Message from the Shop

Ken and Vince were both born in San Francisco and raised in the same neighborhood for years before becoming business partners in 1971. Ken Toscanini and Vince Ippolito combined their skills, knowledge, enthusiasm, passion for cars, and their names (Toscanini + Ippolito) to create Toscalito Tire & Automotive.

Starting in 1971, “The two nice Italian boys” (Ken and Vince), worked as a pair at Shell stations in the Marina and Fisherman's Wharf area of San Francisco. For years, their stations offered gasoline, auto repair, AAA towing, and car rental to many loyal customers. In 1975, they decided to concentrate on tire sales and auto repair by opening their first Goodyear Tire Store: Lombard Tire & Automotive. In the 35 years since, they have continued to open new shops closer to their homes in Marin: Corte Madera, Ignacio, Terra Linda, downtown San Rafael, and then Vallejo.

The service was great My truck broke down in their lot I was there for a tire appointment and wound up getting two new sensors My truck runs terrifically and that's saying something considering it has over 400000 miles on it Only thing i wouldn't recommend would be transmissions because I don't know if they do that.
