Get to Know the Truck Repair Shop that Cares in Clare, MI

Meet Our Owner

Marlin Fox opened Quality Truck & Tire in Clare on October 15, 2007. For years, he had dreamt of opening his own business, and working on large trucks and buying and selling equipment were his passions.

Marlin has always enjoyed taking things apart to see how they work. From an early age, he dreamed of being a mechanic. At 19, he took the first steps toward that dream by landing a job repairing wrecked trucks and putting them back together. At 27, he bought an empty building in Clare Michigan. He started out with zero customers but, through hard work and long hours, he gained work from many local fleets and farmers as well as customers coming off the interstate. Having that same passion for his work and an outstanding team has made Quality Truck and Tire a respected and thriving shop in Clare, Michigan.
