Back in the mid 1980s, Greg Kalemba opened a small tire shop at a gas station on Highway 116 near Graton, California. He ran the tire operation while his young sons helped out after school and during their summer vacations pumping gas and checking oil. By the time the older ones were teens, the business had moved to its current location south of Sebastopol. Greg and his eldest three boys ran the business until his retirement in 2017. The oldest one, Jeff, is now holding the fort down with an incredibly hardworking team that (during school breaks) includes a third generation of Kalembas.
