About Stratham Tire

Lionel (Nelly) Labonte first opened his business in Stratham, NH on December 7, 1961. Initially in business as Stratham Sunoco, Lionel grew the business through delivering fast service for a fair price. Always delivering "a buck for a buck" he quickly developed a loyal customer base, and expanded his business to include tire sales. Before long (1966) Stratham Tire was formed. Stratham Tire with its team of 150 dedicated employees have been in business now for over 55 years.   Since Lionel's passing in December of 2014, the business is continuing to thrive under the management of his children.  We continue to earn your business every day, and strive to be your first choice for tires and service.
