Dear Nu-Tread Tire Customer,

This is to inform you that after 85 years, Nu-Tread Tire and Auto Service is closed.

The time is right for us to sell our property. As you are probably aware, real estate values in East Boston are at an all time high and I am at an age where I am looking forward to retirement.

We very much have appreciated your business throughout the years. We have served many of you for multiple generations, and many of you have become close friends. You provided me with a livelihood that made it possible for me to put food on the family table, and send my children to college. I'm most proud and I'm most appreciative to all of you.

In telling some of our customers my plans, many showed a deep concern as to what to do about maintaining their automobiles. After doing much research I can make some suggestions as to where to continue with your automotive service needs. Although I can't personally vouch for them, these three businesses have been recommended to me. I've talked with the owners and they have promised me they will take excellent care of all former Nu-Tread customers. They are as follows:

Braz Motors, Owner: Cleison


306 Bremen Street, East Boston

NC Auto, Owner: John Curley


175 Broadway, Revere

Pro Automotive, Owner: Ira


339 Squire Road, Revere

I also encourage you if you have tire needs to use Montvale Tire in Melrose. Like Nu-Tread they are tire professionals and Montvale's owner Tony Koles has a very similar business philosophy as mine. He is always focused on doing the right thing for his customers. I've known Tony for many years and I can personally vouch for him and his manager Rich Ells, who has been with Tony for over 40 years! They are consummate professionals and I believe when you have tire needs a trip to Melrose is well worth it. You can make an appointment with them so you can be in and out quickly or even make arrangements ahead of time to use their loaner car. Call them at 781-662-7144 or look them up at for further information.

Again, I am most indebted to all of you for your business for the past 85 years. Thank you and God bless!
