Founded in 1984 and with roots tracing back to 1939, Riker’s Automotive and Tire is located at 5700 Central Florida Parkway in Orlando, FL as an automotive repair, tire, and wheel center. We have spent the last
The Riker family has been repairing vehicles in central Florida since the creation of the automobile. Before that, David O. Riker built and repaired wagon wheels locally.
Orval A. Riker purchased commercial land in 1939 and constructed a large repair facility with a gasoline pump out front. The shop was named O.A. Riker and Son Garage. The shop, which was sold in the 1970s, is still being used as an auto repair facility today.
O. Vernon Riker opened his first Chevron service station in 1973, on Sandlake Rd. in Orlando, near I-4. He soon added two more stations, one in Windermere and another near the airport in Sandlake. All three stations had service bays and did complete auto repairs.
Current owner V. Brent Riker opened a Mobil station on International Drive near the Civic Center in 1984. This station had three service bays, did complete auto repairs and was one of the first Mobil Lube Express stations in Florida. Riker’s also operated tow trucks from the station. Before long there was more work than could be done in the three-bay location. Land was purchased for the present 10-bay facility to be constructed at 5700 Central Florida Parkway. The shop is the only Bridgestone/Firestone-affiliated dealer with an Orlando address.
The Mobil station was rebuilt without service bays and the towing business was moved to 1930 Central Florida Parkway in 1997. The business was again expanded to a three-bay Pennzoil Express Lube with a full-service car wash at 5694 Central Florida Parkway in 2000.
We completely remodeled our sales showroom and waiting room area to update it with comfortable seating and the latest technology in 2010.
We're the closest auto repair shop to attractions like Sea World, Universal Studios, International Drive, and just outside of the Disney World property. If you are in our area, stop by and see all that we have to offer at a Bridgestone 5 Star Dealer.
We handle fleet service and commercial and national accounts.
