Matlock they will always treat you with respect. They don’t try to jip you because you are a woman. You can trust what they tell you about your car. The trust is so great that my daughter drives from Chattanooga to have Matlock repair /maintain her vehicle.
