About Us

“Honesty, courtesy, customer satisfaction – that’s what is special about Trickle’s. We strive always to treat customers with a direct, honest approach.”

– Darwin Trickle, Owner, Trickle’s Tire and Auto
Trickle’s Tire and Auto has been locally owned and operated, serving the Ames community since 1960.
Del began work at Waters Firestone, which is now Trickle’s, in 1960. Del’s son Darwin began working for his father in 1981 and now, Darwin’s son Derek, the 3rd generation Trickle, is behind the counter. Community and family are very important to us and we can’t wait to serve the Ames and Central Iowa community for many, many years to come.
