Tire Man.

Tire Man 2.0

We had the first tire man in Sumter that was taken down once we moved locations. We have now built Tire Man version 2 at our location on Broad Street across from Shaw Air Force Base. Our tire man is built directly across the street from the Tuskegee Airmen P51 Mustang monument that was put up last year, so it was only right that we had our tire man saluting the Tuskegee Airmen.
